Howdy all! Back in May I started working with this great little plush toy company called Zylie & Friends (working two jobs being the reason I’ve been so sparse, haha) and this week, we launched our Kickstarter to help fund production of our third toy!
Our mission’s a seemingly simple one - unplugging play. New technologies are certainly a wonderful aid in learning and developing motor and logical problem-solving skills, but screen time has seriously started to dominate (especially as more and more households NEED guardians to be working to keep afloat). There can always be too much of a good thing, and we’re trying to help encourage more unstructured play, which helps develop creative problem-solving skills in addition to others - something that’s lacking especially as school programs for the arts, music, and even home ec are being cut. You can check out the website for more info.
So… please consider supporting our Kickstarter!
It would mean the world to me, that’s for sure~ If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ping me - or Matt and MB (through the KS), as they could probably give you the most accurate answers. ;D
*please note that this post is scripted by me alone, and while I AM technically affiliated with Zylie, I am but a simple permalance designer. woop woop
A great small company with a wonderful product and message. Check them out and support if you can.
