The Sleepy Bear Club® is a children’s bedtime story and lifestyle brand. Founded on the principles of play well, nap well, Sleepy Bears know the secret to life lies within earning nap time.



Club Credo


Members of The Sleepy Bear Club believe fitness is an essential quality for developing a strong sense of self. They know being healthy is a habit and each person must earn it for themselves.

Sleepy Bears understand that nap time is their friend. In fact, they own it! Like riding a bike is a skill, so is napping. The key to mastering the art of the nap is to improve at exercise!

Play time is just as sacred as nap time and the relationship between the two is symbiotic. The better you exercise, the better you sleep; the better you sleep, the more energy you have to play.

Sleepy Bears always have time for club meetings. (Also known as nap time.) They make time to do what is important to stay fit. They play outside and fall asleep by dreaming about their adventures. 

Founded on the principles of play well, nap well, Sleepy Bears know the secret to life lies within earning nap time.



Club Principles


Play Well

Earn your nap time! Recess. Workout. Run around the block. Play time definition is up to you. Whether it is unstructured free play or organized exercise, find ways to develop strength, endurance, and flexibility. Climb a tree or lift weights. Run a trail or go for a swim. Touch your toes or reach for the sky. Be fun. Be free. Be fit.


Nap Well

Start your meeting! Have the designated President recite the club commencement. Then read your book of choice or describe your adventure of the day. Say, 'I Love You'. Rest your head, close your eyes, and daydream about your stories until you fall asleep.


Club Commencement

This meeting’s called to order now here’s what we’re gonna do,
We’ll rest our heads and close our eyes to take a little snooze.
I know our energy abounds so this is what we’ll choose,
We’ll let our brains create the play and dream of how we move.
— The Sleepy Bear Club

Plan Well

When it comes to a healthy lifestyle, a little planning and practice go a long way. With 24 hours in a day, how you use that time depends on which 'Bear' you are.
