Adriatic Story – The Croatian Marine Life Memory Game for Kids

As Morski writes, two Croatian agronomists, Marina and Filip, are both self-proclaimed lovers of the sea and what lives within it. One year ago, they became parents and then they started thinking about how to educate their little girl, as well as all the other children about the most famous inhabitants of the Adriatic sea. They soon came up with an interesting idea – to open a craft that produces an educational Croatian memory game for kids – Adriatic Story.

”Marina learned through scientific-teaching work that Croats eat too little fish, and Filip is a man from the sea, who spent his whole life by the sea and with fish (he also lived part of his life in Norway, where he worked at the Institute for Marine Research). Three years ago we started a blog together with the aim of promoting fish consumption. We regularly prepared dishes from fish and from other sorts of seafood, we also educated our companions as to just why it’s very important to eat fish,” say the parents of little Nika, who they wanted to educate about the most famous inhabitants of the Adriatic sea.

This is how the idea for the Adriatic Story memory game was initially born. The game consists of 24 cards, ie 12 pairs containing inhabitants of the Adriatic sea. The illustrations for the Adriatic Story memory game were done by Croatian illustrators Tena Letica and Ivan Dilberovic. In order not to be just an ordinary memory game for kids, the box also contains a brochure with a description of each individual marine organism so that children can also learn interesting facts about each creature.

One special and highly personal addition to this Croatian game is a personalised card, on which the name of the child, the owner of the Adriatic Story memory game, can be written. The game is intended for children aged three and up, but is interesting and educational for both older children and even for adults.

As a child grows up, memory takes on a new dimension, and before the age of three it is mainly stimulated by pictorial memory, at the age of three, children mostly learn to connect in pairs, and later on they can learn many interesting things about organisms living in the Adriatic and connect them to seafood dishes consumed at home, at school or elsewhere.

Adriatic Story’s entire production cycle (from the production of the game’s illustrations, the preparation for printing, the printing and packaging) have all taken place right here at home in Croatia.
