Wee Society has released its first set of wood blocks—designed to spark generations of imaginations.
"I just gave my old ABC blocks to my own kids—and they've been coming up with all kinds of ways to play with them," said Jill Robertson, Co-Founder, Wee Society. "So we created an heirloom set that would inspire that kind of creativity. Solve a silly face puzzle. Stack and re-stack a bunch of characters. Think of something awesome and build it. And it all looks pretty good sitting on your coffee table."
"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." We salute you, Dr. Seuss.
We're thrilled to announce that we've partnered with Art.com, the largest online art retailer, to help achieve our goal of bringing Wee Society to walls everywhere.
With over 130 designs in 16 size and print options, you can enliven any room with your favorite quirky characters from Wee Know What's Awesome, Wee Alphas and Wee You-Things, our newest story celebrating the big and small things that make each of us special (stay tuned—a super-fun new app is coming soon!)
"Wee Society's prints are delightful in every sense of the word," said Ivy Ross, chief merchandising officer, Art.com. "We couldn't be happier to have such an imaginative and fun addition to Art.com Kids."
And we couldn't be happier to be there. A big thanks to the team at Art.com!
Our friends at KinderTown just released an awesome new educational tool called Parent Power Packs. What's even more exciting is that they chose Wee Alphas for their Letters and Sounds Power Pack, pairing our app with other activities to support your kiddo getting ready to read.
Each Power Pack is a mini teaching guide tailored to help parents teach their kids important skills by combining mobile app play with fun, educational experiences that don't involve technology at all. We love that.
Thanks to KinderTown for including us in such a wonderful tool! Get the free KinderTown app and check out all the Power Packs.

Cool Mom Tech, one of our favorite resources for tech tips, named their most highly recommended apps from 2012 for little kids and preschoolers – and Wee Alphas is at the top of the list.
Here's what they had to say about it: "[The Wee Alphas] app is just wonderful. Not only does it look clean and beautiful, it really teaches helpful skills from letter recognition to vocabulary and even those fine motor skills you get from stealing Mommy's iPad."
Thanks, Cool Mom Tech!
