We would like to share with you the Walli-Kids products which are on their way to becoming a child life specialists’ best friend.
The medical environment is not where a kid would like to be and yet… for so many it could be a long-lived stay, a transition or for most of them a brief stop, but nonetheless it will always be an intimidating source of stress and anxiety.
Kids need to remain kids in any situation. How can we help them sail through the hospital hardship?
Young patients are very sensitive to their environment, it should be colorful and playful because, after all, laughter is the best sound to hear in medical surroundings. We believe that hospitals decoration is often rich and tasteful but not always to the children’s register.
Take a look at our colorful, playful and detailed oriented wall decoration…
When creating our designs, we always keep in mind that vivid colors are vital in a child’s universe and also that art is a proven morale and recovery booster in a medical environment.
Everything in our wall art helps a kid step into another surrounding…
Can he or she help Myrtle the Turtle find her friends?
With the child life specialist’s help and attention, a kid will smile again and for a while forget the “misfortune”.
Our numerous designs are reverse printed on a 1/8 inch thick clear acrylic material for a sharp, colorful and durable product.
Every child life specialist who shares a child’s world knows the importance of playful activities and how to help a child focus on any of them.
In any situation where stress, anxiety and pain are likely, our activity posters can help:
- Change a child’s attitude in a positive way
- Offer the child life specialist a canvas for questions, make believe stories…
- Initiate an easy communication between the child and nurses, doctors, caregivers
- As the child is busy spying the artwork, the caregiver’s task is easier and quicker.
