We are a team of researchers from King’s College London who have created an interactive toy together with Committee for Children — a leading developer of social-emotional learning programs for children. The little, bear-like toy was designed to help children calm down when they need to and manage their feelings in better ways.
We are looking for children aged 8-10 years old and their parents/carers to take part in a study to help us understand if the toy supports children in the way it was intended to. The study will involve having the toy at home for at least 2 weeks (we will post it to you) and completing a few questionnaires online. The questionnaires take around 20 minutes to complete for parents, and 10 minutes for children. You will be asked to complete the questionnaires a total of 3 times over a period of 6 weeks.
Children will be able to keep the toy and you will also receive a £30 electronic voucher upon completion of the study in appreciation of your time and help.

We would be grateful if you could pass this on to any parents of children aged 8-10 years you think might be interested!
