We just love it!

My daugther (4 years old) loves all the beautiful details of the cards and we are playing the game everyday! It‘s empathetic, funny & colorful❤️

Ein Spiel für ALLE Familien!

Ein Klassiker im neuen Gewand. Das Quartettspiel ist perfekt für Groß und Klein. Habe es bereits ein paar Mal mit meinem Neffen (9 Jahre) gespielt und es macht einfach viel Spaß.
Begeistert hat mich auch das Design und die vielen Konstellationen von Familien. Ein Spiel, das es so sonst nirgendwo gibt, wie ich finde.
Ich habe auch gleich 5 Sets auf einmal gekauft, da es die perfekte Geschenkidee für Kind und Kegel ist. :-)

Richtig süß

Wir haben das Spiel jetzt bereits ein paar Mal gespielt im Rahmen der Familie und es macht wirklich Spaß und ist so süß!
Die Regeln sind für groß und klein verständlich, da es sich wie ein Quartett spielt und man weder lesen noch rechnen muss.
Die Illustrationen sind sehr liebevoll und detailreich und es macht immer wieder Spaß, den unterschiedlichen Familien andere Namen zu geben.
Absolute Kaufempfehlung!

Wundervoll gestaltetes und kurzweiliges Kartenspiel

Ich bin ein riesen Fan von diesem super schönen Kartenset. Die Illustrationen sind so liebevoll gestaltet und man kann sich gar nicht daran satt sehen. Als wir das Spiel mit meiner Nichte gespielt haben, wurden die Karten ausgiebig bestaunt und Fragen zu den abgebildeten Personen gestellt. So kommt man im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes spielerisch zu diversen Familien- und Persönlichkeitsbildern ins Gespräch. Gerne mehr davon!

Beautiful in and out!

We got the game for our daughter because she somtimes struggles with her "different" family setup. Seeing the own rainbow family stlye plus many many more in a deck of cards makes her feel represeted and reassures that she's not alone! also clara's drawings are just BEAUTIFUL! and the quality of the deck is very good :) 5/5*

How many cards?

35 cards: 7 families of 5 members

Celebrate diversity through play!

When Clara noticed that the families depicted in her son's games didn't look anything like their family, she decided to do something about it.

She illustrated Merry Families, a fun take on an old French classic, showing kids some of the many constellations of rainbow families: queer, multicultural, single-parent, families without kids, and family members of every ability. Some families have cats and dogs too!

This representation helps children of queer parents see other families just like theirs. And all children can develop empathy and understanding of other identities that have been largely underrepresented in games. Let's play!

About the Artist

A French illustrator based in Berlin, Clara Gilod works mostly on children books and editorial illustrations.

She finds inspiration in nature and the streets and people of Berlin. Her work is feminist, queer and aims to capture various points of view from her surrounding world.

In her illustrations, Clara depicts a diverse and non-conformist society, one that is too often forgotten in children's books and games.
