Self Acceptance

Meet Yak

Meet Yak, a fuzzy new friend and member of the Slumberkins Confidence Crew. Yak is here to remind us we don’t need to be perfect to be worthy of love. Self-acceptance teaches kids it’s okay to make mistakes, empowering them to try new things, overcome challenges, and take risks.


Yak helps your child overcome feelings of self-doubt

  • Perfectionist tendencies
  • Failing forward
  • Perseverance

I am loved as I am. When things get tough, I go back to my heart. I know I am enough.

— Yak's Affirmation

The Slumberkins Yak bundle comes with a Yak plush (either the plush stuffed Yak Kin or the blanket-style Yak Snuggler), an affirmation card, and two books on self-acceptance (starring Yak, of course).

Available as a board book, Yak, You are Good Enough introduces children to the concept of self-acceptance, and reassures them that they don’t need to change themselves to be loved and respected. Book two, Yak Struggles with Mistakes, comes as a board book or a big book for classroom settings. In this captivating story, Yak learns that it’s okay not to be perfect—mistakes are a natural, necessary part of growth. Both books feature sweet illustrations and engaging, affirmative language. Learning important lessons has never been more fun.

Continue the journey with Yak and friends like Bigfoot, Unicorn, Narwhal, and Hammerhead in The Confidence Within, a hardcover book that explores inner wisdom and self-worth. The accompanying playset will delight kids and inspire them to act out the story again and again with their Kin Minis and cozy Star Pillow.

All of Slumberkins' books and plush toys are specially designed to teach social-emotional learning skills and build secure connections between children and their caregivers. When you and your child cuddle up together to read a Slumberkins story, you create a safe space to process emotions and connect.  With Yak as your guide, you can tackle big feelings together and instill children with a deep sense of self-worth that will stay with them as they learn and grow. 

Whether you’re rounding out your child’s bookshelf with Slumberkins self-acceptance books or gifting them a soon-to-be-cherished Yak stuffed animal, our Yak collection has everything you need to celebrate perseverance and self-respect.
