G’s first introduction to Wee Gallery’s Art Cards was through Citrus Lane, I have a few reviews for Citrus Lane that you can find in my archive, and we received the Faraway Friends Collection. Art Cards are high contrast black and white images for babies from 0-12 months. You get 6 images that were created from hand-painted originals and they are printed using non-toxic ink on extremely sturdy and recycled board book material. One side has a black background with a white image and the other side is the opposite, a white background with a black image.
The Faraway Friends Collection contains a Koi Fish from Japan, a Camel from Africa, a Walrus from the Antarctic, a Tiger from India, a Yak from Tibet and a Kangaroo from Australia. These are Baby G’s favorite to play with. If I lay down a box mixed with toys and books, he first pick is always his Art Cards. He loves to roll around on the floor looking at the images and play as 7 month babies do. If he can, G will spend the majority of his play time doing something with his cards. We also use them as a goal when we are working with him on his crawling. These cards can do no wrong in our eyes!
All of the collections identify the animal and the Farm collection shows what type of sound the animal makes. There are multiple ways for the baby to learn about different animals, which is great for the stage that G is currently in. He loves hearing farm animal noises. If we hold up two of the animals from the Faraway Collection and ask him where a specific animal is, he can now select the correct animal.
We are traveling for the holidays and I just purchased two more collections for our flights. I picked out the Farm and Woodlands collection. The Farm comes with a Bee, Cow, Hen, Horse, Pig and a Sheep. The Woodlands comes with a Deer, Fox, Hedgehog, Mouse, Raccoon and a Woodpecker.
We absolutely love our Wee Gallery Art Cards and look forward to adding the other collections as well!
There are seven collections in all and you can purchase them for $12.95 at www.weegallery.com.
