The nightmare protector is a sleep mask with a story behind it that it’s magical and gives children control over their dreams. We’ve added a doll and a book to make it fun and effective. Here’s what it looks like, though this is just a prototype.
There’s well established psychology that with practice and guidance you can control your dreams. This can help children who are plagued with frequent nightmares. Lack of sleep can have long term affects on children including depression. The whole family suffers as well.
My step-daughter Emma, 9 at the time, didn’t know these things, but intuitively gave her little sister who was struggling with nightmares a JetBlue sleep mask and told her it would allow her to have happy dreams. It worked.
Two years ago when Emma was struggling with depression issues of her own (that’s another story which thankfully turned out okay), we started this project in earnest to give her something positive to focus on.
Unfortunately, the toy manufacturer to whom we entrusted lots of money has produced not much more than delays and excuses. We’re trying to move foward in the face of never seeing that money again.
That’s where you come in. Can you help us out by either sharing our story or backing our kickstarter?
We need money for manufacturing 1000 dolls, masks, and booklets. We also have plans for packaging and a full size book, as well as a girl version of the doll. And of course there’s marketing expenses.
It’s going to be amazing and I can’t wait to be able to share it with the world.
