Artist, maker, and Philadelphia preschool teacher, Kate Leibrand, is the creative force behind TWEE – a company specializing in handmade, small batch, sidewalk chalk. The name TWEE stems from Kate’s art school critiques; after repeatedly being told her work was too “twee” or “cute” Kate began to wonder – What was so wrong with that? Instead of changing her aesthetic, Kate embraced it and launched TWEE from her kitchen. Today TWEE’s products are sold worldwide and are designed to perfectly fit little ones’ hands, helping to increase a child’s grip strength and fine motor skills while encouraging creative play and imaginative making.
TWEE’s Solar System: Mason’s Planets chalks are out of this world! Mars, Venus, Earth, Mercury, Neptune and Pluto have two layers of color – an outer core and an inner core. Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus have three layers of color – an inner core, outer core and crust. Best part: $2 from every sale of Mason’s Planets will go to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to support Autism research.
