Five loveable little detectives who help kids navigate the emotional maze of childhood.
The Moodsters is an innovative new children’s brand created to help kids learn to understand and manage their emotions. The Moodsters are five, lovable little detectives who use special sleuthing skills to help children solve the mysteries of feelings. With the help of The Moodsters, children learn that all feelings are okay—you just have to get to know them!
The Moodsters is a first-of-its-kind brand to educate, entertain, and enhance the social and emotional development of children. Through engaging characters, stories and toys, The Moodsters will teach children a vocabulary for their feelings, help them to understand and manage their emotions, and impart simple strategies that help them handle the challenges of everyday life. The Moodsters provide a platform between parents and preschoolers to talk about feelings, creating a fun bonding and learning experience for all.
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.” (Ages 3+)
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.” (Ages 3+)
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.” (Ages 3+)
