The Incy Wincies characters, named Buzz, Dottie, Crickee, and Bella are the cornerstone of my company. I have incorporated them into my products for the purpose of educating, entertaining, and encouraging children.
The characters were created several years ago for a board game intended simply to entertain my grandchildren. But the appeal for the game and characters soon grew. Children and parents wanted a copy. And so, the journey began.
Drawing and tinkering has always been a passion. As a youngster, I would draw action figures and superheroes then make them out of paper, cardboard, glue, wood, and anything else I could get my hands on. This favorite pastime consumed much of my time and would prove to come in very handy.
Fast-forward roughly 25 years…
It’s the PC age – and the timing couldn’t be better! Windows and Mac, Photoshop and Adobe. Tools of the trade that would help me bring my vision to life.
Fast-forward several years more…
With renewed vigor, passion, and updated software 😁, designing and developing games, toys, and educational products is what now consumes me.
The Incy Wincies characters and products have evolved over time, as well as the mission. So now, with new tools at my disposal, I’ve been able to design colorful and informative posters that help bring awareness to children to environmental concerns, or at the very least to help give them a basic understanding of what an environmental issue is.
In addition, with the help of professional educators, moms, and yes…children, our team has put together an early childhood learning line that will help children acquire foundational academic and critical thinking skills.
I’m sure you can see a pattern here. Whether it’s about educating on the environment, or teaching academic fundamentals – The Incy Wincies are being used as a vehicle for learning.
I can only hope that this website’s content will continue to inspire, encourage, and teach children and adults alike.
