When we first saw the Nightmare Snatcher Journal ($20, at Etsy), we couldn't help but think of the Simpsons episode in which Homer makes the "comforting" clown bed for Bart. The connection being that sometimes what a parent thinks is cute or fun may be terrifying in their child's eyes.
However, we want to give the Nightmare Snatcher Journal the benefit of the doubt since it is so darn cute (in a scary way) and is a great idea. We're especially loving Swampmop and his little/big eye combination. From their Etsy store description:
Furry and fearless, friendly but ferocious, these Nightmare Snatchers are the perfect journals for writing down and drawing out all that scares, frightens, and worries. You have only to recite the spell found at the front of the book, record your woes on their aged tea-stained pages, then mark your page with their long tail and your faithful friend the Nightmare Snatcher will eat your fears away.
It only makes sense when you consider how adults are constantly advised to write down what's bothering them to help alleviate stress and worry. We dare say that this journal almost makes it fun to have a bad dream. Recommended for children 5 and up (due to small parts).
