Got kids? Are they ready to to learn the English alphabet? Do you have this irresistible urge to shape your kids’ preferences by making sure they know all about what’s cool today? (Even though what we consider cool will probably be totally square by the time your kids grow up.)
Whether you consider yourself a hipster or not, if you want flashcards that give you more than “A is for Apple”1, then we have the perfect set for you.
Emma Cook of Cape Town, South Africa came up with a “silly little side project” which may very well be what some parents have been looking for: hipster flashcards.
Each letter stands for something that belongs to this point in time. A still stands for Apple, but as you can expect, there’s a very stylish looking thing displayed in lieu of a red, shiny fruit that is supposed to keep the doctor away if consumed every day.
Now, I don’t know how you will explain the Bézier Curve to your two-year-old (or whatever age children learn the alphabet these days), but I’m sure you’ll figure out a way.
What’s your verdict on the hipster flashcards?
If these hipster flashcards are not your style, here are some more interesting alternatives:
- The Alphabet in LEGO
- Star Wars Alphabet
- A is for Arial, B is for Baskerville
- A is for Ackbar
- The Alphabet in Retro Video Games
Share and Enjoy
- The fruit, not the brand. [↩]
