We gave a Confidence Cobble to each member of the elderly audience and Jean was so thrilled with hers (@shortstorytheatre).

I purchased two of your Cobbles for my sons. I just wanted to say how lovely they are.  My oldest boy will be starting his exams this year and he put a post on Twitter showing off his Cobble.  My other son is starting secondary school today and has taken his in his blazer pocket all charged up with love from me and Dad. Thank you again for creating such a fantastic product. I did recommend you to two of my friends who purchased from you also x

We gave one to our neighbour's son. Apparently, he loves it and has called it 'Rocky'.  It lives in his pocket...whatever he is wearing!

Worked splendidly today when I had to read the names at church for Remembrance Sunday.    

I took my Confidence Cobble to work today and I really did feel better. 

A timely gift.  Made me feel much better in my sad situation.

I really, really love these and am thinking of them as presents for our Year 6 when they leave.   

Wasn't sure who liked them better - my pupils or me! 

I am going to keep mine forever and pass it onto my grandchildren.  

I can recommend these as a little, discreet, confidence booster. 

My daughter has been shy and reluctant about going to school. With her Confidence Cobble in her pocket, she goes in happily each morning.

This pupil held the Confidence Cobble in her hand and managed to give her speech to 250 fellow pupils and 20 staff.

She has agoraphobia and has hardly been outside for ages.  Now she wears the Confidence Cobble as a necklace and we see her around the village all the time.

Grandma would not go into hospital for her operation but when they said she could have the Confidence Cobble in the theatre, she agreed to let them do the operation.

My son won't admit it, but I know he borrowed my Confidence Cobble for his driving test - and he passed!

I love the cobbles. Thank you so much for including us in your research. We have a Thrive room in school and use transition objects with the children as a way of supporting them when they leave the room and are back in the classroom. The teachers are absolutely enthused about using the cobbles for this purpose. We are also going to take one to a child in her home who is refusing to come into school. This will let her know we are thinking of her and missing her being here. I think this is definitely a winner and with the Mental Health agenda so prominent at the moment we are all looking for ways to support children and just as needy parents.


I keep one in my pocket too. We all have tricky situations to face-like dealing with a difficult parent, talking to a room full of colleagues at a conference or helping a child through a difficult situation you know you’d find difficult to cope with yourself. I have given them to teachers in other schools to try too. On Friday, the year 6 children found out their next schools. As I asked each one where they had been allocated, I gave them a confidence cobble so that they knew, whether it was their first choice or not, we would be there to support and help and listen through the next transition. The test certainly comes when the children come and see me with their own suggestions -like they bring their confidence cobble to their SATs exams. We’ve just performed a brass ensemble at Cheltenham Town Hall. I held up the confidence cobble to the 60 children performing on stage to reassure them all would go well. It’s become our little secret code - I know how you feel - it says. This is at a time when it is needed most - when parents are keeping their children off school if there is something in the school day that makes them really nervous. Together, we can help them face these challenges and make them proud that they do so.
