Clover Is forgetful and at times careless while having best intentions and kindness. Yellow is his fav colour and 7 his fav number. Even though he is a 4 leaf-clover he doesn't have the best of luck. Clover has skills with humour, either to cheer people up or to mask his internal feelings. Clover teaches us about bouncing back, resilience, creating hope and optimism.
Huggtopus She teaches us about setting appropriate boundaries, self-regulation with internal and external distractions as well as patience and tolerance. Huggtopus is all smiles and hugs, as she is super affectionate and can get lost in her big friendly personality. This enthusiasm can feel overbearing for those around her, she means well but needs to learn boundaries. Her friends can always count of Huggtopus to put a smile of their faces and hugs when they need support. She loves pink and the number 8. Huggtopus comes to life in this video: https://youtu.be/ls6fHOfQnhQ.
Cloud Has grey as his favourite colour, which links with his unpredictable at times grey personality. Happy one day, angry the next, sad the following and happy again. He loves eating butterscotch pudding and green tea. He helps us learn about tone of voice, body language, words and actions and how to feel mad without being mean.
Bug Is a caterpillar who is afraid of change, is super smart, skilled conversationalist and uses self-talk. He has great abilities to look at both sides of a situation, this is useful and also confusing when he talks the other kimochis out of what they are meant to be doing. Bug has a lucky number, 2. Bug helps us learn about how to take positive social and academic risks, use positive self-talk and is brave to overcome fears.
Cat She is a boss because she knows what she wants, when she wants it and why. She has persuasive skills and when her mind is made up there is no stopping her. Cat's number is 10 and adores purple. Cat is here to teach us about the importance of apologising and forgiveness, making safe, wise and kind choices and awesomely how to manage cranky feelings.
Lovey Dove Sweet, nurturing and always smooths dumpy situations. She is like the mother figure of the Kimochis and her home is where they spend a lot of their after school times playing together. Her favourite number is 11 and lemon yellow is her colour. We learn how to share pride without bragging, celebrate others peoples accomplishments, overcoming discouragement and moving through worried feelings.
Bella Rose Very sweet and conscientious Bella Rose. She has a sensitive side (both in a positive way and also challenging way), is able to empathise, always brings an emotional balance to the group. Her favourite number is 8, and loves green. She loves the smell of Clover:) Bella Rose has a hard time expressing herself, especially when her feelings get hurt. She can become closed off when she feels bad. We learn about compassion and empathy, sharing true feelings and how to avoid 'masking' feelings with hurtful actions.
There is also an additional Kimochi, called Hero, who helps families with physical separation (military families) and trauma. Hero is a dog whom helps families engage, strengths parent-child and parent-parent connections. Hero helps families stay unified during separations, celebrate and reintegrating when families come back together.
