Have better conversations
with the kids in your life
Sometimes it's hard to get to know your kids, nieces, nephews or grandkids. You love them dearly, but you hardly know them! They want to tell you more - you just need to ask the right questions.
Designed to stop those one-word answers, CheckIN Cards open up a world of imagination, great ideas, and positive mental health while encouraging communication. It's a chance to share your experiences and find out how much you have in common.
Created to colour-in these fun illustrated cards open up conversations with multiple choice and emoji's (smiley faces). Make a child feel special by sharing a card with them today. Get an insight into their dreams by taking the time to listen to their ideas.
They can return the cards to you in the brightly coloured envelope or share with you one on one. In just a few precious moments you will create and build your connection to this special child.
The inspiration behind the cards
When Nic's daughter Jaz was away interstate for school their conversations over the phone or via video call were not the same as having her around. The chats they had in the car, while they were out on weekends and those questions before bed, were gone. Jaz loved emoji's, multiple choice, colouring in and of course dreaming big. These ingredients were poured with love into elaborately illustrated letters, which Jaz loved to receive but didn't always answer. So Nic set about simplifying down to a postcard size with one topic they could talk about. Nic also sent these to other children, who came up with surprising, creative and very specific answers. The conversations were lively, and the kids felt super special, always asking for another card.
A love of illustration began for Nic at aged 8, chatting to her Mum in the kitchen. She wanted to be able to draw anything, create cool products and beautiful books. Still working on her big dreams, Nic created CheckIN Cards and with the first collection launches her whimsical illustration style, inspired by her 80s childhood.
Jaz remains an important member of the team, her creativity, and caring heart mean she is never short of ideas!
