Kimochi: Emotion & Feeling Toys

One of the hottest products in educational toys this year are the Kimochis...toys with feelings inside. The perfect gift for toddlers (and their parents).  With an already strong following, even celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Garner can't resist!  This brand has also been awarded the Creative Child Magazine 2009 Seal of Excellence and Best Vacation Products by Dr. Toy. 

Kimochi (key.moch.ee) means feeling in Japanese.  And that's what this brand is all about.  Feelings can be messy and, using the Kimochi characters, kids can get in touch with their own emotions in a fun and comfortable way while at the same time communicating what they're feeling to their parents.  These tactile, interactive toys come in a range of characters including Cloud, Huggtopus, Cat, Lovey, and Bug.  Each interactive Kimochi has a pouch to store its feelings-felt cushions in bright colors with a facial expression on one side and the name of the emotion on the other side. Children learn by placing the cushion that best matches their feelings into their Kimochi and sharing the experience. The process calms, comforts and instills confidence.

Report: Brooke Mueller Entered Rehab At 5 Months Pregnant

Report: Brooke Mueller Entered Rehab At 5 Months Pregnant

Adding another level of controversy to the already volatile situation, Brooke Mueller reportedly went to rehab for alcohol abuse when she was pregnant with her twin boys Max and Bob, RadarOnline reports.

Reportedly, Mueller went to rehab for alcoholism at the 5-month mark of her pregnancy after bottles of booze were found in her car. A source states that when one of the twins was born with a heart problem, her husband Charlie Sheen blamed the medical condition on Brooke because of her drinking habits during the pregnancy.

Sheen spent Christmas in a Colorado jail after being arrested on domestic violence charges. Reportedly, both Sheen and Mueller had been drinking that night. Sheen, who has been through rehab twice, has yet to publicly address his relapse. “They both have drinking problems,” said a source. “And neither of them should be drinking.”

Mueller has previously been arrested twice, once on an alcohol charge and once on a cocaine charge.

Do you think Brooke abused alcohol during her pregnancy?

    Angelina Jolie’s Late Mother Leaves Trust Funds To Three Grandchildren

    Angelina Jolie's Late Mother Leaves Trust Funds To Three Grandchildren

    Two years after her passing, the estate of Angelina Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, has finally been settled, leaving trust funds for three of her six grandchildren, reports PEOPLE.

    Marcheline, who died of ovarian cancer in January 2007 at the age of 56, left $100,000 each to Maddox, 8, Shiloh, 3, and Zahara, who will celebrate her fifth birthday this Friday.

    According to TMZ, the children will have access to the money when they turn 25.

    The other half of Angelina and Brad Pitt’s crew – Pax, 6 & 17-month-old twins, Knox and Vivienne – became part of the Jolie-Pitt family after Marcheline’s last will update in 2006, and are therefore not part of the settlement.

    Rooster McConaughey Dishes On Proud Papa Matthew

    Rooster McConaughey Dishes On Proud Papa Matthew

    Uncle Rooster McConaughey reports that proud parents Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are “doing fine” after welcoming their daughter Vida on Sunday.

    “He called me on Sunday afternoon and said, ‘I made a little baby girl,'” Rooster tells People. “He’s all proud… He’s got it going on now.”

    He also weighed in on his newborn niece’s name, saying that booze-inspired names are more his style than they are Matthew’s.

    “I think I ruined it for him because I’ve already taken up that territory. I named my [3½-year-old] boy Miller Lyte because that’s my favorite beer. And my [11-month-old] little girl is named Margarita Olympia… I liked that beer, too, even though they don’t even make it anymore.”

    In a show of friendly brotherly competition, Rooster says he told Matthew to “quit copying me” when he heard the news that he’s now the dad of a daughter.

    “Hell, we’ve got so many McConaughey girls now, we’re all gonna have to learn volleyball and cheerleading,” he jokes.

    Matthew and Camila are also parents to 17-month-old son Levi.
