Make A Face
A Rose and Rex favorite, the wooden Make a Face toy is one of our top picks for emotional and social development, not to mention storytelling, dramatic play (okay, we could go on…). Use Make a Face to help kids convey how they’re feeling through play, which makes the topic of “feelings” less heavy. The beautiful geometric pieces combine into hundreds of expressions. Not only do children practice recognizing their own feelings, they learn how to recognize feelings in others. Great for teaching empathy, Make A Face comes with a feeling chart that helps start a healthy dialogue!
