We have a monster in our house. Luckily, he’s not a very scary one. He comes out usually right after dinner, but right before bedtime. He,… is our tickle monster.

In a deep not-so-scary voice, our Tickle Monster whispers, “I’m gonna GET you, I’m GONNA GET YOU!” It’s really the basic game of chasing and squealing, but oh it does my heart good. My kids try to reach the official ‘safe zone’, but they inevitably get caught by the Tickle Monster and, of course, are TICKLED. Lots. tickle monster book and hands

There are few things better in this world, than kids laughing. The best is when you hear a gut laugh that is so genuine, you know it must hurt their tummy a little.

Then they all BEG to have a turn as the Tickle Monster, but let’s be honest. Daddy does it best.

And once they’re all tuckered out, they usually ask for one of their favorite bedtime stories: The Tickle Monster.

This sweet and simple nightly game, is one of the joys I look forward to every day. I’m sure glad we have a Tickle Monster living at our house. Do you have one living at your home too? I think they are common monsters. ;)

Do you have any fun family games? I highly recommend making tickle time a top priority. You really don’t need any fancy tickle gloves to become a great monster, but you can find the adorably fuzzy kit here. It really would make the perfect gift for Father’s Day. It’s one of those gifts that keeps on giving.

    My babies are 31 and 32! When they were little my husband would come home from work every day, walk in the door and shout, "I'm gonna get some babies!" They would scream and run as fast as they could to jump on our bed. My youngest daughter's little legs were so short she had to be helped onto the bed. They laughed and laughed when he found them and tickled them. thanks for reminding me.
    P.S. I love the tickle book.

    We need a tickle monster because our son has decided it's fun to run away from us at bedtime...this way we'd have a way to catch him without making him so angry at us.

    Jonette says:
    I would love a tickle monster kit to relieve contention at our house. When I get mad and say "That's it, you're gonna get it!" They wonder what they are going to get. Of course they expect a grounding, a phone to be taken away and extra chore or time out. Then I start to run after them and say "I'm gonna tickle you to death." The chase begins. I tickle until we are smiling and giggling. Then we catch our breath and the tension is gone and we can usually get back on track with what we need to do or talk about. It defuses anger and frustration and it works on all 4 of my kids age 19 to 3. But truthfully our family needs to see the tickle monster a little more often and with this kit, maybe the kids wouldn't mind being the tickle monster too. That way they can resolve their disputes with each other.

    You ladies bring inspiration to us all. You do a great job. Keep it coming!

    We have a tickle monster at our house too! He grabs a kid by his leg, pull them in and attacks! Then the others run squeeling & trying to distract the monster while the nabbed one sneaks away. This would put one more element of fun into this precious Daddy/Kid time. Heaven knows there isn't enough of it :)

    We need a tickle monster at our house to help my boys have sweet dreams. My 6 year old has been having bad dreams... not sure why. I think that the tickle monster will make him happy enough to drift off to sleep with a smile.

    We need a tickle monster kit at our house because bed time could use a fun routine. The kids don't like going to bed and if they had something to look forward to.. I think it would help them be more motivated. My hubs is the best around and would make one hot monster!!!

    This book is the cutest. My husband and I have seen it a couple of times and laughed at the idea of using it but we always talk ourselves out of it. This book would bring smiles to my husband and our family.

    My nephew passed away recently, leaving behind a 1 1/2 year old daughter. He loved and adored his daughter. It would be a sweet way to remember their special relationship if we could share the Tickle Monster Laughter Kit with her.

    I love this book! We love to tickle in our house... we have a new addition who is now 8 months old and squeals in delight when anyone tickles him. I know that the fuzzy gloves would be a huge hit with his siblings when it is their turn to 'get' him or be gotten themselves. Thanks for being awesome!

    I would love to put these in our tickle monsters stash so when ever he comes out... We could try and catch him first! It's so much fun to see there is a book too. We would have so much fun.

    What a great way to have reading time incorporated in with tickle time. We usually get a little riled up after our tickle monster comes to visit;-) the book looks like a perfect supplement to calming our girls down!!!

    We have this book and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! I have never seen the little tickle gloves, however. Those would be SO FUN to have! My husband is leaving for a year-long deployment the first week of July, so we are looking for something extra special to give him for Father's Day this year. I was going to have the kids each pick their favorite book to give him, so he will have a copy and they will have a copy, and he can read them stories via Skype. This would be an awesome book to give him! And the gloves would be SO MUCH FUN!!!!!! If we don't win a kit, we will definitely be buying one for him for Father's Day! (kids ages 5, 4, 1, and #4 on the way)

    I have two daughter's (2 and 3 months). The 2 year old has been acting up at bedtime, not wanting to cooperate and get dressed ever since her sister has come along. This would be a fun way to encourage her to get dressed and brush her teeth. We need this and would cherish it for years to come! What fun memories for kids!

    We would love a tickle monster kit! My kids 3 and 1 absolutely love to be tickled and find it even more hysterical when their daddy tickles me ( I hate being tickled!!). They even try to tickle me and their dad will pin me down for them, so if they had the tickle kit they would probably want to be even more independent and chase me around the house all on their own!

    I have never seen this or heard of this book. Thank you for the introduction and a fantastic giveway. My little boys love it when daddy sneaks up and starts saying I am gonna get you. Our three year old starts laughing and running away, our 17 month old has started to imitate his big brother.

    This would be an amazing gift to win! My husband would make the best tickle monster. This is his 1st fathers day and we are already planning to have baby #2 around this time next year. He was made to be a daddy and now I know he was also made to be a tickle monster!

    LaShelle says:
    This is ADORABLE! I love it! We have a tickle monster at our house, but I didn't even know there was a story (or the cute gloves). I would absolutely LOVE to give this to our tickle monster for Father's Day! It would especially be perfect because we have baby #2 coming in a few weeks and it would be something that our oldest little girl and dad can share without it having to be about the new baby.
  150. May 30th, 2012 at 8:38 pm
    Elle S. says:
    How cute & fun is that!!! It usually takes a lot to get my little girl laughing, so I think this would be a fun way to try to get those giggles out :)

    Karrie Jayo says:
    I would love to have a Tickle Monster kit in our home. When our three children were little, my husband would become the "Tickle Monster" (said with a loud, slightly scary, fun voice with hands formed into monster claws) and chase the kids around the house, too. They loved it. Now that they are all grown and are parents themselves, Grandad entertains our three adorable granddaughters with the Tickle Monster. I agree with you, there is no sweeter sound than children giggling with that good ol' belly laughter! Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these kits. Karrie

    Robin Phillips-Knotts says:

    Brandy H says:
    Oh my goodness, what fun this set would be. We have 4 little ones and the day is just not complete without a round of "Tickle Torture!" Sometimes it's one on one and sometimes it's all 6 of us involved. It would be great to make just one person the tickle monster and there would be little room for confusion if said Tickle Monster had tickle hands!!
  154. May 30th, 2012 at 8:43 pm
    Jennifer Brown says:
    This would be so fun for my husband to be able to do with our two kidddos when he gets home, they always want to hang out/play with him the second he comes in, would be great for before dinner. I know the kids would love it....and my husband too.
  155. May 30th, 2012 at 8:44 pm
    Kim says:
    What a fantastic gift. There is nothing my daughter (14 months) loves more than the tickle monster. I'm fairly certain her laughter can cure all things. Great idea for father's day!

    Denise says:
    What a wonderful idea! The photos are just absolutely beautiful -they made me smile. My little ones are 6, 3 and 5 months old and LOVE when their daddy tickles them until they cry. Since daddy works crazy hours he doesn't get a lot of time to spend with the kiddos so he has to make the best of what he does get. This would be a wonderful gift for Father's Day for daddy & the kids! Thanks for offering this giveaway!

    I would be thrilled to win one of these kits as my daughter has given these kits away as gifts and now she is pregnant with their first child. She would love it! Thank you for the chance to win!

    I would love to give this to my husband for father's day. It's his first one as a daddy and he loves to play with his little guy getting him to dance and tickling him trying to get him to giggle. Our little guy has only given up his giggles twice (for grandma...luckily we were there!). Despite our best efforts my husband and I only get squeals of delight. The tickle monster may be just what we need to get him giggling all the time. Is there anything better in the world than hearing the sound of your precious angel laughing? I think not! Thanks for considering us!

    I would love to win this for my kids we always tickle them and love to hear them laugh. They are the perfect age as we love to read books and pretend there are tickle bugs on them!

    My girls definitely need more tickle monster time. Since reading the post, we have started having tickle time more often, but this set would make it so much more fun for them, and more fun for Daddy too!

    Kristen says:
    We play the "magic key" game when my kids lock me up by wrapping their arms around my neck. I get our my pointer finger, or the "magic key" and it always unlocks their arms. the tickle monster would be a great addition to our tickling fun!

    I want a TICKLE MONSTER kit so that my husband, myself and our precious adopted China doll can LAUGH our heads off at night. After bible reading, she gets to pick out a "fun" book. How fun would it be to end the day in laughter....for all of us. To put aside the stresses of this world and just giggle.

    Michelle says:
    Okay, so maybe I'm a little hormonal as I am currently pregnant, but I kid you not that I teared up at the joy that this kit would give my husband (nevermind the fun for our child). For a man that is so over-the-moon about being a father every day (seriously, I think he was more excited when we first became pregnant than I was), this would be a fantastic "gift that keeps on giving." What a phenomenal idea!!
  229. June 4th, 2012 at 3:21 pm
    Samantha O. says:
    This is the greatest idea. We always play the tickle game, but this would make it sooooo much better.

    Whitney S. says:
    My boys would absolutely love this! They beg their Daddy for tickles all the time! I bet it would become a favorite in no time! I have heard the book is great and I need a few new ones in our library to get my boys excited to read again!

    What a great idea! I have been stumped for Father's Day gifts this year...with a new addition in our home, my brain is fried. This would be a great way for Daddy to give attention to our toddler and give Daddy something practical and fun--hard to fill both those needs.

    I remember the Tickle Monster visiting our home when I was little. And it came back to visit when our boys were little. Now our boys are grown (20 and 21) so we will wait (gladly) until the Tickle Monster returns to visit our home again.

    Rhee Jones says:
    I really need a tickle kit for my wonderful son-in-law, Max. Our daughter, Finn, and Max are expecting their first child due on July 8th. Ohh and we just found out its a girl!!

    I think it's so important for traditions to be made early in a child's life and why not start when it's first born with reading to her nightly. I KNOW Max is going to make a wonderful father to their little girl and having his first Father's Day right before she is born (we hope) is really special.

    Max and their daughter already "play" together. Yes, you heard me correctly, they play together. Max started doing "raspberries" on Finn's tummy and she in turn kicks Max away. Hahaha we're not sure if Finn considers it much fun but now when she hears her Daddy's voice she begins kicking. I believe this bond began before she shows herself will continue throughout her life.

    We all know how girls need their Daddy's and having the Tickle Monster kit is going to keep their fun time of bonding going and this time Finn won't get 'caught in the middle'.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity to brag on our fantastic daughter and her wonderful husband. It's my favorite subject!! Well, at least until our first grand baby is born!

    well my husband reads with our little girl but he is not really very good at making silly sounds and all. So i guess this is "as easy as it gets" kind of thing. Hoping to have more giggles before sleep time at our home with this.

    I am a divorced mama of 3. My ex-husband is a 36 days a year, by choice, kind of dad. Taking on both roles of mother and father is very difficult, but can also be very rewarding. I would love this for me to use! It would be such a fun and loving time together with my kids who don't get that kind of interaction from their dad. It is something that we could save and pass down to the next generation. I love it!

    I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it
    just me or does it look as if like some of these remarks come across like they
    are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at
    additional sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Would you post a list of all of your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
