WHAT'S NEW & WHAT'S COOKING
In 2020, will a calendar become your child's new close friend?
Traditional calendars are boring to a young mind: religious observances, stock visuals, and dates, dates, dates. Something to be ignored.
What if the calendar was an invitation to days packed with fun, an adventure every month, and an invitation to discoveries of a lifetime?
Give your child a calendar that will make today fun and the year memorable.
Our Colours of India calendar features 12 iconic Indian shades
Each month is about a desi colour like "Basanti", "Morpankhi", and "Kapish". Some you knew already, and some that you'll discover.
It's astonishing what you can learn from one little colour. There are quirky stories ("Where did Khaki come from?"). There are tidbits of facts (like the one about denim jeans). You can go on a little treasure hunt ("find a flower this spring").
Each month's shade is accompanied by all of this. But that's not all: there are little secrets shyly peeking out on each page. Spot them, scan them with your phone, and unlock your bonus treat. It could be a game, a song, or a challenge.
This is not just a calendar, but a "CALENDAR PLUS". A 21st century mix of online and offline. (You'll see why when you see it!)
And what about the dates?
No, we haven't forgotten the most important purpose of a calendar. And we've made it even more fun. Each month is packed with days that a child would love to know about. Arguably the most important day in the year is Icecream-For-Breakfast Day? (Heard of it? Now you have.) The calendar marks important events, birthdays of legendary people, and quirky days (like days for left-handers and vegetarians). In all, there are 100 activities across the 12 months.
We did say it was going to be a memorable year.
A memorable year needs a memorable notebook
With so much happening each month, wouldn't it be lovely to keep note of everything you did? A child can also use the calendar's space to log it all. Respond to the nudges and make a log of your 2020.
Where can we get the calendar?
