Thank you for Povi for partnering on this post. All opinions are my own.

Helping young kids understand how to explain what they’re feeling can be a challenge.  Frustration, sadness, joy -those are concepts that aren’t easy to put into words, especially if they don’t know why they are feeling them.

Povi is the new EQ toy to help you discuss emotions with your child

The all-new Povi is designed to help spark conversation between parents and their children about emotions and feelings.  Povi is an EQ (emotional quotient) content platform and app that uses a cuddly buddy as the delivery tool for the stories.

Povi is designed for children 3-8 comes loaded with 10 stories; an additional 20 stories are available via the free app (both Android and iOS).  He will share a story based on kids’ everyday situations, and then parents can follow up with prompts from the app.  For example, after a story that focuses on empathy, the app might prompt parents to ask, “How can you tell when someone is sad?”.

Studies have shown that preschoolers who participate in social-emotional skill building exhibit less aggression and anxiety, and become better social problem solvers.  Both of those are great reasons to make sure you are having early conversations with your kiddos about how to handle and identify emotions.

They are launching their campaign today over on Kickstarter.  Head over and read how inventor Seow Lim came up with the concept, and check out a sample story.  You can also take advantage of the Kickstarter pre-order price of just $49, which is 40% off Povi’s retail price.
