⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "We couldn’t love this game more! The engagement of my kids is a delight to see; their creativity, insights and vision overflowing within the first 10 minutes." - Michelle M.
Igniting young minds
OuiSi encourages collaboration, like building off another player's Photo Card or co-creating a web of Visual Connections. It also fosters critical and abstract thinking. "How does something connect?" or "what do you see here?" – these questions are building blocks for good conversation and plant seeds of general curiosity.
Most important, OuiSi is FUN! Kids simply "get it" right away. Parents will love the flexibility of the Photo Cards and activities. In fact, you can lose or damage a few cards and it won’t affect the play of games.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I have a set at home and one for my classroom. Students are using the competitive format, their conversations are amazing! My own boys are making new games/rules. We're loving it!" - Cindy K.
Real all-ages play
Families and friends will find the games and activities engaging regardless of age. That's because Visually Connecting isn't a skill that just improves with age. Visual Connections exercise the brain, invite conversation and provide hours of surprise and delight for all generations.
The best part for families? No fighting over rules or about who's winning or losing. It just doesn't happen in OuiSi.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "A beautiful game and a strong cognitive exercise. Excellent brain therapy for old and young alike." Kim M.
About the photos
All photography is original and mostly taken in New York City. The photos capture small marvels found every day, from a crushed pop can to a sidewalk puddle. Each Photo Card is an invitation to set down your tech gadgets and notice your own marvelous, everyday world.
The name of this inventive set of Photo Cards is “yes-yes” in French and Spanish/Italian, pronounced “we-see” in English. Fun, isn’t it? It’s a nod to our belief that pictures are a global language almost all of us speak.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I bought one for my three grandchildren and gave another to my mother (78). I need to order another set for me!" - Amy C., Gifted Ed Teacher
