Dream Play / Application

Dream Play
Dream Play

During the age of 3-6 normal fears develop and a child’s imagination is very active, causing an increasing amount of nightmares. This creates a strong feeling of anxiety about going to bed and distress in their everyday life. For parents, this is a challenging period not knowing how to support their child dealing with their fear. Dream play is an application that reimagines yesterdays way of supporting children with teddy bears or comforting blankets, preventing an over-dependency to objects to fall asleep, by instead providing families with a strategy that support children to communicate and process their nightmares at an early age.
