If you’re looking for a unique gift item for your little one or the little one on your shopping list, check out the dolls available on the Kimochis website. There are 4 different characters available; each with a different story and different feelings to teach. In fact, the word Kimochi means “Feeling” in Japanese.
For review, my son was sent the doll Kimochi Cloud. Cloud is very unique as one side of his head shows a smile and the other side can turn to show a frown. He is 13 inches tall and very squish-able.
The three child-safe feelings that Cloud helps to teach are “Sad”, “Mad”, and “Happy”. With the doll comes a book that helps give parents ideas on how to use the Kimochis or “feelings” that come with the doll to teach children how to better communicate the way they feel.
Alex loves his Kimochi Cloud doll and is already starting to use more words about feelings since he got the doll. He often turns Cloud’s head around over and over and says “Happy and sad”. Then, when we look at the 3 Kimochi pillows that are tucked inside Cloud’s pouch, Alex will name the different faces and I’ll show him the word on the opposite side to help with with word recognition.
Beyond the dolls, you can purchase separate “Mixed Feelings” packs that are made up of 6 different Kimochis to add to your collection.
So how did this idea come about? Here is some information for you from the Kimochis Feel Guide book that came with Kimochi Cloud:
“One mom brought her simple, yet genius, idea to life after the birth of her son. “Why not make toys with feelings inside?” Other moms saw the genius in this and joined in with the hope to create a toy that can actually bring peace to their own households, neighborhoods and playgrounds.”
Alex and I love sharing time with his Kimochi Cloud doll. I hope to be able to get one for my little girl in about two years. So she can have something of her own to share and learn from.
Buy It: Kimochi dolls can be purchased for only $25 on the Kimochi website.
