Kimochi Dolls Teach Emotions

Kimochi Dolls Help Kids Share Their Feelings

Being a kid in this big, crazy world is hard work and with the hustle and bustle of growing up, comes a lot of feelings. It's a parent's responsibility look out for their child's emotionally stability and an inventive product might help you and your youngster in this process.

Kimochis ($25 each), a line of cuddly, plush dolls are designed to encourage children to express their feelings in a fun and comfortable way. Created by Marin-based mom Nina Rappaport Rowan, the dolls each come with a pocket where kids can tuck one of three little pillows bearing the name of an expression on one side and a drawing of a face expressing that emotion on the other. Sets of additional, more advanced, emotions – such as jealous, uncomfortable or embarrassed – can be purchased separately. The dolls are cute enough to be placed right on a wee one's bed and provide a great way to open the dialogue between generations.

I know these are for the kids, but I really want one. I would love to just leave it out with the "annoyed" or "uncomfortable" little emotion in it when I just don't feel like talking to anyone!
