eeBoo Founder, President, and Creative Director Mia Galison has ensured, since 1994, that each product engages, delights, challenges, and informs. The 2022 Collection does that and more.
What could be more engaging or challenging than getting everyone down on the floor to ponder which extra-large puzzle piece goes where? Young children develop their skills of careful observation, spatial reasoning, and patience by piecing together a puzzle.
“We believe that being able to tell a story,” offers Galison, “or to express your feelings and speak up for yourself and others are basic skills that need to be nourished throughout one’s life. Our products teach and reinforce these skills while providing opportunities to connect with others.”
Legendary in toy circles is eeBoo’s record of sustainably sourced puzzles and games. Once again, the 2022 Collection boasts game pieces made with recycled materials and printed on FSC-certified paper using vegetable-based inks. In stock now, these four puzzles and games – like all their products — celebrate the gloriousness of diversity and difference.
