The Moodsters Feelings Flashlight {Holiday Gift Guide} #sponsored #themoodsters

I received a Moodster Feelings Flashlight and storybook as part of The Moodsters Ambassadors.  All opinions are my own.


Bedtime routines are so important with little ones.  We've always done the same nightly ritual:  brush teeth, get tucked in, a story, turn on the night lamp and noise maker, and say goodnight.   Lately my preschooler has been struggling.  She has suddenly decided that she can't sleep with just a night light and wants her closet light on.  That fear of the dark is powerful and we have been searching for ways to make it a little easier for her.



One of the latest toys from The Moodsters has made our bedtime ritual more fun and bed time a little less scary:  The Moodsters Feelings Flashlight and story book The Scary Sleepover.



We read The Scary Sleepover together before bedtime and talked about our fears.  She said she was afraid of the dark and scary monsters.  I reassured her that everyone has fears like that and it's okay.  We also talked about how we could make night time less scary.  She has her favorite stuffed animal to squeeze, the extra light, and mommy or daddy just a call away.   

The Moodsters The Scary Sleepover & Feelings Flashlight

After reading, we took out the flashlight and turned out the lights.  The feelings flashlight projects each of the Moodster characters onto the wall or ceiling and you can push buttons to hear their voices.  It's a great tool to illuminate a little one's feelings and build emotional intelligence skills!  Plus, it distracted her from her fear of the dark and got her excited about turning off the lights!  (this probably isn't something we will be leaving in her room to play with all night and avoid sleeping)

The Moodsters Feelings Flashlight has really helped us talk about feelings more in a new and fun way!  It's a great tool for us parents too.  Both of my girls love the Moodsters and look forward to seeing what new toy will be coming next.  (we can't wait for the app!)

You can see a quick demonstration in our video below:

We have read a book on emotions and share how we feel at different times. We talk about how emotions aren't "wrong," we just have to understand our emotions and stay in control of them, rather than them controlling us! Good advice for us adults too!
