Lil’ Woo Doos is a series of plushy and huggable monster companions designed to help young patients and their parents maintain the innate parent child relationship that may be compromised from separation anxiety during long, confining hospital stays. Lil’ Woo Doos is a step toward expanding the availability of toys to children in hospitals. Due to hospital regulations, the availability of plush toys to patients has been restricted to new and mass produced toys. Lil’ Woo Doos invites imagination and provides essential therapy methods in the form of a unique and lovable companions.
