Kimochi Dolls

041111kimochi.jpgWe usually don't choose to bring more stuffed animals into our small apartment, but not only are Kimochi dolls good looking- they rise to the challenge of helping little ones learn how to express their emotions.

The Kimochi dolls come with three emotions and you can buy additional six packs with different emotions to personalize the doll for your child. It also comes with a little booklet that teaches parents how the doll can be used.

We say anything that can prevent meltdowns and allow expression of emotions at a young age is a great thing, and this doll gives children a head start in the area of emotional intelligence.

We found them at Uncommon Goods. They're also available at Toys 'R Us and on Amazon.
