Funky Fish Feelings

Exploring Oceans of Emotions!

If you’ve ever pressed your nose to an aquarium and been disappointed by the blank expressions returned, then grab your snorkel and plunge with us into the burbling watery world of Funky Fish Feelings!

These are fish with attitude, and some might bear an uncanny resemblance to people you know! Which one are you today?

  • The flummoxed flounder?
  • The cranky crab?
  • What about the despondent dolphin or the shy shark?

These 48 quirky critters of the deep can be used in similar ways to The Bears and Stones ...have feelings too! But each card also features a cute little seahorse named Farr Lapp, who plays the role of observer. Having an observer as a witness creates different ways of building conversations, and can turn a two-person dialogue into a ‘trialogue’.

  •  What do you think the seahorse is seeing? 
  • Do you think the seahorse could have a different perspective from yours? 
  • If the seahorse knows the fish really well, might this change his response to the emotion displayed?  

Funky Fish Feelings will find many creative uses in the hands of teachers and human service workers, and the cards are ideal for icebreakers, storytelling, family sculpting exercises and therapeutic conversations. So whether you're sailing on the high seas or paddling in the shallows, take a dip below the foam and say hello to these fabulous aquatic personalities!

A fun new card set designed to help people of all ages explore Oceans of Emotions. Funky Fish Feelings features 48 vibrant and unique cards, including 47 expressive fish, and one contemplative seahorse.
