Great item for sharing feelings

When students come to the counselor's office (especially for the 1st time) many are overwhelmed with the toys, games, pictures throughout the room.  We've noticed that many are really enjoying Kimochis (Key-Mo-She) or as our students call them "the feelings toys".  Kimochi is the Japanese word for....Feeling!!!  These "feelings toys" are cute little stuffed friends that show an emotion or feeling.  Students often use Kimochis to describe how they are feeling in various situations, when telling a story or event and even to explore other feelings and emotions that they may have.   I have also recommended to several parents having them at home also so that children can share their feelings with their parents too.  These are a great addition to our counselor toys and games.
