Each character (Cloud, Huggtopus, and Bug) comes with 3 small “Kimochis™”. Or feelings inside a special pocket and a How-To Use Kimochis™ Feel Guide with fun easy lessons .Developed by nationally renowned child communication expert Ellen Pritchard Dodge M.ED.CCC-SLP.

While the Komochis have universal benefits for any children to learn more about feelings. It is especially useful if you have a child with a condition like autism.When teaching feelings is especially difficult. Your child is able to read the feeling on the back of the Kimochi and see the matching face on the front, and change the feelings on the character. We got Bug and have really enjoyed him.
Sometimes kids (and adults) have strong feelings that can fuel challenging behaviors. Sometimes it’s hard to know how to communicate when you are in an emotional moment. Kimochis are a playful way to help children (and adults!) learn how to identify and express feelings. When kids can communicate their feelings effectively, they develop positive social skills that lead to lasting friendships and success in all aspects of life. Kimochis teach the fourth “R”—reading, writing, arithmetic, and RELATIONSHIPS. This “R” is the foundation for success in ALL areas of life.
