Kimochis® … toys with feelings inside
Kimochi, which means ‘feeling’ in Japanese, are plush, loveable toys, designed to help children get in touch with and manage their feelings in a fun, comfortable way. Kimochis® characters have their own unique personalities, and a whole lot of feelings, just like children in any group gathering.
Kimochis®help children identify and express emotions, one feeling at a time, while parents are better able to understand what their kids are trying to communicate.  Being able to talk about feelings helps build confidence, self-esteem and character.
Kimochis®are small soft pillows that come inside cuddly characters, Cloud, Huggtopus, Cat and Bug, who have feelings just like kids. Designed as non-gender specific and multicultural, they help promote strong parent-child connections.
Understanding Feelings
Each character has a special pouch in front into which ‘feelings’ are placed. EachKimochis® pillow has a facial expression that represents an emotion on one side, and on the other, the name of that emotion. These emotions range from angry, jealous, hurt, left out, frustrated, sad, to happy, friendly, kind, brave, silly, loved etc. There are 24 emotional cushions available.
Each Kimochis® character comes in its own box with three feelings (which vary per character) and a detailed Feel Guide - an instructional booklet. The booklet provides fun, easy lessons and activities for moms and dads.
Parents, use the characters and their Kimochis® to help their kids get in touch with their emotions in a fun way using puppetry, play, role play, etc. Together they learn to recognize ‘feelings patterns’ and situations that trigger emotional reactions. They are shown how to use positive words, gestures and signals, to help a child know what to say or do, when feelings arise.
There are three additional Mixed Feelings packs. Each has five different feelings, including a blank ‘make your own feeling’, with a washable pen.
