Give the gift of a smile.

When visiting a child you care about, it’s hard to strike a balance between showing the family you care and giving them the space they need. Take comfort in knowing that our Feel Better Kits were crafted by a mom who spent months alongside her own child in the hospital setting. Dedicated to bringing joy to sick kids, she developed the line in consultation with child life specialists and therapists specifically for children fighting or recovering from an illness in the hospital or at home, so you can count on them to come from a place of sensitivity and caring. Our promise.

"We've been there and we get it."
