Thanks to Suzi Catchpole from Essential Kids for this lovely article about my new Puzzles and Memory Card Game.
Designed by a Blue Mountains mother-of-two, the products from Millions of Monkeys are not only gorgeous, they are educational and gender-neutral too. The fact that you can give Millions of Monkeys products to absolutely any kid is only one of the great things about them. They're made ethically both locally and in Turkey, and now there are some beautiful new products we'd love to tell you about, in addition to those featured on Essential Baby for toddlers last year. The new ones will appeal to an older audience who are keen to test their increasingly complex puzzle and memory skills.
There are two new 100-piece puzzles for ages 6+ and a Memory Card Game for ages 3 to 103. All have Eloise's stunning Australian-themed artworks printed on them, with enchanting colour combinations, cute critters and interesting scenes. They'd make awesome gifts for overseas friends and family.While gendered toys and games have their place in many young lives, designer and mum of two young boys Eloise Short wanted to make sure it wasn't a focus when she set out to design her products. Eloise spoke to Essential Kids about the rationale for her designs."I know kids sometimes gravitate naturally toward gendered toys and games, but there are more gendered kids products on the market than ever before, so when I started Millions of Monkeys I didn't feel like I needed to add to that. In fact I decided this was my chance to redress the imbalance ever so slightly."The puzzles are $24.95 and the Memory Cards are $14.95 from Millions of Monkeys. Stock up for all those 2017 birthday parties.
