Salt Lake City, UT, United States – Zen Friends began development in 2018. Manufactured in May 2020, these products achieved immense success within a very short time from their launch and became very trendy among kids and yogis alike.
The mission of Zen Friends is to encourage the practice of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga for kids. Zen Friends primary concern is reaching out to the youth at a young age because that is when the brain develops.
Each day in the U.S. there is an average of 3,703+ suicide attempts made by young people in grades 9-12. Unfortunately, suicide is all around us. People think that it is just adults that get affected, but that is where those people are mistaken. Now, more than ever with the changing society and fears that have been projected out to society, children should be equipped with tools to live a happier and healthier life.
Zen Friends offer sloths with ultra-soft fur and plush body designed for comfort. These sloths, named Sage & Shiloh, are designed specifically for kids yoga and have been shown to increase concentration, improve sleep, and bring inner peace and happiness. These sloths come with a Bluetooth speaker inside, allowing you to connect them to your smart device to play guided meditations, sleep music, and even audiobooks. They also have a fresh lavender scent thanks to their lavender sachet made from a Utah farm.
Kristina Butterfield, the mind behind Zen Friends, took a stuffed animal, something that all kids love, and gave it a new meaning. The question is, why were sloths chosen? Well, because sloths have so much to tell us about slowing down and enjoying our lives! Kristina is a mother of 3 and she realized the importance of doing yoga with kids. She made Zen Friends for interactive kids yoga and kids meditation, not just for her children, but for everyone else who needs to live a happy and healthy life. Not just now, but forever.
When asked about her mission, Kristina said, “I wanted to empower my kids to know that they are the co-creators of their own lives and that loving themselves is the key to their happiness.” With the increase in suicides, Kristina wanted to help on a large scale, but she did not know how she would do that. Her mind kept returning to the quote by the Dalai Lama that proved to be the inspiration for Zen Friends: “If every 8 years old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world in one generation.”
