What is emotional intelligence? Emotional intelligence (a.k.a. emotional quotient or EQ) is defined as the ability to use, understand, manage and handle your emotions. The Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks Gift Box is a bundle of adorable items that can help your baby or preschooler develop their emotional intelligence.
The Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks gift sets and toys help toddlers create meaningful connections by encouraging them to be aware of, name, understand, and voice their emotions.
The Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks Plushies are designed to be your child’s softest friends and are also highly versatile emotional intelligence learning tools. Your kiddo will have fun playing with Hoppy’s & Poppie’s bendable fuzzy antennae and zippered pockets.
This gift box also comes with a Patoo Blankie – a quilted machine washable blankie with yellow, green, white and blue sections.
The colorful Emotion Wristbands are designed to be your toddler’s first emotional intelligence (EQ) learning tool. Children learn the names of and choose from the 6 primary emotions: happy, sad, scared, excited, angry and calm. You child will be excited to wear the wristbands that name the emotions that they are feeling in the present moment. This aids in developing the valuable EQ skill of self-awareness. Additionally, the wristbands teach them how to verbalize their emotions, which is a very important way to build EQ and helps your kid actively learn empathy and awareness of others.
The Emotion Wristbands are a fun toy for learning that emotions are temporary. Combine active play with the plushies by taking the wristbands and using the zippered pockets on the back of the Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks plushies. Have your child insert the emotion wristband that they imagine the characters are feeling. This playtime activity reinforces the awareness of emotions in others and empathy as part of their make-believe play.
The Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks Gift Box also comes with “The Not SO Scary” Board Book and “The What We Feel” Board Book. Reading these interactive books with baby or toddler child can help them learn to recognize not only their own emotions, but also those of others.
This particular Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks Gift Box retails for $69.95. However, there are a variety of gift sets at varying price points. You can also buy the boards books and/or the Patoo Flying Blanket separately.
