Kimochis....
Toys With Feelings Inside
Giveaway/Review

Kimochi (Key-mo-chee) means "feeling" in Japanese. Kimochis are what comes inside each of the characters. They are small pillows with a feeling printed on one side and the other side has corresponding facial expression.

We received Kimochi Huggtopus which is addorable as you can see (on right) my son liked her very much. It comes complete in peekaboo box with How-to Feel Guide and 3 child safe feelings ...Happy, Silly and Frustrated. You may also purchase more feelings such as jealous, loved, grateful, scared, shy ,kind,hurt, sorry, uncomfortable, friendly, and many more !

The Characters have a special pocket where kids can store their "Kimochis"(feelings). Using their characters and their Kimochis, kids can get in touch with their feelings through play. The Feeling Guide introduces the fun and quirkey personalities of each character. We learned that "Kimochi Huggtopus is all smiles and giggles.. She is very affectionate and strong and sometimes gets a little carried away by her big and friendly personality. She always means well, but has to learn about boundaries. Huggs' favorite number is 8 and she has a special fondness for bubblegum."

See Kimochi Cloud at work !


With Easter around the corner this would make a great addition to any Easter Basket or great birthday gift for any child !

    I would choose the Kimochi Huggtopus for my son because it really is the one that he would most relate to at his age since we are entering into the terrible two's. We are experiencing frustration, silliness, and happiness quite a bit.

  3. Erin Tales said...

    Huggtopus. Because he has so many arms for hugging. I think Lochlan would love him.

    I love this idea. I would choose the Huggtopus for my son because I think that his feeling can relate to this one the best right now.
    Thanks so much.

  30. Vicky H. said...

    I'd choose the Cloud Kimochi. I think that the emotions that come with it are the most basic that any child can understand and express. Plus, I think it's the cutest one, so if I decide to just keep it for myself... I'd have the one I like. LoL.

    It was hard to choose, because I think each one could help my boys in different ways. But I think the Kimochi Bug Box would be wonderful for my oldest boy, who is afraid to try new things but wants to do so much. I don't ever want him missing out on anything thats important to him.
