If feelings are on the line, The Moodsters are on the case!
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 is a first-of-its-kind brand, created to educate, entertain, and enhance the social and emotional development of children. Through engaging characters, stories and toys, The Moodsters will teach children a vocabulary for their feelings, help them understand and manage their emotions, and impart simple strategies that help kids handle the everyday challenges of growing up. The Moodsters provide the platform from which parents and preschoolers can talk about feelings, creating a fun bonding and learning experience for all.
With their motto of “We do what we do because we care about you,” the Moodsters are committed to helping Zach and Zoey navigate the emotional maze of childhood. The Moodsters know that there are no right or wrong feelings, and that all feelings are okay! The Moodsters also know that learning about feelings is important, and that keeping upset feelings inside can cause all kinds of aches and pains.
Each Moodster personifies a basic emotion that all children experience in their everyday lives: sunshine-yellow Coz is HAPPY, ragin’ red Razzy feels ANGRY, in-the-pink Lolly is LOVING, boo-hoo-blue Snorf feels SAD, and shaking-like-a-leaf green Quigly is SCARED. And though the Moodsters have serious feelings, they don’t take their feelings too seriously. Each emotion is an opportunity for humor and fun.
With their rallying cry of “Power up, Moodsters,” the Moodsters turn to their detective tools to help solve the case. Coz carries the Moodster Mirror (a magnifying glass/mirror) that helps him decode non-verbal cues in others, such as facial expressions or gestures. Razzy has the Moodster Meter, which works like a feelings thermometer. Quigly uses the Feelings Flashlight that helps illuminate feelings. Lolly uses her Feelings Notebook so she can write or draw about feelings. Snorf uses the First Aid for Feelings Kit filled with lots of tools to help heal the feelings “ouchies.”
HAPPY Coz, the lead detective of The Moodsters, approaches life with an optimistic, can-do attitude—Coz shows kids the good things that can happen if you’re willing to give it a try. When Coz is super-duper happy (which is often), bubbles float out of his ears—and he may even break into his joyful Happy Dance!
Razzy is a little red dynamo with an ANGRY streak—yes, it’s okay for girls to get angry!—and she’s determined to crack every case. Razzy uses her Moodster Meter to take her friends’ mood temperature, and she’s discovered that when she’s feeling mad, counting to 10 helps in any number of ways!
Quigly is the Moodster who’s AFRAID of most everything, even his own shadow or silly, made-up creatures like “two-headed hippos with carrots for teeth that wear striped socks and hide in the treehouse.” Quigly shows that even big boys get scared—luckily, his Moodster friends are there to help show him how to be brave.
Lolly is the sweet, pink Moodster who’s full of LOVE for every creature, big or small. This girly girl is also strong—she’s ready to get her hands dirty, lend a listening ear, and or provide a snuggle to anyone who needs it (like sniffly Snorf or frightened Quigly). Lolly rallies the team and comes up with creative solutions for every challenge.
Everyone feels SAD sometimes—especially Snorf. Whenever Snorf is feeling blue, he turns to his never-ending hankie, the support of his friends, and a big brave, healthy cry to feel better again. Fortunately, his enormous blue ears can act as windshield wipers to wipe the tears away!
The Moodsters are best friends to Zach (age 7) and his little sister, Zoey (4). The siblings quickly discover that whenever trouble is brewing, they can always count on The Moodsters to help.
Underneath Zach’s bed is The Moodsters’ HQ, their Emote Control Center. From their work stations in the Emote Control Center, The Moodsters watch over Zach and Zoey. Whenever their friends experience an overload of emotions, The Moodsters jump into action to help them.
