Skeletina is a savvy connoisseur of the In-between World and has trained herself to deal with the spooky-kooky characters and upside-down, inside-out happenings that go on around town.

She has a friendly, slapstick comical relationship with the eclectic grouchy beings that live there.

Skeletina helps the children who visit in their sleep navigate the many odd manifestations their fears and anxieties take, doing so in her own special way—with deadpan humor and relentless pursuit of a solution. For her, it's a game, and every-time she helps a child, she wins!

Facing fears might just be fun! Skeletina helps children understand and develop control over their anxieties and fears, giving them coping mechanisms they can use in their everyday lives. By developing positive relationships and connections, Skeletina helps kids build trust and confidence in the new social-emotional skills they have learned, reinforcing that you can't go through hard moments alone, and it's ok to need—and ask for—help.
