Dream Play Structures

We have a dead space in our garden that has been driving me crazy for years. My kids are older now, so I have been researching play structures. Aren't these just amazing...?

Product Recall

For the first time in seven years, we have an unfortunate announcement to make.

It has come to our attention that a large proportion of Farm and Black & White Art Cards for Baby have been sold with a cosmetic defect. Batch 29 produced in January 2011 had some glue residue on the black side of the card, but only in the Farm and Black & White Collections.  There is no danger from the glue, as it is non-toxic, but it does give the cards the appearance of having been used, even though they are new.   Some are quite clearly affected while others may only have a drop or two of glue visible.

You can see what batch your cards are by looking on the back of the box, in the bottom right corner, outside the black line.  The batch number is printed in small white letters along with the date of manufacture.

If you have purchased a set of these cards, from us or through one of our retailers, we will be happy to replace the cards at no cost to you.  Please email us at and let us know which set you have and the extent of the defect.  

Wee Gallery takes the quality of its products very seriously and so we are taking the proactive step of reaching out to all our customers who may have received these less than perfect cards.

Christmas Countdown Calendar

I really want to make one this year. My friend made one last year that had a mix of fun activities like playdates, picnics, and popcorn, as well as little treats. I loved it and the kids did too. My daughter has been asking if we will have one this year, and since I have not been showing much competence in that department, she decided to go ahead and start making one on her own...

Have you got a favorite?

Stump Stools

"The shape of this stool tells the story of its production process and the materials its made of.
Inspired by tree stumps and their natural ring formations, this stool keeps it simple by rolling the material to its final shape."

This beautiful work (description and images too) is by designer Shir Atar.

Separated at Birth?

When I discovered the Kay Bojesen monkey online about 4-5 yrs ago, it struck me as strangely familiar. Growing up in India, we played with a very similar monkey. When I went back to India this summer, I found many of these wooden monkeys in the handicraft stores, made in Channapatna, South India, an area well known for its laquer wood toys. I wondered how this monkey that was designed 50 years ago in Denmark, made it's way into the repertoire of the Channapatna toy maker? Google offered no explanation, so it was left to my imagination. A Danish tourist left their toy monkey behind, and the craftsman picked it up and replicated it? Or was it more deliberate? We will never quite know, I guess. Any information from you is welcome!

Wee were at NYIGF

Last week we showed at the New York International Gift Show. We love going in summer because we get to enjoy New York in the sunny weather, and get to show off what we've been working on the last year. The product that I have been waiting to unveil is our new set of stamps, the Gift Notes Stamp Set. It was received very well, so we are excited. It will be available on the website after it gets to our warehouse September 15th. Will keep you posted.

Alternate Current

One of the funnest things we did in India was a workshop organized by my husband's cousin Jenny Pinto, who is a lighting designer and paper maker. The project was to make a lamp out of trash. The kids had a blast, and we all got to enjoy Jenny's amazing space. If you'd like to see more pics of Jenny's studio, go here.
