Right now with all of the uncertainty in our lives, it’s really challenging to know what’s going through our kids minds. They may be happy one minute about getting together with a friend for an outdoor playdate, then sad the next when they find out they can’t celebrate a special event with a large group of family or friends. Regardless of what they are feeling, they can share these emotions with their new Whatsitsface stuffed animal friend.

My daughter has so much fun changing their expressions. For example, this one is angry at bedtime about brushing his teeth. My daughter usually isn’t too excited to brush her teeth either!

And this time he is sleepy for bedtime.

It’s fun to have a variety of Whatsitsface stuffed animals so the kids can play with them together. My daughter says that she loves how comfy they are and how you can change their faces – when you’re happy then they can be happy, when you’re sad they can be sad with you. They’re always watching over you and understand how you’re feeling.

If you’re happy and you know it then your face will surely show it. That’s now true for stuffed animals with the Whatsitsface line of plush pals. Feeling happy, sad, surprised, amused, angry or sleepy can all happen with a twist of a knob or a flip of a face. Little ones can change the face of Puppy Dog, Kitty Cat or Teddy Bear ($24.99) to reveal six emotional expressions – building their empathy skills while extending creative playtime!

Despite the popularity of tech toys and WiFi-powered gadgets, old fashioned stuffed animals are still a child’s first best friend. Whatsitsface gives teddy a twist with a rotating option to turn a frown into a smile on a whim. The trio of snuggly stuffed animals was created by Colorado mom and businesswoman Joanna Paul to help her own kids enjoy imaginative play while improving their emotional intelligence (also known as EQ).

That EQ growth is even more important during these stay-at-home days and the expansion of online learning. “Watching your kids engage with a physical toy in the physical world — instead of being plugged-in — is what childhood is all about,” suggests Paul, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Whatsitsface. “Having a plush to cuddle and to actually communicate with really brings our stuffed animals to life, extending playtime and nurturing social and emotional development.”

Early childhood experts agree that interactive play is an important factor in the developmental growth of a child. Being able to express themselves through the facial expressions of their doll is a welcomed gift. Just ask any parent of a toddler!
