Everyone knows that one of a Brit's favorite topics of discussion is the weather. With that in mind, the design team at UK based Corby Tindersticks have put a new spin on the forecast with their Interactive Felt Weather Map. The set includes eight personable weather symbols which may be moved around the velcro dots on a map of the UK and Ireland. All components are printed onto American made felt using eco-friendly water-based inks in Wales, and then hand sewn in the Corby Tindersticks studio in Birmingham, England.
The weather elements included with the Interactive Felt Weather Map, are “quirky little characters” in and of themselves. Each symbol takes on a life of its own, prompting kids and adults alike to discuss and predict the weather in a fun-filled fashion. This endearingly educational set is an artistic addition to the room decor of aspiring meteorologists, and the folks at Corby Tindersticks designed it as a lighthearted approach to the “rubbish British weather.”
Note: The Interactive Felt Weather Map is not suitable for children under age 3 due to small parts.
