We all know how important social and emotional intelligence is in a young child’s development. Kimochis…toys with feelings inside, were created to assist in the development of social and emotional intelligence, child-parent communication and help in building self-esteem in children. With an already strong following, even celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Garner can’t resist!
Kimochi (KEY.MO.CHEE) means “feeling” in Japanese and each 13 inch Kimochis character comes with 3 plush “feelings” and a how-to- Feel Guide with tips for parents on connecting with their kids during emotional moments. Feelings can be messy…Kimochis can help!
Using the characters and their Kimochis , kids can get in touch with their emotions through puppetry and play. And the accompanying Feel Guide introduces the fun and quirky personalities of each character that everyone can identify with! Purchases can be made at www.kimochis.com. Characters retail for $25 and Mixed Feelings Pack retail for $12.00.

My daughter is four and in preschool they are learning about feelings, what they mean, how to express feelings and what is ok behavior at school. What I love about Kimochis’ is that it’s a great toy to play with and Sarah is able to learn about the different feelings we have, and how everyone has feelings.
