The New Educational Puzzles Loved By Kelly Rowland

Little Omo is the UK’s first inclusive brand with a passion for representing children of colour through educational products

Ex-Destiny Child star Kelly Rowland shared some puzzles with her followers on Instagram. She claimed they ‘made her happy’ and ‘she wished she had something like this when she was younger’ the puzzles from Little Omo represent little kids from diverse backgrounds and in different complexions to represent what is reflected in society today.

The brand was founded in 2020 by Desriee Asomuyide, who discovered that the UK market for educational flashcards representing children of colour was non-existent. It was important that her one-year-old son Isaiah, and other children like him, see themselves represented through educational and developmental resources.

Face puzzles are great for your children to learn about features in a fun way. The puzzle helps with fine motor skills, colour complexion and is overall a fun activity for you and your children to do.

Desriee, a first-time mum and fashion stylist with a BA in Fashion Design, channeled her passion for drawing, creativity, sustainability and representation of people of colour, into curating the unique and playful educational brand that is Little Omo today.

The meaning behind the brand name is of great significance to Desriee, telling a story of her culture and Nigerian heritage. ‘Omo’ means ‘child’ in the Yoruba language spoken mainly in the south-west of Nigeria. Desriee is very passionate about the flashcards featuring a variety of skin complexions, facial features and hair textures representing people from different backgrounds and cultures.
