Moshi Twilight App’s New Story for Kids Will Feature Goldie Hawn’s Voice

“Goldie the Mindful Moshling,” a new story on the Moshi Twilight app that helps kids get to sleep peacefully, will be voiced by Hollywood legend Goldie Hawn, Mind Candy announced September 18. Goldie is the newest character in the Moshi world and will take a journey to discover how using mindfulness during the day can lead to sweet dreams at night. Like the app’s other Twilight Sleep Stories, “Goldie the Mindful Moshling” is designed to be read to kids after they’ve already listened to a book and turned out the lights.

Hawn’s voice will help kids imagine the Moshi world, which is full of dreamy locations like Franzipan Farm, Lush Lagoon, and Pawberry Fields, as well as magical themes and quirky characters. “Goldie the Mindful Moshling” is a 30-minute-long, audio-only story. Its plot is rooted in Goldie’s longtime mindfulness advocacy.

“All children in the world are our most precious resource for a happier, healthier tomorrow. They deserve all we can give them to thrive and succeed in this sometimes challenging world,” Hawn said in a press release.

According to Rebecca Robbins, Ph.D., sleep problems are growing among kids–right now, approximately 28 million kids across the country have trouble sleeping every night. Robbins is a leading sleep researcher and co-author of Sleep for Success!

“While we’re all aware that sleep deprivation is common among adults, it’s creeping into our population earlier and earlier. Short sleep duration and behavioral sleep problems among children aged three to five are now at a staggering 20% to 50%, and insomnia is now as high as 20%. This is why the Moshi Twilight app represents a meaningful solution for parents and kids alike.”
