Top Three Things We Wish for in a Friendship – For Parents and Kids

Understanding what we want and need in a friendship is a great place to start when teaching kids how to be great friends to others. Here are our top three traits we think every friendship should have:

Joy 

We choose our friends because they bring joy into our lives! They are the ones we choose to spend our precious spare time with – a chance to unwind and let our hair down. Fun is always the name of the game! We love reflecting on special moments we have shared with friends, always with a huge smile on. 


If you give it away, you’ll end up having more. This is how we attract amazing people to our lives. This is the same for our children – they warm easily to other kids who are having a good time. 


Making Friends with Flumpy is a Moshi Story all about how Flumpy the Pluff makes friends by being the softest, squishiest, friendliest Moshling in the land! It’s a great way to teach our little ones that sharing their joy with other children is a sure-fire way to help foster genuine and happy relationships. 

Honesty

A true friend will tell you like it is, and help you be the best version of yourself.  We can often get overwhelmed with the demands of a busy day – and our friends will keep us grounded to the truth and remind us what is truly important in life. They will also be the only one that dares be the one to say it – that polka dot trouser suit is not your best look! 


Honesty from friends can lift us out of negative moods, as those around us can often help us see that things aren’t as bad as they may seem. Ava and the Woeful Welliphant is the perfect Moshi Story to encourage kids who may tend to lean towards pessimism – and steer them towards positivity. Ava, a joyful little Rainbow Dove, teaches a Woeful Welliphant called Dinky to always look on the bright side of life. 

Support

It is such a great feeling to know someone is always on your team! Friends can be great teammates, cheerleaders, and coaches. Friends often know you best – and can offer motivation and encouragement when you aren’t feeling at the top of your game. On the flipside, friends are the first in line to help celebrate the victories big and small.


Drilling in the Rain with Judder is a heartwarming tale that tells of a little Moshling Jackhammer and the help and support he gets from his friends while digging up a rainswept Moshi street. Through this Moshi Story, kids can learn the power of friendship and just how amazing it feels to be supported by those around them.
