Play That is More Than a Game

The English language is considered a complex language to read, pronounce, and write. It is crucial that children have a strong foundation in phonemic awareness, segmenting, and decoding for reading success. If not, parents may encounter their children memorizing words while reading, eventually discovering that they are ineffectual readers as early as second grade.

Children know when their reading ability does not advance and they quickly lose confidence. Carrie Chapie, Owner of Darling LLC and Creator of WORD WITT, found that this situation was not uncommon. This motivated her to research the science and mechanics behind reading. Children need fun ways to elevate their confidence and foundational reading skills. EVERYONE Learns when they are having fun.

WORD WITT is not Boggle, and it’s not Scrabble… it is it’s own fresh new format. A fast, FUN, and competitive game for building foundational reading skills in school age children all while keeping word-loving children and adults engaged and thinking.

Roll the dice. Flip a card, Race to create the most words in a minute. A wonderful way to ignite laughter, connection, and the urge to play over and over again to beat your score and theirs!

Created by a parent and supported by educators. WORD WITT has won the Oppenheim Gold Seal Award, PALS Top 10 Award, PALS Award, Creative Child 2021 Game of the Year Award, and endorsed by University of Michigan’s Dyslexia Help.

Darling LLC is proud to announce they have been able to shift 90% of their next round of manufacturing of WORD WITT to Michigan/USA. Although Covid had made connecting with retailers challenging, Darling LLC is looking forward to continuing to partner with community, and educationally engaged toy and speciality stores.
