description:
The Child Affective Facial Expression Set (CAFE) is a collection of photographs taken of 2- to 8-year-old children (M = 5.3 years; R = 2.7 – 8.7 years) posing for 6 emotional facial expressions—sadness, happiness, surprise, anger, disgust, and fear—plus a neutral face. The full set features 90 female models and 64 male models (27 African American, 16 Asian, 77 Caucasian/European American, 23 Latino, and 11 South Asian). With the exception of surprise, children were asked to pose for each expression with their mouths open and with their mouths closed. Surprised faces were only posed with their mouths open. Open mouth disgusted faces generally included a tongue protrusion. In total, we had 154 child-models pose each of these 7 expressions. Not all children were able to successfully pose for all 7 expressions, so all unsuccessful attempts were eliminated from the set. The result is 1192 total photographs. Demographic information and validity/reliability data from 100 untrained adults on each face in the set is available in a sortable Excel file under "Materials." Please note that the images in the CAFE set are copyright protected and cannot be published (including in journals, book chapters, etc).
