Assisting young children in expressing their own emotions.

How might we assist kids to better communicate their emotions in times of uncertainty?
Customer / Problem
We hope to focus primarily on young children aged 4 to 11, lacking connection and any solid method of expression. Amidst the pandemic, children in their formative, developmental years are finding it difficult to express emotions about their current state and circumstances. This could become a lifelong problem.
A stuffed toy range that comes in different colours for different emotions. Customers can buy the whole range and kids can use it to learn about different emotions and what they mean in a simple, fun way. The toy comes with a bracelet that connects to an app and the bracelet changes colours with the toy. This can help build emotional intelligence from a young age and help youth become emotionally intelligent adults.
