As a mom, I always enjoy checking out the scoop on new kid's products. Lately, I've been following a company called Wee Society. From puzzles, to journals, to phone apps, Wee Society has created quite the collection of children's products that are both fun and unique. We recently got our hands on their new Wee Alphas. I had originally thought these were just old fashioned alphabet flash cards with an artistic twist, but they are actually postcards!
ABOUT WEE ALPHAS:
Based on the award-winning Wee Alphas kids’ app, the postcards feature quirky illustrations of Biki the Buffalo, Ulysses the Unicorn, Yolanda the Yeti, and their furry, feathered, or finned friends. The cards are bound into a fold-out accordion format that can be displayed in its entirety, or they can be detached to separately display or share. Writing prompts on the back of each card will inspire any kid (or their grown-up) to pass along a super-special greeting.
ABOUT WEE SOCIETY:
Wee Society an award-winning creative studio that believes you’re never too young to develop an eye for design. They aim to spark kids’ imaginations, leading to big bright explosions of creativity. And they’re pretty sure uncontrollable giggles make the world better. With this in mind, Wee Society has created kids’ apps (available in the App Store), books, art prints, toys and still-secret stuff. Their work has been honored by the Parents’ Choice Foundation, Webby Awards and other nice folks.
The box contains a set of 26 one of a kind post cards, one for every letter of the alphabet. Each card contains an abstract illustration of an animal. Somewhere on that card is also a letter. Sometimes the animal is shaped liked the letter, and other times the letter is hidden somewhere on the animal's body. The artwork is really neat and not like anything else that you would typically come across. All 26 cards come in one piece with perforated lines between each one, so they can be separated. Since they arrive this way, you can also get creative by adding the entire set as a border in a classroom or homeschool setting, and even in your child's room if they have an animal theme going on. Tear them off at each perforation and you can pick and choose which illustration to hang, since they can easily accommodate a simple 4x6 frame.
We went ahead and decided to separate each one to use them as a flash card game. The hidden letters on each photo give it a more challenging take than your typical basic letter flash cards. Of course since these are really meant to be post cards, the back of each one has extra printed features to help send a message to that special someone. Sometimes there's a space to write a little something extra, and other times there are check boxes with words to send a fun or sweet sentiment to loved ones. Kids can send them to their friends and family or adult family members can even send them to kids. I know when I was a little girl, I loved getting mail and as a kid these would be so much fun to receive
Flash cards, post cards, artwork for the wall–Wee Alphas offer several fun possibilities. Be sure to check out Wee Society's full line of children's products! I know that we now have a few extras our own wish list!
