I love lyric games because they are really great for centering yourself. These are tiny enough to be able to carry anywhere.

As a parent trying to teach a little guy about being aware of his own body and the world around him (and as someone who struggles with anxiety) these little games have brought a lot of light to our household.

… and of course my toddler loves the chippy game.

Thank you for the comment ๐Ÿ’– Iโ€™m so glad these wee zines bring a little light to you and your family. And who wouldnโ€™t love a Chippy game ๐Ÿ˜†

These are so sweet and enjoyable. The Chippy Edition is my favourite!

Aw thank you! I'm quite fond. The Chippy Edition certainly gets the most laughs! So glad reception was warm enough for me to make Volume 2. And I'm hoping for a Volume 3 next year :D
