Omi the elephant is an interactive friend that teaches kids mindful breathing, emotional regulation skills & positive thinking.
Simply listen to Omi's soothing voice as he guides you through a mindful breathing exercise and helps kids feel calm.
Awareness of the breath is the most BASIC and valuable mindfulness technique.
With Omi’s help, a child learns this skill easily and begins to understand how to self regulate their thoughts and feelings.
Simply push Omi's paws to hear one of 4 guided exercises.
Daily RESET //Omi's Right Hand: this guided meditation can be used daily to help foster a healthy mindful habit. Omi helps you identify your emotion and then, take a moment to STOP,BREATHE & RESET.
Sad or Mad RESET//Omi's Left Hand: this guided breathing exercise helps you let go of any negative thoughts by teaching kids to "blow out" their bad feelings.
30 SECOND RESET//OMi's Right Foot: sometimes we are just to busy in our day, but that's when bite-sized mindfulness is most important! Omi invites kids to re-center by saying "let's breathe together" and guides them to enjoy 3 deep breaths.
CALM MUSIC//Omi's Left Foot: this setting helps soothe children when they need a moment to feel calm and relaxed. No instructions needed.
The name Omi comes from the word ‘Om’.
When ‘om’ is repeated during yoga or mindful practices, it is believed to have a calming effect on the body and nervous system.
recommended age: 3-11 years of age.
I love this SEL stuffed animal. It is a great resource for both schools and parents to help children calm down when they are experiencing something challenging. It's cuddly and helps children refocus on listening to a cute toy and reset.
Great tool for independence
I got this for my daughter who struggles with anxiety. Bedtime is when a lot of her worries surface. She has been able to stay calm and fall asleep without me by building in a routine of reading and then listening to the elephant to fall asleep. My daughters also love the koala. I like that they both give them independence to practice their regulation skill, so that their guidance isn’t always coming from me. Sometimes when you’re sad you need mom, but sometimes it’s nice for them to know they can help themselves too. My kids are 6 and 8. I also have an elephant and koala in my 4th grade special education classroom. They are very useful. I love what this company has done to support mental health in children.
Omi has been helpful, and the recordings are clear, easy to understand, confident and calming. I’m 8 and I love Omi. I hope more people buy Omi.
Nice product, but didn't work for my son
My son liked it for a few days and hasn't touched it since. Not a fault of the product. Nothing really helps calm him down, and he's not big into stuffies.
I bought it for my child, but I find myself using it on my rough days.
