From the snow-capped mountains of Scandinavia comes the small-yet-mighty Astraphobe.
Yes, he may have an unreasonable fear of thunder, but he makes up for it other ways.
He has Super Snuggle Power – which means, when you cuddle with this little monster during a thunderstorm, he eats up all of your worries.
Those startling claps and bolts become a light show not more frightening than the Aurora Borealis.
He proudly wears the thundercloud on his back to symbolize his special power.
It is rumored that the Astraphobe was once a close friend of the Norse Deity Thor, God of Thunder and many other things.
Did you know that Thursday is actually Thors’s-day? True!
A Stormy Haiku:
When storm clouds draw near,
Cuddle me close and I will
Eat up all your fear!
