Q: When is having Mixed Emotions a Good Thing?
A: When they are the super-cute kind that comes inside a Kimochi.
What is a Kimochi you ask? Kimochis are soft, cuddly, stuffed toys that come in a variety of shapes, with a surprise inside–a set of three “feelings” in the form of stuffed little guys, each
one with a facial expression that’s identified by an emotion (happy, jealous, shy, grateful) on its back.
With a background in children’s therapy, I can tell you that Kimochis
offer almost limitless possibilities for instructional play on the
topic of feelings–which is another way to say, Learn about feelings!
Have fun! No lectures! And kids like them too. -Tina
