Wee Society

Introducing: A Box of Awesome Things Matching Game

You know what’s awesome? Fireflies. Lava. Tacos. Yellow. 

Wee Society’s compilation of awesome things is now available as a matching game. It features some of the world’s most universally awesome (but perhaps overlooked) things: masking tape, tunnels, elbows, nests and more. The game was designed to boost kids’ vocabulary, exercise working memory and spark silly conversations about what kids think is awesome. 

The game comes with 20 pairs of cards – including one blank pair so kids can create their own addition. What’s not included: things that are NOT awesome, like cavities, garbage or splinters. It’s designed for all ages. Beginners can take out a few pairs, and work their way up to using all 40 cards.

 

 

A Box of Awesome Things is available from book sellers nationwide, and on Amazon. Fans of awesome things: Also check out our Incomplete Book of Awesome Things (watch the book trailer) and Incomplete List of Awesome Things art print, available at art.com.

 

 

Picture Book Blogger Reviews Me: A Compendium

We’re so excited to appear on Picture Books Blogger today — she features so many of our very favorite books!

In her review of Me: A Compendium, she writes, "This is a beautifully produced, highly interactive journal that captures each child’s individuality to perfection!”

(The above image is her 8-year-old’s brilliant take on the cover.) Read the full review here. 

Wee You-Things App Free through Nov. 20

 

Teaching kids about appreciating differences has never felt more important. So we’re offering our Wee You-Things iOS app free through November 20.

As moms and dads, we’re trying to raise good little people — kids who are kind, creative, accepting and helpful. That’s why we created the Wee You-Things app. It sends the message that what makes you different is also what makes you awesome — because if kids feel good about themselves, they’re less likely to put others down. And hopefully that’s one small step toward a world with more kindness, and less bullying.

For kids ages 3-7, the app celebrates what we call “you-things” — those little and big things that, together, make you, you. Ruth has a purple tooth. Brad has two dads. Little Dot gets scared a lot. Niels has orange wheels. After meeting 22 quirky and colorful characters, kids are asked, “What’s your you-thing?,” and get to become part of the story.

We encourage you to check it out with your kids. Use it to spark conversations. Share a giggle. And a big hug.

Start Sticker-ing with Wee Society

 

Now Wee Society fans can send iMessages that are lots more colorful and way more fun than a simple text.

The new Wee Society iMessage app by Stickapax — including 24 animated and static stickers — is now available for $1.99 in the App Store.

Many of the stickers feature favorite characters from the Wee You-Things app. You can make someone’s day with Kyle (who has a ginormous smile), surprise them with Ruth (who has a purple tooth), and shoot them a “when it doubt hug it out” or “easy peasy lemon squeezy” at just the right moment.

Happy sticker-ing!

 

Three New Ways to Spark Imaginations

 

You guys. Big news! We’ve created three new Wee Society products with our friends at Clarkson Potter (a division of Penguin Random House), now available at your favorite booksellers. 

Me: A Compendium: A Fill-in Journal for Kids was designed to help kids capture nearly everything that’s uniquely rad about them. With design-savvy, yet completely kid-friendly illustrations, they’re asked to draw or write about a bunch of interesting things — like what their hair looks like, what their band name would be, what they’d bring to outer space, and how they feel about lightning, lizards and pickles. There may or may not be a place for super secret stuff inside the book jacket. Whether kids complete their entire compendium on a rainy day, or finish it over a year, it’ll become a treasure to look back on and smile.

Check out the trailer.

Order from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Powell's.

 

 

 

An Incomplete Book of Awesome Things celebrates some of the world’s most universally awesome (but perhaps overlooked) things: masking tape, tunnels, lava, argyle, elbows, and more. The incomplete compilation -- featuring beautifully minimal, vibrant illustrations -- was designed to boost kids’ vocabulary, share giggles, and spark conversations. Kids decide what’s awesome and what’s not — mauve? kiwis? snakes? — and come up with their own additions to the never finished list.

Based on the award-winning Wee Alphas kids’ app, Wee Alphas: 26 A to Z Postcards, from Angelfish to Zebra are created with hidden letters to find. The cards 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 detached to separately display or share. Writing prompts on the back of each card will inspire any kid (or grown-up) to pass along a super-special greeting.
