What’s your favourite toy?

“If you don’t know who this little monster is, his name is Sulley from the movie Monsters, Inc. I love this fuzzy guy because he’s really dynamic. You can’t tell from the photo but he talks, laughs and roars depending on how you shake, squeeze and tickle him. He can help break the ice for kids who are feeling shy and he loves a big strong hug for the kids who are hands on and active.

Kids work best when they are relaxed, having fun, and interested. Sulley’s unique mix of humour, scariness and cuteness helps inspire all of the above!”
