I’m back with another fun way to play with the Moodsters™ toys. We used the Feelings Flashlight™ to play some flashlight games. Grab a flashlight and play along.
The Moodsters Feelings Flashlight™
I introduced this product and the new line of Moodsters toys in a previous post. Read more about how the Moodsters toys help develop emotional intelligence. I also told you how much my daughter loves the Feelings Flashlight. Today’s post focuses on the flashlight and the games we play with it. The Feelings Flashlight is an electronic talking flashlight that features the five Moodsters characters. It also comes with a 32-page storybook, “The Scary Sleepover.”
Push the On button and the characters talk about the emotions they represent. Scroll through the different characters by turning the purple dial on the flashlight. The Moodster character will appear in the circle.
When you press the On button, the flashlight turns on and a character image will appear as you shine the light on the wall or ceiling. You can adjust the focus of the image by turning the front of the flashlight. This means you can shine the light at different distances and still have a clear picture.
Flashlight Games with the Feelings Flashlight
Each time you press the On button, the Moodster shown will talk. The characters say their names along with the feelings they represent. They talk about what they do when they feel a certain way. They give you actions to complete. For example, Razzy says she stomps when she is mad.
She asks you to stomp with her. My kids shined flashlights on the ground as they stomped. (My oldest used another flashlight while my daughter used the Feelings Flashlight.)
Each character also shares “Moodster moments” where they talk about how to handle the emotions. Razzy says, “When you’re angry, take a deep breath and count to 10. Before you know it, you’ll feel better again.
What I’m calling “flashlight color tag” is my favorite game on the Feelings Flashlight. Razzy will ask you how many red things you can find with your flashlight.
Or Quigly, the green Moodster detective, will ask you to find something that is green. In the picture below, Lily is shining the flashlight on top of a green bag.
Lolly, the pink Moodster detective, asks you to make the shape of a heart with your flashlight. What other shapes can you make?
