Backstory…

The Incy Wincies characters, named Buzz, Dottie, Crickee, and Bella are the cornerstone of our company. They have been incorporated into all of our 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.

Who or What are The Incy Wincies?…

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.

Bringing awareness to children to environmental issues…

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.”

In Summary…

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.
