Is there an age for Kids of the Wool
The original Kids of the Wool universe is intended for all children from 3 to 9 years old. With a variety of graphic styles, Kids of the Wool is for everyone: girls, boys and parents.
The idea is to share moments with the family, far from the screens.
Why is it Grandma and Grandpa?
In addition to offering support to parents, they are an endless source of hugs and kisses for the child. These initial expressions of tenderness quickly deepen and intensify the emotional relationship between the grandparents and the child.
It has been proven that children who have the opportunity to enjoy this affection will develop more self-confidence because they will feel loved and valued by significant people other than their parents.
Each of them must maintain a specific status and role.
The presence of the grandparents helps to anchor the child in his or her roots. “They are the bearers of the past, of the family history. They are the ones who have the family photos, sometimes also the family house, full of memories”.
What is a grandfather?
The grandfather is often less stressed and more available than the father because he no longer works and has more time to spend with his loved ones.
It is common for the grandchild to spend a weekend or vacation with his or her grandfather.
This is an opportunity for the grandfather to pass on know-how, especially if he lives in the country and is interested in manual activities.
These moments are very precious because they will remain engraved in the child’s memory.
What is a grandmother?
Having a granny, grandma or nanou is very important for your child.
A granny is a reserve of hugs… but not only!
It also has a role of transmission and helps the child to be part of a family lineage that reassures him.
What separates the old from the new grannie? The mixture of tradition and exception.
“Tradition” because being a grandmother means making cakes, jams, teaching her to flip a pancake in a pan with a coin in her hand, telling her the history of her family…
“The exception” because with his grandmother, he does things that are out of the ordinary.
Because it’s sweet, because it reminds us of childhood and because it’s a gift from nature to mankind.
But also because it is a demanding craft that reconciles the past and the present, and whose manufacture requires time, therefore patience.
Moreover, knitting, embroidery and everything that concerns the work of wool is a strong symbol of transmission between generations and this is not learned from books but by experience, by showing, by explaining.
It is the exchange, the sharing, the slowness of a work which is done little by little, thread after thread.
It is the return to the wisdom of the ancients, a symbol of altruism in this world dominated by individualism.
And with this renewed interest in crafts, DIY and manual work in a broader sense, returning to touch, to the sensory, seems to us an obvious choice.
