About CuddleBright® Experience


Our Story

The Simms/Mann Institute is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the health and wellness of children, families, and communities.

Because healthy bonds build healthy brains, we’re committed to providing parents with the information they need to promote positive interactions that enable children to adapt and become more resilient—from infancy through toddlerhood and beyond.

The CuddleBright® Experience is informed by child development theory, years of clinical experience and the latest neuroscience research--to help parents create rituals and routines that will help them and their children develop healthier and more secure emotional connections.

CuddleBright® Cares

100% of CuddleBright's net proceeds support research and education in early childhood development through the nonprofit Simms/Mann Institute.

Additionally, a major focus of our philanthropic effort is to partner with qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit hospitals, health centers, and community-based agencies to empower underserved families with young children.

By providing in-kind contributions of the CuddleBright Experience toolkit, the Simms/Mann Institute offers a no-cost resource for community providers to amplify their existing parent-child programming.

The Simms/Mann Insitute donates thousands of CuddleBrights to children and families each year.
