Owl & Oak

Your child may be small, but they have feelings as big and bold as the future ahead of them: it’s important for them to understand their relationships with ALL their emotions, good and bad.

While abacuses teach math and puzzles teach problem-solving, we noticed there are few toys that encourage play AND educate children (and adults!) on the importance of mental health.

Developed with early childhood development specialists, the Moodies help children vocalize their emotions and bridge the communication gap between their problems and parents.

Owl & Oak

The Moodies are real-life friends: go-to support buddies that children can turn to when their emotions start to feel bigger than they are.

The soft-stuffed dolls are cute, fun, and cuddly enough to be played with alone - No virtual reality, sharp corners or need for a bandaid in sight - or read together to engage with each character’s unique story.

Whether that’s in bed or in kindergarten, The Moodies encourage independence and will be there when they’re in need of support at times when you aren’t around.

The experience with the Moodies is different for every child - there’s no one-size advice that fits every child, so we created stories that ask questions that educate your child without dulling their unique shine.

Designed in collaboration with early development specialists, The Moodies are educational toys which enable your child to navigate the complexities of their growing emotions without the need for words. The Moodies encourage open discussion between children and their families to build a bond of communication, teach empathy and emphasize that all feelings deserve a space to be shared.

Elliot's story is about a little forest creature who isn't like the others. He's a softie at heart who enjoys being creative in the comfort of his own company.

          So often, children are punished for being human. They are not allowed to have grumpy moods, bad days, disrespectful tones, or bad attitudes. Yet, we adults have them all the time. None of us are perfect. We must stop holding our children to a higher standard of perfection than we can attain ourselves.

          The Moodies give me and my son the ability to communicate our emotions to each other in a way we wouldn't have been able to without them. They have brought us closer as a result, and also reduced meltdown moments as he's more in tune with his feelings.

          My kids have been enjoying the Moodies. They really enjoy the time we spent together reading the story inside!

          The Moodies offer my children the chance to channel their emotions in a healthy and controlled way making it easier to figure out what their needs are and how I can help to be a better listener. After having a child go through speech therapy, my family truly values products that encourage positive communication. We would recommend them to everyone.

          Great companion for my anxious babies! Growing up amidst the pandemic, my kids have not had as much social interaction and this makes them very anxious around new faces. These moodies helped them process these new emotions. These are great snuggle buddies too. I highly recommend these moodies for your little ones!

          She loved it! This was a Christmas gift (given a little early) for a friend’s grand baby who loves Octopus. The baby was thrilled with the “lovie” - and the mom loved that she could read her a story while the baby cuddles the “book”. A great gift!

          Best plushy friends! Moodie plush friends are so adorable! My son loves them and love how it helps with his social emotional development!

          Adorable! Mindfulness is amazing for children. We need it as adults as well. Learning emotions is very important as well. Feelings are just feelings. Thoughts are just thoughts. We don’t have to act on them.

          Love Love Love. These moodies have been amazing. My kiddos have been connecting to their moodies to talk about how they are feeling and how to work with their feelings to problem solve. Such a great idea.
