Welcome to Baro CREATIONS – home of the Piltkin™. Our goal is to develop innovative learning activities for students, friends and family.
Baro CREATIONS is the collaboration of Grandma Barbara (the Artist and Educator) and Grandpa Bob (the Engineer). We have three children and eight grandchildren. In our mid-fifties, we served as Peace Corp volunteers in the country of Armenia. Upon returning to the US, we began a three year job assignment in the Republic of Panama. Learning two new languages and alphabets helped us better understand the stages of language development. Barbara began working with foreign language speakers in a local ESL center and wanted to make learning English a fun activity. Thus the seed for Baro Creations was sown!
Our flagship product is a card game with letters, called Piltkin™ WORDS. This game focuses on the recognition and interplay of letters. It is designed for the beginning student of the alphabet to the accomplished speller. This product can be used in a wide range of fields including classroom teaching, ESL, reading, language development, speech, and/or rehabilitation. Jump to our PRODUCTS page to learn more…
Piltkin™ WORDS makes a great gift. It’s a unique tool to reinforce the alphabet and spelling. This new card game is homework friendly. It’s portable, AND it doesn’t require batteries!
You may wonder…what is a Piltkin™?
It is a friendly creature that sprouted from Grandma Barbara’s imagination. A Piltkin™ is a whimsical pursuer of letters, learning and language.
