Hey there, and welcome to Prismland! Since you made it here, you must be wondering a little about Prismland and how it came to be.
It all began when local Toronto artist Jess Chen was completing her graduate program at Parsons School of Design in The Big Apple. She was challenged to experiment with sewing and fabric design and, after thoughtfully developing the trademark Prismland sprinkle pattern, Cubert the Cube was born.
But she didn’t stop there. Why not make a pyramid or a sphere? A rhomboid or a hexagon? What if these adorable characters could be used to teach children (and adults) about geometry?! Jess realized that by spending time with these innovative toys, children would naturally develop an interest in shapes and solids. Thus, the PrismPals were born!
After enlisting her long-time friend Matt Mayers, a mechanical engineering graduate, the two developed the brand and wrote quirky booklets to accompany each character and teach bite-sized lessons. They successfully crowdfunded production of the educational toy line on Kickstarter (thank you backers!) and launched the Prismland online store in February of 2016. Since then, kids and adults alike all over the world have begun to embrace geometry with the PrismPals. Now, we invite you to do the same.
