About the Moodsters

The Moodsters were created by Denise Daniels, a Peabody award-winning broadcast journalist and author. A parenting and child development expert, Denise specializes in the social and emotional development of children.

A first-of-its kind brand, The Moodsters is backed by an evidence-based curriculum developed by renowned psychologist, Dr. Marc Brackett of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence.

The Moodsters are five lovable little detectives who use special sleuthing skills to help children solve the mysteries of feelings. With the help of The Moodsters, children learn that all feelings are okay - you just have to get to know them!

The Moodsters were created to educate, entertain, and enhance the social and emotional development of children through engaging characters, stories and toys. These fun learning tools provide children with a vocabulary for their feelings to help them understand and manage their emotions, and impart simple strategies that help kids handle the everyday challenges of growing up.

What Our Friends Have to Say

NEW! Moodster Yoga Mats!

Introducing Moodster Mats by premium yoga company, Kriya Veda. Moodster Mats were developed to help children manage their emotions through breathing, movement and other calming techniques. Moodster Mats create the perfect space for beginning yogis to learn about their bodies, build concentration, develop flexibility and create healthy habits that can last a lifetime.

"Childhood is a time of amazing discovery, as kids explore the world outside and begin to understand their feelings inside. The Moodsters and yoga can help kids find the link between the two - the mind-body connection. We are excited to work with celebrity yoga instructor and author, Kristin McGee, to offer fun and simple ideas on beginning your child’s yoga practice."
Denise Daniels, Creator of The Moodsters
