Incy Wincies mission is threefold – to entertain, to act as a vehicle for learning, and to encourage children, with an emphasis on education and the environment.
Who or What are The Incy Wincies?…
Now, in case you hadn’t noticed – The Incy Wincies are anthropomorphic cartoon characters (a cross between human and insect) who represent both worlds. As human, each has a unique comedic character and particular skill set. As insect, each plays a crucial role in our ecosystems. Because of these attributes, we think the characters can communicate environmental issues to kids looking through the lens of both worlds.
Providing & Educating…
Children are the future, and they depend on us! Our obligation as adults is to provide them with the basic necessities, such as food, shelter, and clothing. But, it’s also our responsibility to provide them with basic foundational academic skills, such as reading, writing, and arithmetic. Further, keeping them up to date on current events, is in our opinion essential. The current polluted condition of earth’s oceans and climate, as well as changing landscape are perfect examples.
Bringing awareness to children to environmental issues…
Children’s brains are like sponges. They absorb information quickly and at a very early age. As such, we should teach them the importance of our ecosystems, recycling, conserving water, and the role of pollinators as soon as they’re able to comprehend. While we’re at it, let’s also teach them how pollution, such as sea dumping, oil spills, and fossil fuel burning affects our planet.
It’s obvious that earth is in distress. We’re experiencing longer lasting more destructive hurricanes, as well as the number of them. Alarming rising sea levels and melting ice sheets are other indicators. More importantly, all of the above are contributing factors to global warming and climate change. And, if not soon addressed, children will inherit near irreversible deterioration of ecosystems. This is why we feel environmental issues that face our planet should be explained in the simplest form, and at the earliest appropriate age.
Kids love visuals…
Visuals in the form of colorful illustrations, cartoons, and educational shorts are great methods to teach kids. There is a plethora of videos on the web that address ecosystems, pollution, and other environmental topics. Our collection of kids environmental posters are designed to do the same. They touch on issues, such as pollution, oil spills, and deforestation…just to name a few. And, we will soon post our own educational shorts. Starring, you guessed it – “The Incy Wincies.”
We love to see and hear children smile and laugh. It’s our goal to keep them entertained and encouraged. Education, however, is paramount. To that end, we strive to make a difference in their lives by providing both fun and practical educational products. And in this age of environmental problems and uncertainty, reinforcing an understanding of the issues that our planet faces is key to making that difference. Educating our children at the earliest possible age will help achieve that goal. We hope that The Incy Wincies messages resonate with children and adults alike.
