Each year, more and more children feel the effects of being separated from a loved due to working commitments, none more so than the children of armed forces families.
The Memory Badge Spaceman knows how it feels to be apart from loved ones as his people had to leave their planet and are now scattered all over the Universe. Each person was given a Memory Badge Filled with Love before they left the planet and if they feel sad or lonely, they touch the badge and it reminds them that someone is thinking of them and that makes them smile.
This simple message is presented to children in the form of a story book and self-assembly badge pack. The memory badge can contain a picture, drawing or message and children can take it with them wherever they go. If they feel lonely they can look at the picture and remember that the person they are missing is always thinking about them and it makes them smile.
The inexpensive little packs have been tried out successfully by some armed forces families where a parent or relative has been on active service in Afghanistan and one soldier wrote, “My little boy loves his memory badge and takes it with him wherever he goes. Who would have thought such a simple idea could bring so much meaning to a child’s life?”
