~Post made possible by Pocket Frenz~
I am so excited to share with you what I think is a very unique product created by the very clever Marni and Jason Hefter. Their son, like so many of our children, was shy and he had a hard time being separated from his parents and the safety of home. He would only go to school if he had his friends with him, although his friends were tactile cloths that Marni and Jason would put into his pockets so he could have the comfort of home within his fingertips. Problem was they would frequently fall out and his friends would be lost. The need to help their son feel safe, and most important, remind him that he is not alone and that home and friends are within reach are what inspired Pocket Frenz. Pocket Frenz is a soft, comfortable, snugly, bright, fun, warm and creative hoodie with frenz sewn right into them!
My 9 year old Ally and I had so much fun looking for the perfect friend. Ally has had a rough couple of years. She has endured bullying and threats even though she is a very sweet young lady who has a very kind heart. Unfortunately, I think that is what makes her a target. Due to the bullying she tends to feel alone and no matter what I say it boils down to I am not there with her at every moment. She has to face those moments on the playground or on the bus alone. and I think that is part of the reason she chose Ali N. Vasion the Alien Invasion hoodie.
She says it is like having a best friend in your pocket because they are both Ally/Ali and they both like Brussel sprouts and chocolate! Ali N. Vasion the Alien Invasion hoodie, made her an instant hit at school and on the bus. All the kids loved her hoodie and wanted Frenz of their own. Ally has a very long bus ride, over an hour, now she and her friends can play with her pocket puppets on the long trip. I have heard less complaining about the bus ride since Ali arrived. When each of my children started kindergarten it never failed there was at least one child crying and wanting to go home and I think one of these hoodies could help during times like that. The hoodies are so warm and soft it feels like a gentle embrace and as you put your hands in the pockets you are greeted by your friend holding your hand reminding you that you are not alone and you are safe.
If your child is not interested in Ali N. Vasion have no fear there are other hoodies and each one as creative as Ali! The Frenz have their own story, their own likes just as your child does. Plus, there are also Hoodies that have a little more flair and character, like the Yes & No or Thumbs Up / Down pockets!
