To celebrate the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games, bed retailer and Official Sleep Partner of Team GB and ParalympicsGB, Dreams, has announced the launch of a new series of bedtime stories, created in partnership with four of the brand’s Team GB and ParalympicGB ambassadors: Laura Kenny, Jade Jones, Ali Jawad and Jordanne Whiley.
Specially curated to help children up and down the nation dream big during this summer of sport, each story recounts the tale of a different athlete’s path to success and the obstacles they faced along the way.
From problems with bullies and rebellious teenage years, to learning about persistence, and sharing the joy that comes with finding your passion, these heart-warming tales recount how each of the athletes overcame childhood challenges and worked as hard as they could in their younger years, to ultimately achieve their dreams.
Collaborating with Audio Always, children can tune in and listen to each of the stories before bed, by simply searching ‘Bedtime Stories from Dreams’ on all major audio channels, including Spotify and Apple music.
For those who find visuals help their children unwind and drift off to dream-land, animated short films* of each story are also available to watch on YouTube here:
- Laura Kenny’s Olympic Dreams
- Jade Jones’ Olympic Dreams
- Ali Jawad’s Paralympic Dreams
- Jordanne Whiley’s Paralympic Dreams
Consumers can also get their hands on free limited-edition physical copies of all four books from 12th July and throughout the Games season, when they purchase any bed product from Dreams stores across the UK.
This latest Dream Team Bedtime Stories series is a welcome addition to Dreams’ existing children’s story collection. The launch marks a continued effort by the brand to shine a light on the power of sleep not just for adults, but for improving the mental wellbeing of children and young adults too.
