When a loved one passes away, nothing can take the pain away for those left behind. A huge gap is left and while a Huggable Hero cannot replace the person we have lost, they can help keep their memory alive and go some way towards filling the gap. Children especially can feel confused, angry and scared after the death of someone close to them. By introducing a Huggable Hero it can allow them to make sense of their emotions; providing cuddles and comfort at this difficult time.
