A Bouncy Party Excerpt:

The little bouncy house watched the balloons twirling in the breeze by the mailbox, as the cars arrived.  Kids skipped up to the door of the house and pointed at him excitedly.  The little house smiled, ready to play his part in the happy birthday.  A dad walked over to Bobo, double-checking that he was secured to the ground, and everything was set up.  Five kids ran out the door and began jostling for the first place in line, when the dad said, “OK first we’ll line up by height.  Smallest to tallest, I bet you can figure it out.  But I’ll help if you need me.”

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

Tricycle Trade: a mindful bedtime story

Tricycle Trade: a mindful bedtime story

Trudy the tricycle eagerly waits to play as she welcomes a new bicycle. When the garage opens she realizes, it’s time for a tricycle trade.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Robot Build” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Tricycle Trade,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:41

Narrator: Female

Tricycle Trade Excerpt:

The little red tricycle slept peacefully in the garage.  Slivers of sunshine snuck through the cracks of the large door.  Then the door rumbled and rose.  Trudy the tricycle relaxed in the warmth of the sunlight.   Then something rolled past her.  It was a bicycle, with a bright purple bow on it, looking a little bit nervous.  The little tricycle remembered how she felt when she first arrived in the garage, and so she decided to be the first to welcome the bicycle.

“Hi! I’m Trudy.”  She said.

“I’m Bing. Is this your garage?”  The bicycle said.

“Oh, no. I just park here.  I help the little girl roll down the driveway safely.  Judging from that bow on your handlebars, I’m sure we’ll find out who you will be helping pretty soon.

Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

Toy Repair Shop: a short story and meditation for kids

Toy Repair Shop: a short story and meditation for kids

Uli the unicorn and Alyssa the doll set up a toy repair shop while the kids go to school. Listen in to hear what toys stop by.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:26

Narrator: Female

Toy Repair Shop Excerpt:

With a whiney, the gentle unicorn encouraged Alyssa to join him for another escapade. Alyssa shook her head and said, “I can’t play today. A lot of toys need my help.”

Uli quickly leaped into the toy box. “Can I help?” the unicorn asked.

Alyssa smiled a bit broader and replied, “That would be great! The race cars need new wheels; Teddy needs to be stitched up; and the blocks need some paint.”

The sparkling unicorn returned her smile as he said. “Ok, we better get going.”

“I knew you’d help.” Alyssa said. “Let’s start with the race cars.” She hopped out of the toy box carrying several new wheels. The doll rolled two wheels over to Uli as three race cars hobbled over.  Then Alyssa addressed the cars saying, “Let’s get these new wheels on so you can get back to racing.”

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

Dragon Castle: a bedtime meditation and story

Dragon Castle: a bedtime meditation and story

It’s time for a return visit to the beach. Dragon notices Paula Penguin needs a new home and makes her a dragon castle, with a little help from Benji the bucket.

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new stories “Park Picnic” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Dragon Castle,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:13

Narrator: Female

Dragon Castle Excerpt:

Scanning the warm stretch of sand to see if anyone was there, the careful dragon landed.  Squishy warm sand hugged the dragon’s feet.  The dragon walked slowly, looking for Benji the bucket.  Noticing a bit of blue sticking out of the sand, the dragon hurried over and pulled Benji out.

“Oh good you’re back.”  The bucket said.  “I can show you how to make a sand castle.”

The dragon smiled wide and nodded.

“Ok, you need sand, water, and me.”  The bucket said smiling.   “Carry me over to the water.  We’ll get that first.”

Again the dragon nodded, and carried Benji down to the waves.  The water rolled in and out, splashing and tickling the dragon’s feet with sea foam.  The dragon dipped the bucket into the water and filled Benji to the brim.  He carried Benji to a cozy spot in the sun and poured the water onto the sand.

Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

Special Day: a soothing kid’s story when you need a break

Blanka the plush bunny waits patiently to be discovered inside the colorful present. The rainbow paper starts to crinkle. How will everyone react?

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:41

Narrator: Male

Special Day Excerpt:

Blanka adjusted her sparkling blue ribbon and put on her best smile. She was ready! The plush bunny eagerly looked upward. As more and more light spilled into the gift box the white tissue paper began to glow. She heard rustling as the tissue paper was shuffled around. Blanka felt a giggle bubbling up from her belly as the paper fluttered around her. A gentle beam of sunshine poured through the parted tissue paper, causing Blanka’s blue ribbon to twinkle. The little bunny heard a gasp and smiled as she was lifted out of the gift box.

Teddy Bear Bounce: a bedtime story and meditation

Teddy Bear Bounce: a bedtime story and meditation

In Teddy Bear Bounce, Takoda the teddy bear celebrates a birthday. In all the excitement he is left in a bouncy castle. Will he be found in time for cake?

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Snowed Statues” this week. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Teddy Bear Bounce,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:29

Narrator: Male

Teddy Bear Bounce Excerpt:

The snuggly teddy bear relaxed on the cozy bed, waiting for his boy.  Takoda listened carefully.  New and different sounds drifted up the stairs and into the room.  The little teddy bear wondered what was going on.  Just then the little boy burst into the room exclaiming “Come on Takoda! You’ve got to see this!” and just like that he whisked the teddy bear off of the bed. Takoda watched carefully for the source of so much excitement.

As he reached the downstairs, the teddy bear saw brightly colored balloons of every color, a cake, and there was something new outside too.  The little bear was unsure of what that was. Takoda smiled as he realized that today was the boy’s birthday.  No wonder he was so excited.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.
