Featuring Kimochis! CLOSED

When I stumbled across this product on another blog I was instantly intrigued. I went straight to their website to begin reading and was very impressed with this! I contacted the owner, who is a wonderful lady ;) and asked her to be a part of our celebration! Not only did she say yes, but she so kindly sent Krash his very own Kimochi Cloud and an extra feeling pack! What in the world is a Kimochi Cloud and a Feeling Pack, you ask? Well, let me tell you a bit about them!

These are the oh-so-cute Kimochis...

This is the Kimochi Cloud that Krash is now in love with...
The Cloud itself comes with the 3 feelings shown and we also got to try out this extra set! In our extra set there was one particular feeling that Krash was quite fond of...jealous! I have no idea why really, he barely understands what jealous even means, but he loves this little green guy!

When our Kimochi came in the mail I gave it to Krash and just let him explore...
Then we began to discuss the different feelings and we made their faces! Here he is being surprised...
Krash (and even Pac Man-age 7) has spent tons of time playing with his Kimochi, with and without me. For awhile he slept with a few of the little feelings (jealous included) but then we began to lose them in the covers so I made him stop sleeping with them!
I was so inspired by this toy that I also created a Tot Book all about feelings to kick off our new school year!!! We will be using our Kimochi along with our Tot Book to really work on identifying all of our feelings and how to handle them.

This toy is creative, open-ended, fun, and educational. It is well made, adorable and loved by my boys! I highly recommend a Kimochis, especially if you have a younger child who struggles with emotions at all. You can buy your own Kimochi here and read all of the wonderful ideas they have on their site!

I am thrilled that one of you will win your VERY OWN KIMOCHI!!! You even get to pick between the Huggtopus, Cloud, or Bug.

Jolene (South Africa) said...

I adore these characters. The perfect addition to the feelings unit "study".

I love the "in love" Kimochi

Mrs W said...

I think that my children would enjoy the Cloud the best.

By the way, Kimochi's look good but their website is a pain. You cannot read the full description of the Kimochi's, and it's very noisy when you first get to the site. It was so noisy it woke my baby up. (And he sleeps through a LOT). And as we all know, that is not so good LOL.

Kimochis is a great resource, not only are they fun but educational at the same time!!
