Parents Are Human: A Bilingual Game to Deepen Family Bonds is Now Live on Kickstarter

Joseph Lam is on a mission to help people connect deeply with their parents.
He co-founded Parents Are Human, a bilingual connection card game designed to help immigrant families have deeper conversations and forge stronger ties. The campaign is now live on Kickstarter, where Toy Wizards readers can learn all about the different tiers and rewards involved.

Each deck contains 70 prompts with two levels of difficulty to inspire connection, compassion, and vulnerability.
Each card includes a question or action in English on one side and a translated language on the other to help bridge language, culture, and generational gaps.
For the last few years, the most important priority in Joseph’s life has been healing the broken relationship he states he had with his immigrant parents for more than a decade. Thus, he co-created Parents Are Human to get to know his mom and dad before it was too late.
Their English + Chinese language editions have helped thousands of families worldwide, and the company has received over 900 language requests in just two years.

The company just launched preorders for our Vietnamese, Spanish, Korean, Tagalog, and English language editions of Parents Are Human on Kickstarter (shipping in November in time for the holidays).
