Games and activities for children aged 5 to 15, offering screen-less fun experiences and research-based tools to help talk about and understand children’s mental wellbeing and feelings in a safe and supportive way.
Our Happy Heads Card Game is the perfect mental wellbeing game for your home. It is developed to prompt you to talk about, or act upon, emotions and feelings that you will come across during the fun and interactive activities included.
It aligns with current curriculums and can easily be implemented in your weekly practices as well as a stand alone resource. It is the perfect foundation for happier and healthier children who will be able to communicate their emotions.
We aim to help children connect with their feelings through play, creativity, and storytelling. Access our Social Emotional Learning platform, information about our games, research, resources, blog, and services through the buttons below.

“Thank you so much for your club, as fun as it was, it still helped me with my anger issues. The club gave me thoughts that made me feel better.”
Play Therapist, Ty Hafan Children's Hospice
"I would highly recommend this game to any one working therapeutically with children and young people either to use as a whole intervention plan or as an easy to turn to ad hoc tool. It's a safe way to discuss important aspects of health and wellbeing.”
Meet the Beasties
These friendly but strange looking creatures are our Beasties. Their personalities represent different emotions that we can relate to and will probably come across at some point in our lives. The Beasties make it easier for us to talk about these feelings so that they make more sense.
Our Beasties are here for you to learn to talk about life, your feelings, and give you great advice if you are struggling. Through games, activities, and imagination, they provide a fun and joyful way to learn and talk about our emotions. The Beasties encourage meaningful conversations and important talking points that otherwise can be tricky to talk about, and their happy approach increases the chances of your children opening up.
So put your Happy Heads on, and come join us for the Beastiest adventure of all time!
