Happy Heads Card Game - £1 from every game sold gets donated to Caudwell Children
The Happy Heads Card Game, from Book of Beasties, supports parents and carers to have more meaningful conversations about emotions and improve relationships with their children.
Wellbeing and emotions are heavy topics but important
to talk about. Which is why we lighten the load by taking a playful
approach, empowering anyone to find the confidence to share how they
feel, and discover ways to feel better. But the Happy Heads Card Game brings this magic into the home, helping nurture more happiness in a child’s life. Because a happier kid today, is a happier adult tomorrow.
