A new toy company, Mango Education based in Chichester, has been formed to bring Kimochi toys to the UK.
Kimochi (pronounced 'Key-mo-chee') means 'feeling' in Japanese and the toys are plush, educational characters designed to help children 'identify, understand and manage their feelings in a fun, enjoyable way'.
Also available, the Kimochis Educators Tool Kit is aimed at schools and includes a curriculum-based teachers guide to help integrate the toys into classes.
The five main Kimochis characters, Cat, Lovey Dove, Bug, Cloud and Huggtopus, can all be purchased individually.
