How it began...
Our biggest inspiration.... our son. He has opened up a world of creativity for both me and my wife. And has inspired us to create one of kind, educational, fun, unique pieces of art for children and the young at heart to enjoy.
Weebee began with our blocks, pictured above. Our first edition blocks were created for our son. Who loves them by the way and is not even 20 months old and knows his whole alphabet! Seeing that he loved them, not to mention the enjoyment and educational experience that he gets with them as well, we said to ourselves why not share them with others. So we found Kickstarter! A Little bit about our blocks. Each block is a solid 2" x 2" maple block. We wanted to make these letter blocks much larger than the classic letter blocks. Making them much more fun to play with, handle and build with as well. Each block is handmade, each with their own unique characteristic. Each block has a character that corresponds with the letter with is represented in both upper and lowercase. We also clear coat each block with a non-toxic water based clear sealer.
And with all the fun we have making these blocks and the response we get from the art on each block we thought...why not make something that showcase the whole weebee block art. This lead to the creation of our weebee block poster. This poster (pictured above) lays out the whole weebee block art, in one cool frame-able piece. Which will be one of our incentives for pledging.
In additon to the blocks we decided to create these fun wall hangings. Above are a few of our weebee boards which take the characters or letters found on our weebee blocks and displays them on this 12" x 12" birch plywood panels for a fun friendly wall hanging for any childs room.
