Happy 82nd Birthday, Eric Carle!

Yesterday was Eric Carle's 82nd birthday! In honor of this special event, we've been a bunch of Very Busy Spiders over the past couple of weeks. We've gathered a handful of the coolest and most creative Eric Carle inspired toys to show our love for his work and give your Psychoartist something to exercise their creative muscles.

Part of the reason we love Mr. Carle so much is because of his ability to make learning creative and fun. He once said, "With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held."

We also dig Eric's artistic style. His use of collage technique on hand-painted paper is often complemented with interactive elements like twinkling lights, cricket noises, and artwork that is fun for your little one to play with. His appeal to all of the senses will engage your Psychobaby for hours. Head over to our Eric Carle Shop and check out our toys, books, art supplies and more!
