We all know that kids are FULL of emotions and now your little ones can show off their emotions with their stuffed animals with the Whatsitsface line of plush pals! Feeling happy, sad, surprised, amused, angry or sleepy can all happen with a twist of a knob or a flip of a face.
Little ones can change the face of Puppy Dog, Kitty Cat or Teddy Bear to reveal six emotional expressions – building their empathy skills while extending creative playtime!
Baby Sis here is 3 years old and EVERY SINGLE NIGHT she picks out a stuffed animal to snuggle all night long but this last week it has been Kitty here. A good old fashioned stuffed animal is still her best toy.
Whatsitsface gives teddy a twist with a rotating option on the top to turn the face and with each of the three turns you can also flip the face for a total of 6 expressions. Easily turn a frown around!
The trio of snuggly stuffed animals was created by Colorado mom and businesswoman Joanna Paul to help her own kids enjoy imaginative play while improving their emotional intelligence (also known as EQ).
Early childhood experts agree that interactive play is an important factor in the developmental growth of a child and being able to express themselves through the facial expressions of their favorite stuffed animal is a welcomed toy!
Baby Sis here is definitely in the age of temper tantrums so I really like the idea of letting her have a stuffed animal that helps her express her emotions as she is learning about them herself.
She loves making the angry face although her frown looks far too cute to be angry! I especially enjoy catching her changing the faces of kitty on her own while she is pretend playing in her room all alone. It always makes me smile! My personal favorite face is the sleepy face….she will turn it to the sleepy face for bed and then she will do her sleepy face as well and it is now a part of our bedtime routine! Helping little ones with their emotions can be really hard sometimes and the adorable Whatsitsface plushes can really help out!
