Twenty years ago, eeBoo’s founder Mia Galison made the decision to integrate and embrace both work and family. She created a unique journey for herself, her husband and her three children.
Although clearly challenging at times, Galison remained true to her vision and created products that were to be regarded as “gifts” and could be used as materials for play and learning that both fostered and cultivated young children’s creativity and imagination.
There is no other company I have come across that offers the traditional supplies in such a beautiful and meaningful way as eeBoo. Galison works closely with talented designers and notable children’s book illustrators to make each product as child friendly and appealing as possible, without pigeon-holing the product in “typical” child style (read: chunky, over sized, and primary colors).
Galison has much to celebrate and be proud of as she reaches this wonderful twenty years with her company. She says, “I am proud of the children we have raised and the meaningful assortment of products we have made, and I am especially glad that what we offer embodies our values as a family and as parents.”
Two iconic and more traditional games I fondly remember growing up included a game of BINGO! and sidewalk games, drawn with colored chalk. I would play outside for hours on the grey pavement, hopping around to a game of “London Calling” or “Hopscotch”. When it was raining, my brother and I would nestle inside and bring out the board games, which almost always included a game of BINGO!
I love eeBoo’s versions of the two- marrying the tradition of childhood games gone by and the beautiful eeBoo artistry and aesthetic we have come to know and love.
Congrats eeBoo! What childhood game would you like to try?
