Cloud, like the weather can be a bit unpredictable. One day he is happy, the next he is mad and the next day, who knows, maybe sad or even happy again. Cloud can show his moods with a simple twist of his head. Cloud’s head actually turns! He has a happy face on one side and a sad face on the other. Cloud comes with three feelings: Happy, Sad, and Mad and the how-to Feel Guide.
Cat is a decisive leader and can be very persuasive. Her bossiness can sometimes lead to confrontation and an occasional "cat fight." Cat comes with five bandages to help heal hurt feelings, three feelings: Happy Curious and Cranky and the how-to Feel Guide.
Bug is a caterpillar who is afraid of change. He is thoughtful, cautious and has secret dreams of flying. When Bug is feeling brave you can spread his wings! When he is feeling afraid you can tuck his wings away in the pocket on his back. Bug comes with three feelings: Happy, Brave, Left Out and the how-to Feel Guide.
