Wee Gallery sent Luther some black and white goodies…
Luther excitedly helped me unpack the Wee Gallery parcel from America. Once he’d pulled out the wadding, he swiftly grabbed the organic cotton, penguin cushion and carried it around gleefully.
I love eco conscious products and the Wee Gallery does its best to use minimal packaging and to use biodegradable materials. They use Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) card stock in their cards and soy based inks, and the wall graphics are made with Polypropylene, rather than PVC, so no nasty toxins are released into the nursery.
The Wee Gallery is a small family run business. The in-house designs are strong and simple, and really cute. The designs are created with the fact in mind that newborns can only see 12 to 15 inches away, and that they can more easily identify black and white geometric shapes.
The art cards have been a huge hit with Luther, I thought he might be too old to enjoy them but he’s particularly taken with the panda card and he walks around the place calling out ‘mamma’ at it. I think he thinks he’s saying panda! I’ve been holding them up for him and repeating the names and he’s been watching me carefully.
The stacking dolls came in a lovely natural wooden box, with a sliding lid. Tucked in a little bag amongst straw like shredded paper they are exciting to open. Hand painted in Russia they are endearing and would look lovely in any nursery. Luther cleared liked their tactile feel and they fitted nicely in his tiny hands. I loved stacking dolls when I was small and I think he’ll enjoy then even more when he’s able to open them up on his own.
The organic penguin pillow is ethically manufactured in India. The design is really cute and Luther stares at it with interest. It’s sort of like a soft toy and looks really friendly sitting in his bed.
The Wee Gallery also sell blankets, books, mobiles, prints, and other toys and have stockists in the UK. I think they make really unusual gifts that would please parents and baby.
Luther and I were sent these products to review. Thoughts are my own!
