Tools for BIG feelings

Helping Educators and Families help kids manage difficult feelings and challenging behaviors.

Kimochis® look like toys, but they are communication tools that give children the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to recognize and manage their emotions, demonstrate caring and concern for others, establish positive relationships in order to make responsible decisions to handle challenging situations constructively.

Kimochi (KEY-MOE-CHEE) means “feelings” in Japanese.

“Kimochis are great because they get children to talk about their more ‘negative’ feelings with other kids and with teachers and parents. Here is a vehicle for coaching children about feelings, which is the royal road to these magic moments for connecting with our children.”
