Humans talk more than any other animal. But that doesn’t mean that we all know how to have a conversation. Talking is a form of communication in which we exchange information: one speaks, the other listens and replies, and so on. In Wodibow we think that if we learn to talk and listen we can live together better. That is why we have created Chalking About. A set of wooden speech bubbles and magnets to simulate conversations. You can show kindness, anger or thought according to the forms of the bubbles and use the chalk to write thoughts, answers or ideas that you have, after you have listened, of course.
The shapes of the bubbles help teach children and adults that, sometimes, it is better to think and not speak, or to reply in a kind manner rather than in anger; in short, to develop empathy and assertiveness.
Chalking About contains 6 beech-wood pieces coated with black chalkboard paint, and 6 sticks of chalk in assorted colors. It comes in a 14 cm x 14 cm x 19 cm box that weighs 0,52 kg.
