Worry Beans

Worry-Beans

Taylored Curiosities has released the Worry Beans. These roughly 1.5" tall handmade resin figures are available for £6.50 each.

As you may know, I have always offered a selection of art toys that addresses anxiety issues and worrying. I had my plush line of Feelings and now I am introducing 'Worry Beans'. Feeling Autumnal I have adorned the first batch with little acorn caps. Each set comes with a Worry Bean (each one hand sculpted and painted with an 'aged' face effect, so no two are alike), a Worry Beanlet (waiting to grow big enough to wear it's own acorn hat), instructions, stickers and a badge (both with original illustrations on), all gift wrapped and ready to give to someone special or someone who needs to worry less. I think anxiety and worry is something we don't always think about and actually a lot of people struggle with it every day. Keeping a Worry Bean nearby may help in small way.
