HELPING BABIES BLOOM
by providing them with effective visual stimuli and interactive experiences ideal for their development.
HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS
for baby and child — thoughtfully designed and crafted with natural and organic materials.
RESPECTING OUR PLANET
by striving for sustainable and eco-friendly business practices, materials, and ethical manufacturing.
Wee Gallery collections are both educational and artful. They go hand-in-hand in our book. Over the years we have informally worked with a mix of child development experts who have introduced Wee Gallery merchandise to their own children. We recently created a more formalized group of advisors to ensure we stay informed about advances in the area of infant development so our products can maintain high standards as educational tools. Similarly, each of our collections’ designs must pass the test of, “Will this equally enchant both children and design obsessed parents?”
Wee products engage children for years. Though our products are designed with infant development in mind, we have found that they have a much longer lifespan in children’s lives. So while infants are mesmerized by the high-contrast patterns used in our Art Cards’ whimsical hand-painted images, the six month old loves to focus on a card’s single figure, and the two year old is able to call them by name. Similarly, our stroller toys have bold high-contrast images that engage babies and toddlers, while the back of each card has a related question about the image as a way to engage toddlers and a-bit-older kids in a game of “wee spy” while out and about.
Wee Gallery strives to use eco-friendly materials. That means we minimize use of plastics and avoid materials that may have dangerous effluents involved in their production, such as PVC. Our printed paper products are made from FSC-certified paper and soy-based inks. Our cotton products are produced with GOTS-certified organic cotton, which means no chemical softeners. (That’s why it takes a few washes for our swaddles to become super soft.) While we do currently use plastic wrap to keep products safe while in transit, we are always looking for a better option.
Wee Gallery partners only with manufacturers that will abide by a code of conduct that includes ecologically and socially sustainable practices. They must agree to pay their workers a fair wage and provide good working conditions. Among our global partners are our paper product manufacturer is ISO 9000 certified and consistently earns industry awards for good overall practices, as well as our textiles factory in India, which is a GOTS-certified manufacturer of organic cotton textiles.
Wee Gallery products are made with babies and their parents in mind. As a result, we are committed to the safety of our products, for babies, for parents and for the environment.
All our products are manufactured in small runs by trusted partners. There is no lead or Pthalates in any of our products.
ART CARDS, LEARNING CARDS, LACING CARDS, FLOOR PUZZLES, AND STROLLER CARDS
Wee Gallery Cards are off-set printed in China. They are manufactured from FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) Art Board printed with Soy-based inks.
SOFT TOYS, PLAYMATS, ACTIVITY PADS, RATTLES, SWADDLES, AND ALL COTTON ITEMS
All cotton, cotton canvas, and linen items made by Wee Gallery are made in a GOTS certified facility in South India. These fabrics are 100% organic cotton and linen. Many products contain 100% organic cotton fill as well. The products which have polyester fiber fill is OEKO TEX certified for baby products. We select this for certain products because it is baby safe and is more functional for washing certain products than cotton fill.
Wee Gallery Books are manufactured in a number of different ways. 32 Ways Books are off-set printed and manufactured from FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) paper and printed with Soy-based inks. All other books on our site are published by Quarto Publishing UK and manufactured by them. The Soft Books, Slide and Play Books, Sound Books, and Bath Books are all licensed to Quarto.
