Worry Eaters is a plush toy. It is intended to comfort a child. The design of the toy, which incorporates a zipper at the mouth, allows a child to insert into the mouth slips of paper bearing words that might describe a worry or a concern of the child. The child places the worry in the mouth of the toy and the worry is “gone”, the toy “eats” the child’s worries.
