PepTalk® Pillow - Blue
Has this happened to you? You pick your child up from school and ask them how their day was. All you get back is a grunted 'okay'... so you ask them what they did. 'Nothing!'
Children can be hesitant to talk about their day, worries or feelings with parents. But if they keep their problems bottled up, it can lead to problems.
The PepTalk Pillow is a fun and easy way for children to open up. The pillow comes with a brief guide on how to start a conversation and what to say if worries are raised, making it the perfect tool for parents looking for an easy and daily check-in with their child. With questions about feelings, memories, dreams and self-image, the PepTalk Pillow helps children explore all aspects of their lives.
By giving children a comfortable place to share their thoughts and feelings, the PepTalk Pillow can help pave the way for healthy communication between parents and children.

Do I need to use the PepTalk Pillow every night?
You don't need to use it every night but as children enjoy the one-to-one time and conversations so much, they will be reminding you to have a PepTalk most days! You'll be surprised how quickly it becomes part of your bedtime routine.
How long should a PepTalk take?
We understand that family life can be chaotic and time is short, so we designed the pillow prompts to shape a meaningful conversation whether you have 2 or 20 mins.

I can't recommend the PepTalk Pillow highly enough. It's really amazing how something that looks so simple has transformed bedtime with our son and really helped us have proper conversations.Read Trustpilot Reviews
I was struggling to get him to open up but I knew he was dealing with lots of anxiety and negativity so the best thing about the pillow for me is that he is leading the conversations each night and reminding me to use it before lights out. He looks forward to our chats and the questions prompt all sorts of discussions we wouldn't usually have. I love that they often lead to funny stories and anecdotes from his day that he wouldn't usually share.
I’d definitely recommend the PepTalk Pillow.Read Trustpilot Reviews
It’s a well thought through idea which has enabled me to ask some pretty soul searching questions to my son, in an unassuming way, which has led to some pretty meaningful discussions that wouldn’t have happened otherwise.
Enabling a child to speak about their feelings is no mean feat, and the pillow certainly facilitates this.
It has lead to some very charming and soul searching conversations with my 8 year old son.Read Trustpilot Reviews
It has actually transformed our evening routine and is now an integral part of bedtime.
I believe that our emotional health is closely linked to mental health and I was struggling to find the right time (or place) to have these one-on-one chats with him. The pillow provides all of the leading questions so he can explain exactly how he is feeling comfortably in his own bed.
We are a mum and daughter team on a mission to tackle childhood anxiety.
My eldest daughter Matilda (age 10) is a smart, creative, outgoing girl and a sensitive big thinker. Her worries can often escalate into big emotions, which can impact the whole family and for us, like so many others, lockdown was an emotionally challenging time.
As a way to focus on something positive and away from the worries keeping her awake at night, we decided to combine learnings from our family’s journey, with experience from my career in creative communications, to create tools to help families connect.
We hope you enjoy your PepTalks. Thank you for your support.
Alex & Matilda 💜
