‘Inside Out’ toys have us playing with our emotions


Kids are learning to deal with their emotions. There are just so many feelings they are learning to control, including joy, sadness, anger, disgust, and fear. Thanks goodness Disney Pixar is coming out with a movie that describes just that. In Disney’s Inside Out, we are introduced to Riley, a happy, hockey-loving 11 year old girl whose world is turned upside-down when she and her parents have to move. Riley’s emotions – led by Joy – try to guide her through this difficult transition. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness to take control, causing Joy and Sadness to be swept deep inside Riley’s mind. This results in Anger, Fear, and Disgust in charge of Riley’s emotions, while Joy and Sadness find a way back to Headquarters.

With every kid’s movie comes kids toys that were made for them. With Inside Out, young kids are learning how to control their emotions. Emotions are a difficult thing to go through, but they don’t need to do it alone. Check out the products below and find the perfect product for your child, or even, yourself.
