The Wanderly Why
A fantastic element of childhood is the sense of wonder that all children possess. At Wanderly we want to use this sense of wonder to:
- Enhance learning through interactive experiences.
- Increase mobility through lessons that require activity.
- Get us outside!
Often thanks to technology it is hard to get children outside. We at Wanderly want technology to be the reason we get out, become active and add a sense of wonder to our wanders! .
Lena Ni Mhurchu Angland
The idea of Wanderly came from Angland family ‘Adventures’. When out for walks, Ellie, Tim and Conor are enthusiastic fairy trail roamers or pirate hunters. Meeting the fairies behind the doors, finding pirates or discovering hidden wildlife in the woods are frequent chats and imaginings whilst adventuring.
‘Imagine if you could help them meet some of these characters’ was a thought that kicked off the Wanderly idea. The hope was to bring more wonder to family wanders by adding a little magic to the walk while also learning on the way.
“It is Fabulous for their imaginations. You really cant beat the magic of the woods. All my girls kept asking was ‘When is the next one coming?!’”
