Learn about feelings Moodsters Style
Summer is almost over and it's time to start thinking about back-to-school planning and preparation. Buying notebooks and scoping out sales is the easy part, but there are less tangible things you can do as well like teaching your child emotional intelligence skills (EQ). The Moodsters is a first-of-its-kind brand, developed by renowned child development expert Denise Daniels, to educate, entertain, and enhance children’s social and emotional development in the lead up to the new school year.
With the help of The Moodsters, children learn the fundamentals of feelings and develop the ability to recognize, understand and manage their emotions. What better time to get started then before school starts!
Moodster Feelings Flashlight
Squash those afraid-of-the-dark fears with the Feelings Flashlight. Shining a light on feelings has never been easier or more fun than with The Moodsters! Before naptime or bedtime, point the flashlight toward the ceiling or a wall, and The Moodsters will magically appear, offering wisdom and humor for every emotion. Includes full-color, 32-page storybook, “The Scary Sleepover.”
Young children often don’t have the verbal skills to put their feelings into words. The Moodster Meter puts those tools in the child’s hands—literally! This interactive teaching toy gives children a basic vocabulary of feelings and helps them express themselves. The Meter has a special Power Up button enabling children to point the arrow to the Moodster that represents how they are feeling, opening doors for calm communication about emotions. Includes full-color, 32-page storybook, “Meet the Moodsters.”
Preschoolers are often blissfully unaware of how their emotions show on their faces, or how to read others’ faces for clues to their feelings. The Moodster Mirror helps them make the connection between feelings on the inside and facial expressions on the outside. Kids make a happy, sad, angry, scared, or loving face into the Moodster Mirror, and they are able to see what these feelings look like to others. By turning the dial, kids select the matching Moodster to hear the character’s wisdom about that particular feeling, which will help kids recognize their own emotions and non-verbal cues. Includes full-color, 32-page storybook, “A Time to be Kind.”
