When Lucy was little she was grumpy.
We tried everything to soothe her: gripe water, belly massages, wearing dumb stuff as hats - but nothing would consistently help. We couldn’t find anything to be our go-to problem solver. Until THE BUG.
The Ladybug Art Card from Wee Gallery, referred to loving by my husband as The Bug - as in “Where did THE BUG go, she is freaking out and I don’t know what to do!!” became a lifesaver for us when we were new, inexperienced parents. It came in a package with five other gorgeously illustrated cards, and we brought them wherever we went - but none of them were as big a hit as The Bug. She set her sights on that ladybug, and only had eyes for it. We brought it everywhere, conveniently propping it up on couch cushions at friend’s houses, leaned it against water glasses at restaurants, and found a way to wedge it into the seat-back in our car to make sure she could always see it. She loved it, so we loved it, and I even considered getting that darn bug tattooed on me so we were never without it! (Lack of sleep can do weird things to new parents)
Wee Gallery was conceived of by a graphic designer and her husband following the birth of their first child. After endless research about baby’s brains, and their reaction to stimuli, they decided that it would be best to draw simple images in black market on stark white paper. The contrast images were a hit, and an idea was born! They began to develop images together as a family, and as their first child grew older he began to design images for his younger sister to enjoy as well - and thank goodness they did, or Lucy would still be cranky!
As a company, Wee Gallery has continued to develop their product line in new, exciting ways by experimenting with nesting dolls, temporary wall stickers, stuffed toys, and wallpaper. Most important for us, though, are the temporary tattoos! Those little beauties mean that Lucy can bring her favorite, friendly illustrations along with her wherever she goes (and that’s much better than my desperate idea of tattooing THE BUG on me so many months earlier!).
Wee Gallery wants to share the sweetness, magic, and beauty of their line with all of our bluum families. Just enter HERE for the chance to win a Wee Gallery package designed for baby or big kid, and get ready to welcome the whimsy of Wee Gallery into your home!
