Lullaby, and good night, in the skies stars are bright
May the moon, silvery beams, bring you with dreams
Close you eyes, now and rest, may these hours be blessed
Till the sky's bright with dawn, when you wake with a yawn
Lullaby, and good night, you are mother's delight
I'll protect you from harm, and you'll wake in my arms
~ as performed by Jewel/'09 Album Lullaby
Remember when monsters were REAL and things that went bump in the night had fangs and claws? Yeah, it's been a while - now most of the monsters have 2 legs and capped teeth. But my own childhood, what a glorious time to be a kid, when The Boogieman was just about the only thing a good kid really had to worry about!
It's 1982 and Hasbro made those all those horribles of the night disappear, with the debut of their Glo Worm nightlight toy.
For those who are too young to remember and those who've never heard of a Glo Worm, their little heads were made with a special plastic, that allowed them to glow in the dark. They had a plush body (that encased the battery pack) making the Glo Worm the first nightlight that a child could cuddle with as they fell asleep. Told you it was great to be a little kid in the 80's!
This sweet little bug became a staple in many a child's bedroom and those scary monsters lurking in the dark, were no match for Glo Worm’s glowing cuteness.
Well, they say, all thing come back around, and this little bug was the inspiration behind the newest addition to the FiberDoodles by K4TT Pattern Library.
Introducing Snuggle Bug and Blanket.
This sweet little plush is perfect for your toddler to cuddle with on those stormy nights, when the monsters still lurk outside windows - or while just laying in the light and watching television. These vivid colors, although not battery powered, are positively charged with smiles and good feelings. Sold as a set (blanket and bug) or separately (Snuggle Bug single or Snuggle Blanket) this soft little cutie is bound to not only bring back memories, but to help create fond ones as well!
