I see. You see. OuiSi!
OuiSi is a set of 210 visually-connecting photo cards, with games and activities that foster creativity, build mindfulness and ignite wonder.
Supply update: we have under 300 copies left, but plan to replenish stock by late-summer. If you are able to place an order, that means we have a copy for you (order processing is currently taking 2-3 business days as our warehouse is very busy). Email us at email@example.com with any questions. Thanks!
The name of this inventive set of photo cards is “yes-yes” in French and Spanish, pronounced “we-see” in English. Fun, isn’t it? It’s a nod to our belief that pictures are a language almost all of us speak, regardless of age or background. For example, while the photo cards below are different, most of us can see that they look like each other.
That's the magic inside OuiSi. Each lush photo card connects visually with other cards in the deck, based on similar patterns, shapes, colors - really, anything you can imagine. There are more than two thousand connections waiting to be found, each providing a wonderful "aha!" moment.
Inside the box
On top of the 210 lush, extra-thick photo cards (kind of like stacks of polaroids), you’ll find inside OuiSi:
- Instructions for seven creative activities like Storyboarding, Eye-Spy and Dominoes. Playable solo or cooperatively.
- Instructions for two competitive games (ages 10+) that demand visual acuity and strategic thinking.
- A guide to unconstrained play and learning, and one for mindfulness.

How does OuiSi work?
First, you'll want to get the hang of visually connecting. Grab a bunch of cards and turn them photo up. Start looking for cards that look a bit like each other. Maybe the photo card of the baby's foot looks like the cactus or the hydrant. Or maybe it's as simple as two cards that both have a lot of pink. Start placing photo cards that connect side by side. After a while, try stringing a few matches together, like the series below.
Igniting young minds through connection
It's exciting when the kids in our lives share with us something that they've seen in a different light. It's their unique perspective, creativity and empathy shining through. And now we’re realizing that these abilities (selfie-taking didn't make the cut) are what our children need to thrive in an uncertain future. OuiSi can help build these muscles.
OuiSi is fun and intuitive for kids, and parents will love the flexibility, creativity and durability of the cards and activities. But OuiSi isn't JUST for kids. Families and friends will find games competitive regardless of age (just don't be surprised when you lose to your ten-year-old).
About the photos
All photography is original and mostly taken in New York City. The photos themselves capture the small marvels found everyday, from a crushed pop can to a sidewalk puddle. Purposefully, each card is an invite to set down your tech gadgets and notice your own marvelous, everyday world.

"As someone who is highly visual, I'm excited to play this game." - SwissMiss Design Blog
