EMOTIBLOCKS by Miniland
Emotiblocks is a multi-award-winning educational learning toy that can help younger children or children with special needs become familiar with basic emotions such as: sad, angry, surprised, happy, bored and scared. This character building set has chunky interchangeable pieces enabling children to freely create likeable characters representing different emotions. Build characters with six different expressions, two skin tones, three hair colours as well as boy and girl hairstyle options so that children can create characters they can identify with while valuing diversity, tolerance and inclusion.
The blocks come with a set of six double-sided flash cards. On the one side is a picture of a real child expressing an emotion with the accompanying word (in six languages). On the flipside of the card are pictures of three different Emotiblocks. The child must choose the Emotiblock that matches the emotion in the picture. Use this product to encourage your child to choose a character that reflects how they are feeling, how you are feeling or how others are feeling.
In addition to being an emotional intelligence toy, Emotiblocks are also good for sorting, building, mixing and matching and pretend play activities. This multi-purpose set is compatible with entire Miniland Superblocks range. Download the free Play Miniland app and extend your experience with digital resources.
