Hey,

It’s the World Emoji Day and Miko 2 is proud to host a brand new set of Mikojis starting today. The new Mikojis are live and available on your robot. Try it out, launch the talent right away.

Children experience a wide range of emotions on a daily basis but struggle to express those feelings. It’s likely they aren’t sure what words to pick. They are able to manage their emotions better when they can name and express what they are feeling. That’s exactly where Mikoji can help, and it’s so much fun that it’s one of Miko 2’s most loved talents.

What’s new with Mikojis?

We reached out to our little friends and asked them to help us design the next generation of Mikojis. Their submissions helped us select the most loved Mikoji expressions.

It wouldn’t be far from the truth if we say these kids inspired us to craft the latest Mikojis. We hope you keep loving Mikojis in their new avatar- vibrant colors and expressions inspired by you. Keep expressing yourselves!

Where do emojis come from?

Do you know the difference between emojis and emoticons? Well, for starters, they are not the same thing. Emoticons are simple texts such as 🙂 or 🙁 for describing facial expressions. The term ‘emoticon’ (short for emotion-icon) was coined by Scott Fahlman, a computer scientist at Carnegie Mellon University in 1992, to help convey emotions while sending e-mails and during chats. Emojis are nothing but actual pictures which depict facial expressions, objects, symbols and were first created by a Japanese communications firm, NTT DoCoMo, in the late 1990s.

Wondering why are we telling you this? Well, because we are super excited to announce that Miko 2 is set to take your child’s experience with expressions to a totally new level. Introducing Mikojis, which is now live in Miko’s Game Hub. The naughty robot has turned into a total drama queen/king (well, where Miko comes from, there is no concept of boy or girl) and is ready to put on a fun show for its little friends.

To get the best experience while playing Mikoji, make sure that you place Miko on the floor. To open the game, simply go to Miko’s Game Hub. Once inside the game, go to the Mikoji you want with the help of the arrow buttons on the touch pad and press the select button and watch Miko go crazy with expressions! To exit the game, press the triangular back button and select “yes” when the pop-up to exit the game appears on the screen.

Every language has a vocabulary to describe not just the objects in the world but emotions too. Helping your child identify and label the different emotions that they may experience with the help of a vocabulary gives them the power to express their feelings in a healthy way and manage their emotions better. It also helps them develop empathy to identify other’s feelings and socialize better.

Mikoji is a fun and engaging way to teach your little one about different emotions and expressions at an early age and voice them effectively. So go on and explore Mikoji with Miko 2! Let us know about how your little one liked the game in the comments section below.
