Monster Defense is a line of products intended to help cure children's fear.  Monster Defense provides security to children with fear as well as provides parents an easy and fun solution to getting rid of monsters.  We believe the "monster in the closet" is truly our first opportunity to teach our children to overcome their fears, empowering them & giving them the confidence to meet challenges head-on.  As many other parents have already found, arming your child with these simple tools gives them the little bridge they need to feel comfortable alone at night.

Founders, Matt and Whitney Hardesty, are parents to a boy (born in 2011) and a girl (born in 2013), and reside in Lincoln, NE.  They love hanging out with their friends and family and all the kids in their lives.  Monster Defense all started when their nephew told them about the monsters in his room that kept him up at night. From that day on, Whitney couldn't stop thinking about all the children & parents she could help with a real monster spray.  Matt then got involved and helped Whitney bring it all together.

Matt partnered with Illustrator Jason Hawkins to write the children's book, Monsters Beware!, which was released in June of 2014, and is available on our website, through our retailers, and on iTunes and Amazon.  Monsters Beware!  is a dark & delightful story of one child's solution when his imaginary monster becomes very real.  With help from his mother, and armed with a bottle of Monster Defense Brave Spray, the boy learns to address his fears and rids his room of monsters forever, so he (and his parents) can sleep better at night.
