Esme & Roy
Esme and Roy are best friends — and the best monstersitters in Monsterdale! The new animated series from the makers of Sesame Street will bring little viewers along into a colorful world where even the littlest monsters can overcome big challenges together.
Monstersitters Esme and Roy use the power of play to help younger monsters through familiar situations, including trying new foods and feeling scared during loud thunderstorms. Little viewers will discover positive role models, and learn how to manage their emotions with simple mindfulness practices. Read More

A glitter jar, which is a jar filled with colored water and glitter, is one of Esme and Roy’s favorite calm-down activities. You shake it up, and then watch the glitter fall to the bottom, and it calms you down.
Another strategy is self-talk. In one episode, a little monster gets frightened by the lightning, so he tells himself a mantra, “I am brave. I am brave. I am brave.”
The little monsters also practice belly breathing, where they put their hands on their bellies and take a deep breath in, and then hold it, and then take a breath out.
“Play is an effective way to problem-solve.”
