Explore feelings with this group of delightful, stuffed dolls. KOBE Feeling Dolls©can help you in a fun and non threatening way to facilitate group and individual emotional communication with children and adults. They can be used to communicate what happens when we feel, express, stuff and/or get stuck in a feeling. In this form one can get their hands on a feeling. The collective message of these characters is that a person’s feelings are their own, that it is important to express emotions in ways that are safe and that sending feelings into hiding effect one’s well-being.
Use KOBE Feeling Dolls to represent a feeling from inside the body. This is as if to say, “Let’s take the feeling out of our body and look at it, touch it, think about it". From this place, you may discover that children, and adults, are more willing to discuss their feelings and feel less threatened and resistant to do so.
