Building Connections

Meet Otter

Otter is loving and kind—and promotes a journey full of building connections and holding loved ones in your heart, even when they’re far away. Little ones dealing with distance, separation, family transitions, and other connection-related challenges will benefit from learning alongside Otter and repeating Otter’s affirmation.


Otter helps your child feel connected to the ones they love

  • Separation anxiety
  • Foster families
  • Divorce

I am connected and loved even if we are far apart. I'll keep you with me held here in my heart.

— Otter's Affirmation

The Slumberkins Otter Bundle comes with an Otter plush (either the Otter stuffed animal Kin plush or the blanket style Snuggler plush), an affirmation card, and two Otter books about connection. Our Otter collection has many other combinations and options, too, from a bigger, classroom-friendly version of the book Otter’s Community Grows: A Lesson in Building Connections to a set of matching plush Connection Hearts to share with a loved one near or far.

Snuggle up with your little one (and Otter, of course) to read Otter’s books on connection aloud. The time spent together will help foster a secure connection between you—a connection that will remain strong even during times of separation. When kids are feeling lonely or upset, they can cuddle their very own Otter and remember that they’re forever in your heart (just like you’re forever in theirs).

Children depend upon the adults in their lives for just about everything. All of our toys and stories are designed by experts to teach social-emotional learning skills, so you can rest assured that you’re helping the kids you care for develop strong emotional foundations and build important bonds when you introduce them to Otter. 

We understand the stress that comes along with being separated from the people you love. Otter understands, too, and is ready to help you and your child interact, connect, and reflect on the way you’re feeling—together.
