"My children were recently diagnosed on the spectrum, and what I found helpful, was using the My Mood Stars in my child's Sensory MELTDOWN Toolbox!! Huge help when trying to get my children to understand how they are feeling and to help me understand how he's feeling when he has a sensory overload. I Let him hold onto the My Mood Star he is feeling in one hand, and the happy star in the other.. it serves as a bridge and visual reminder to how he's feeling, that it will pass, and soon he will be feeling happy again!" -Echo Featherstone
The idea behind my mood stars
Self-confident children in touch with their feelings find it easier to flourish in social situations. Indeed personal, social and emotional development and communication are key aspects of the early years foundation stage in the UK.
Children who understand and can express and manage their own emotions, as well as those around them, or more likely to develop a positive sense of self and be assured and inquisitive learners.
Children love the tactile experience of popping there My Mood Stars on and off their very own specially designed self-adhesive board, which works as a Velcro like substance on the soft and cuddly skies stars themselves. The My Mood Stars board can be hung on the wall or propped up on the floor or a chair.
"Encouraging and emotional development was always a priority for me during my long career as an early years practitioner, leading me to design and development my moon stars"

I would like to introduce you to My Mood Stars. I developed My Mood Stars while caring for children while their parents were at work. I have always found that acceptable social behaviour is key to a child’s happiness, success and popularity.
I set about finding books and resources to help me and the children I cared for grow to recognise emotions and facial cues. There were many on the web but nothing soft and tactile and cuddly. So I set about making My Mood Stars
My Mood Stars enable children to immerse themselves in imaginative play, either by themselves or with others and offer a fun opportunity for children to talk about how they are feeling. Use the My Mood Stars to set the scene for endless stories and games to be made with Shy Star, Sad Star, Cross Star, Happy Star, Sleepy Star, Surprised Star, Scared Star and Silly Star! (Of course you can make up your own names for the stars to coincide with the vocabulary that you use in your home.)
My Mood Stars are becoming increasingly popular with families of children on the autism spectrum to help them recognise and acknowledge expressions and facial cues. My Mood Stars are unique in as much as they are a tactile resource that can be carried around just like other soft toys bringing comfort and reassurance.
My Mood Stars come with their own My Mood Stars board onto which they can pop on and off for extended play and learning. Older kids have been able to vent out their emotions and turn anger into laughter as they throw the My Mood Stars onto the My Mood Stars board and watch them stick! My Mood Stars have also brought out their own My Mood Stars book which also encourages children to talk about, and make notes or drawings to show how they are feeling.
