Introducing Remi, as featured in The Lost Wish Book, an enchanting and magical story set in the mystical Elfland where friendly elves, dangerous dragons, flying pixies and talking rats all live alongside eachother.

Remi is Elfland’s very own Sleepy Elf, keeper of the grand sleep secret! As such, Remi has a very important role to play, helping children everywhere relax, rest, reset and experience a blissful and re-energising nights sleep.

Remi has been designed to help children, through the power of their imagination to reconnect with the world around them, using the healing power of kindness, mindfulness and nature to simultaneously relax but also recharge over-stimulated bodies and minds.

The importance
of sleep

Good quality and quantity of sleep is crucial, especially for children. Without adequate sleep, it has been proven that kids’ mental health can be significantly and detrimentally affected. This is particularly true if not enough REM sleep is achieved.

This is the time when the body and brain can relax, slow down and recover from the activities and excitement of the day. REM sleep helps to reduce the possibility of anxiety, depression and behavioural issues linked to attention deficit, lack of alertness and changes in mood. Conversely, a good amount of REM sleep can help boost resiliency if mental struggles do come about during the course of the day.

What is
REM Sleep?

The name for Remi the Sleepy Elf is inspired by REM sleep, the stage of sleep where the mind is re-energised and vivid dreams frequently occur.

REM sleep is incredibly important, especially for children, as it has benefits for memory, learning as well as problem-solving.

To further encourage sleep, we have created a Sleepy Elf meditation which teaches children how to breathe and deeply relax and to tap into the recesses of their mind and imagination to unlock the power of consistent and improved sleep.

Sleepy Elf

Developed exclusively for Sensory Retreats by Natalie Samuel, the Sleepy Elf meditation is part of the Elfland UK and Sensory Retreats range of wellbeing products created specifically for children.

Designed as a dreamy visualisation, this meditation takes little elves on their own relaxing journey as they are encouraged, via the gentle lull of Natalie’s voice and clear step by step instructions, to follow Remi the Sleep Elf and discover the secret to the best night’s sleep.

On this guided visualisation Remi takes the listener on a magical tour of the enchanted Elfland, as your child drifts off into deep, restful and refreshing sleep.

“There are 5 key stages of sleep which the body goes through every night, each one lasting for 90-minutes with the cycle repeated 4-5 times per night. The fifth stage, REM (short for rapid eye movement) is the sleep stage when dreams occur.”
