Scare Me Not Monster Review and Giveaway

Winner Comment #110 -  KIM said...  Follow via GFC.


A few months ago my daughter saw an episode of Sonny With a Chance and decided that she was afraid of the dark. I don't remember much about the episode except the fact that it featured a skit about monsters under a bed. I don't think it was particularly scary, but it was enough to ruin my four year old's sleep habits.

She went from going to bed entirely by herself, to refusing to sleep in her room at night.

Because of this I was so excited when I heard about Scare Me Nots.


Scare Me Nots are plush monsters that are trained at the Scare Me Not Academy to protect and keep watch of your little ones room.  There are 9 Scare Me Not Graduates, each with their own look and speciality.

I looked at the site with my daughter and let her pick her favorite monster.  She picked Defender Dave because he has the same name as her papa and he has eyes all around his head so he can watch everywhere at once.

Defender Dave was a lot bigger than I expected and actually really cute.  I love that he has velcro on his tail which allows him to hang upside down and keep watch around the room.


 My daughters love him and have dubbed him Papa Monster.

I don't know if Kik's fear is completely gone, but since Papa Monster has become a member of our household Kik no longer talks about hidden monsters and she'll sleep in her bed all night.  Which I'm very thankful for.

To Buy -  If you know of a little kid that's afraid of the dark or hidden monsters, Scare Me Nots are definitely worth looking in to.  They would also be a great buy for little boys that love stuffed animals.  Scare Me Not Monsters come in two different sizes - full and travel - and retail from $15 to $25. 

To Win - Scare Me Nots is giving away your choice of monster to one of you.
