Just like pictures, typography can evoke certain feelings or call to mind images. Narrow condensed fonts for instance, can remind you of serious notes. Meanwhile, chubby, irregular characters can convey playfulness, warmth, or the essence of childhood. It all depends on how the designer or artist combines the rest of the elements.

If you’re working on children’s books or kiddie projects, then these playful fonts will fit those concepts beautifully.
