kimochis for families
Whether you’ve purchased just one character or the multiple characters and the Mixed Bag of Feelings, we recommend you watch the Getting Started with the Characters and Feelings video below. There isn’t a “right” or “wrong” way to play with Kimochis, but there are lots of fun ways to use them and we want to share all of our ideas with parents including these starter materials:
Have MORE feelings to express?
Our Kimochis® Mixed Bag of Feelings includes 33 Kimochis® plush feelings, our 64-page Feel Guide (with fun and easy communication tips from Ellen Pritchard Dodge, M.Ed., CCC-SLP), and a sturdy canvas bag for easy travel.
Invite spontaneous play and build emotional vocabulary!
- Put the Kimochis® feelings in a bowl in a high-traffic area of your home, classroom, or office.
- Surprise family members by hiding feelings in silly places or tucking thoughtful feelings into lunch boxes, backpacks, or a Kimochis® character’s pouch to let your child know that you are thinking of them.
