my son was a baby and he was playing and I was doing some work on this side. I was just, you know, like he's over in this area and I'm doing my thing and I looked over and he had a pile of orange toys and I was like, what you're doing? Um Because they're so weird, what are you doing it? And I thought to myself, wait a second. He's, he's not even a year old and he's able to sort things by color. That is interesting. And I was like a lot of science in the beginning is pretty categorical. Is this, is this an atom, where is this a molecule? Is this a pure substance? Or is this a mixture? And you go um and it's like, mm I wonder how many of these things are like that. So I started to like just map it out in a power point slide, oddly enough, because I didn't have the pictures and I had yet. I just had the idea. So I mapped these out and I thought which of these is not like the other is a fun game the kids play and why not use science in those and we could use their real toys. And so I did market research of looking at every book that's out there in the, in the field. And I felt like it was pretty, it was it was a niche market where it was like for nerds babies, it was, if you're a scientist or a doctor, these books are for your kids. And I remember thinking, well I want this to be for everybody. So let's game and said.
