Last year we published an article on how to show kids what love means, in which we suggested that “it´s not a matter of buying them things but rather giving themselves to others and that empathy is needed to do that.” Why is this important? Because it’s a behavioural model that is key to experiencing social relationships. If you haven´t been able to read it, we suggest you to do now that Valentine´s Day is right around the corner. Plus, by playing with these I Love You Plush toys by Famosa, you´ll be sure they get the message.

One of our favourite movies of 2015 was, without a doubt, Inside Out, from the Pixar and Disney Factory. Although many believe it is a film that speaks more to adults, Inside Out is a fantastic opportunity to talk to our children about emotions. Being able to manage them is what will make them grow up to become happier individuals because learning about emotions, how they work and how to manage them is far more important than learning math and English. Now, thanks to Famosa, you will be able to help them learn by playing with the new collection of stuffed toys, inspired by the characters in the movie.
