Queens of Heart
Siblings Zach and Zeb Wahls were inspired to start illustrating card decks when they heard the phrase, "playing the woman card." This fun, educational set actually features 52 "woman cards," and the ladies included all made history before adulthood. For example, each ace depicts activist Malala Yousafzai, while Mary Shelley, the first lady of science fiction, occupies the queen cards. The deck even includes two jokers, young actresses Quvenzhané Wallis and Shirley Temple.
Give them to a kiddo as a playful learning tool—they can visit the link on the website included on the instructions card to learn more about each featured female—or pair with the brother-sister duo's original Woman Cards for a double dose of empowerment. Drawn in Iowa. Manufactured in Texas.
