kimochishiresgroupshotKimochis (pronounced KEY-MO-CHEE) first caught my eye at our local toy store, Ambassador Toys in Palo Alto. Their cute packaging and adorable faces made me want to open the box and hug them!  Apparently Brandon felt the same way, because as soon as we received ours in the mail, Brandon gave Cloud a big kiss!  Amazing, since he is very selective with his kisses.  :)   He also figured out right away that the emotions go inside the character’s pocket.

063009-002

But these are more than just cute stuffed animals – they are “toys with feelings inside.”  What does that mean exactly?  Each Kimochi character has a little pouch (like a kangaroo), and each character comes with 3 different emotions.  Cloud came with Happy, Sad, and Angry.  You can also purchase more emotions separately (Curious, Cranky, Left Out, Silly, Brave, Frustrated).  This allows you to discuss emotions with your child, and he or she can put the proper emotion into the little pocket to describe how he is feeling.

This whole concept is so innovative, and takes kids play to a whole new level.  When we first start teaching our kids to communicate, we seem focus so much on nouns and action verbs (eat, ball, airplane, etc) and less on emotions (happy, bored, angry, etc).   Brandon is just starting to learn how to speak, and I’m so glad that I am now learning how to help him get in touch with his emotions better.  Each Kimochi has a different personality, and comes with a booklet that will help you approach your child’s personality and allow them to develop more self-esteem and self-confidence.  You can read more on their website.

I’m so excited to be able to offer my readers one Kimochi of your choice (a $25 value) – Bug, Cloud, or Huggtopus.

Those dolls are really cute! ‘Kimochi’ is Japanese for ‘feelings’. :)

I signed up for Babybix and by far I love that you can monitor potty times specifically, not just diaper change times. Now that my daughter is almost 2 I don’t pay as much attention to her naps and feedings, but I definitely want to keep better track of her elimination times so that I have an idea of when she will need to go to the potty.

I also looked at the Kimochis website and would pick the cat.

I added you on my blogroll and subscribed to your RSS on my blogreader, but didn’t do that for extra credit.. ;)

I would choose the Kimochi Cloud Box for my toddler son. We adopted him from Russia in December and he stills needs to understand happy, sad and mad, the emotions that this toy addresses.

I would choose Cloud for my daughter because she also has a hard time controlling her emotions sometimes. Her favorite emotion, however, is happy laughter and giggling.
