“Whether they’re expressing their creativity or pretending to be a princess or superhero, kids love to use their imaginations. It’s through imagination that we learn to solve problems. It’s through problem solving that we recognize our strengths and superhero selves. An imaginative child is an empowered child.” – Karen Bonnici
Encouraging children to be creative, imaginative, and helpful to others allows them to grow in confidence and become super adults. As a mother, professional storyteller, musician, and teaching artist, I have learned the importance of teaching our children to believe in their own super strength. My Super Blanky® products reaffirm the superhero in every child!
When my children were young, imaginative play and confidence building were paramount in our home. Cuddling and cozying under a blanket to hear a story or to share a hug was a nightly occurrence. I sewed costumes and collected creative play toys for them. They loved to dress up and engage in role play as the hero and heroine, as all children do. Through love, stories, and childhood play they grew to be strong and confident adults. My children still have plenty of hugs for me, and I am profoundly proud of the two amazing people they have become.
In 2011, I created Super Blankys® for my small nieces and nephew in order to give them the gifts of imagination, comfort, and empowerment. They absolutely loved their superhero blanket, and immediately people began to ask when I was going to create and sell Super Blankys®. It wasn’t long before I began making and selling my products by hand, and I’ve been imagining super things ever since!
Super Blanky® products are now manufactured with the same philosophy I used to raise my children: cuddle them, teach them to be kind and helpful to others, give them plenty of imaginative playtime, the confidence to solve problems, and they will grow to be super kids! They are available in Target® stores nationwide and at target.com!
I am proud to have built a such a creative product and envision super things ahead of us. Follow and explore with us as we soar to new heights!
