Product Review: Moody Bands Full Set (Ages 5+)
Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve
Do you have a child that has trouble explaining or expressing their emotions? Are you interested in encouraging emotional interactions and creating open dialogue with your kids while being aware of others emotions? The award-winning Moody Bands are six unique wrist bands that come in different colors with embroidered faces attached for each of the following emotions; Happy, Angry, Nervous, Sad, Excited and Tired. Moody Bands are 100% cotton wrist bands and are machine washable! Moody Bands was created to have a fun way for a child to express their emotions to help a parent be aware of their mind frame and encourage appropriate emotional interactions in a positive manner. Children simply switch their Moody Band with every mood change to encourage emotional interaction and open dialogue with others. Our daughter certainly has fun putting on the wrist bands and her knowledge of emotions currently boils down to happy, sad, angry and scared so this will be a fun way to continue talking about other emotions and facial expressions that exist with her as she gets older.
While Moody Bands is considered a universal educational item, Autism Spectrum Disorder parents and children could benefit greatly from Moody Bands. In fact, Moody Bands are recommended by The Sensory University Toy Company, operated by Peach State Pediatric Therapy Inc, as an extremely valuable therapy tool. The statistics given on their site state that approximately 65 percent of streamline children and 95 percent of special needs children have extreme difficulty expressing emotions to adults. Moody Bands is used so that the child knows the adults can read their moods without having to say a word. Excellent idea!
About Moody Bands: Two years ago, Bryan DeVore bought the Moody Bands product idea from Naif J. Faris (see his Byron the Bear books on dealing with emotions while facing challenges) and saw the potential in marketing this educational toy to the masses. He and his wife, Audra, (parents to a young daughter) have put a lot of time, effort and finances to re-launch this product that they believe in and are committed to championing. Check out the DeVore’s newest blog feature on their website here. Great job to both of you! Bryan also indicated that they are developing an additional 12 Moody Band emotions that should be available for sale by the Christmas season!
Emotional Literacy leads to emotional health; emotional health helps us to fulfill our potential in every aspect of life.
