After resigning from teaching due to my severe anxiety and panic attacks, I needed to find purpose again. I wanted to help children manage the overwhelming thoughts and feelings associated with anxiety so I designed the little wuppy® – a sausage dog worry puppy designed as an aid to help ease children’s worries, and to comfort them.

Hi, I’m Linda, the owner + designer of little wuppy®. I am a former primary school teacher and artist from Melbourne.
When a child places the heart of the little wuppy® against their own, they can send their worries to the little wuppy® so they don’t need to worry any more! The little wuppy® was created by combining my love of design, my obsession with sausage dogs, my experience as a primary school teacher, and my personal experience with anxiety
As a sufferer of anxiety and panic attacks, I want to help empower children to manage their worries and seek comfort in times of need.
