Did you know that babies develop in so many ways during their first five years that it dwarfs everything they learn over the rest of their lives? Neither did Wee Gallery until 2002, when they had their son and studied everything we could get our hands on about babies’ development, that’s when we discovered that…
• Newborns can only see as far as 12 to 15 inches away (around the length of your forearm and hand)
• They are most taken with their parents’ faces
• They are drawn to simple but repeating geometric shapes in black and white
• At around 6 months of age, they begin to recognize animal forms, later calling them by name
As a graphic designer with a background in Chemistry, Botany and Zoology, Surya along with Dave who was a teacher, was fascinated by the idea of helping our baby’s brain develop by literally playing with visuals. They create toys that are simple, clever, and help you discover the beauty of connecting with the little people that are most important to us.
Wee Gallery toys and products are made from sustainable materials and follow ethical standards of manufacturing.
