Omi the elephant is an interactive friend that teaches kids mindful breathing, emotional regulation skills & positive thinking.
Simply listen to Omi's soothing voice as he guides you through a mindful breathing exercise and helps kids feel calm.
Awareness of the breath is the most BASIC and valuable mindfulness technique.
With Omi’s help, a child learns this skill easily and begins to understand how to self regulate their thoughts and feelings.
Simply push Omi's paws to hear one of 4 guided exercises.
Daily RESET //Omi's Right Hand: this guided meditation can be used daily to help foster a healthy mindful habit. Omi helps you identify your emotion and then, take a moment to STOP,BREATHE & RESET.
Sad or Mad RESET//Omi's Left Hand: this guided breathing exercise helps you let go of any negative thoughts by teaching kids to "blow out" their bad feelings.
30 SECOND RESET//OMi's Right Foot: sometimes we are just to busy in our day, but that's when bite-sized mindfulness is most important! Omi invites kids to re-center by saying "let's breathe together" and guides them to enjoy 3 deep breaths.
CALM MUSIC//Omi's Left Foot: this setting helps soothe children when they need a moment to feel calm and relaxed. No instructions needed.
The name Omi comes from the word ‘Om’.
When ‘om’ is repeated during yoga or mindful practices, it is believed to have a calming effect on the body and nervous system.

Super calming. My son loves this.
My son, 9, has anxiety and ADHD, and this elephant is his new comfort toy. He has used him several times when needing to self-regulate and loves the comfort it brings (he's a sensitive guy). We love this SO much, I had to get Jane the Koala for his sister. She's needing more confidence-building and so the positive affirmations idea is great. Also, glad we have two different ones so they feel unique to each child. :) OH, and can I just say customer service went out of their way to make sure my son had his elephant on his birthday!!!!!! The elephant was on backorder, and they found one they had on hand to make sure he got it in time. Just WOW. It was wrapped in the ribbon, and the presentation of the doll was enough to wrap and gift.
The elephant is REALLY REALLY loud, even when turned all of the way down, the music is too loud for my child to play while she is in be trying to go to sleep.
My 9 year old daughter loves her Omi. She uses it at bedtime and whenever she just needs a little pick up. Two complaints however, it took FOREVER to get here, at least 6 weeks. Also the place in the back where the power switch goes in does not close properly. The switch box itself doesn’t fit in right and it’s difficult and awkward to try and do so.
I think my granddaughter will enjoy it
