Watching a child have an emotional breakdown and feeling powerless to help can be overwhelming to many parents. This fun new storybook and toy set will help. Meet The Moodsters and learn about feelings along with your children. It will help them learn how to identify and manage their emotions as well as to communicate their feelings to parents, which will make a parent’s job that much easier.
In this 32-page “Meet The Moodsters” storybook, seven year old Zach has a mishap during a magic trick causing him to have some big emotions. But The Moodsters are on the scene to help Zach understand his emotions and get his good mood back.
Five little detectives in Meet the Moodsters help their friends, Zach and Zoey, whenever they have a “feelings emergency.” The detectives are Coz, Lolly, Snorf, Razzy and Quigly.
This handy little mood meter , an electronic feelings thermometer, comes along with this storybook as a tactile accessory for children to use as a learning tool and communication method for identifying and then indicating to others what they are feeling. Character voices helps children learn the correct words for their feelings so they can express their emotions.
Just look at these wonderfully illustrated and colorful images! I’m in love with these characters already. In this illustration Zach is meeting Moodsters, Coz and Razzy, for the first time. Every page features really beautiful illustrations that will keep children engaged in reading (or listening to) the story.
Scientific research has shown that children who have emotional intelligence skills are better able to communicate about and manage their own feelings as well as understanding and coping with the feelings of others.
The Moodsters would make great gifts for toddlers and elementary age children. My sister has basically threatened the entire family to stop buying her kids toys because they have too many as it is and they aren’t exactly careful with them, so they often end up broken. But, they’re kids and kids learn through play. So, for kids who are rough with their toys (probably because they lack the skills to deal with their emotions?) this could be a great option. It’s a book and a fun toy in one!
Other titles in the series include The Scary Sleepover (which includes the Feelings Flashlight accessory) and A Time To Be Kind (featuring the Moodster Mirror). All of these titles are available at Target stores nationwide and on Target.com, with each toy and story book set retailing for $19.99 each.
