Have you ever been stuck at a restaurant, waiting for your food, with a restless little one in tow? This pocket-sized rainbow colored die will turn that antsy wait into a happier delay, while creating a wonderful learning opportunity. All you have to do: Grab it and Roll. Try to find something around you the same color as what this rainbow colored block reveals. Take turns rolling. See who can find the matching item the fastest. This unstructured toy lends itself to an endless array of gaming possibilities. Let your little one’s imagination lead the way to learning and play!
Turn any of our colorful play sets into a game with the Rainbow Roller! (Play Sets listed under the "Toys" heading in the shop.)
This listing is for ONE 1.5" cube. Each of the six sides has been hand stamped and hand painted with a nontoxic, soy based pigment. The cube is then lightly sealed in an organic beeswax and jojoba oil.
All of my creations were made with your little one in mind. Each piece was designed to nurture child development through open-ended play. These pieces can be used to broaden your little one's understanding and knowledge of our world and were created as early educational toys. I am inspired by the teachings of Montessori; the natural beauty of Waldorf; and incorporate a myriad of other learning-through-play philosophies when I design. It makes me smile to see my made-with-love pieces being toted for use as preschool toys and in natural play settings. Thank you for helping me support little minds, bodies, and imaginations through engaging, hands-on play and discovery.
Sensory Based Learning
Mama May i believes little ones make sense of their world through sensing our world. That's why you will find all of our designs offer a variety of tactile learning-through-play opportunities. We use a myriad of different textures and surfaces intertwined to make the most of every little play-and-learn time you share.
Kid Tested, Mama Approved
My own little ones have the wonderfully engaging job of "product testers". They are my inspiration for new products as well as my initial testing market. I don't add things to the product line that aren't played with and loved first at home.
Making Mama Earth Smile
Mama May i strives to reduce the impact of our products on the environment and your little one. We avoid the use of harsh chemicals and varnishes and instead, use plant based pigments, and organic beeswax to finish our wooden playthings. We use mostly untreated Poplar, Maple, and Oak that is locally sourced. We know how important your little one's safety is and we won't sell anything we wouldn't let our own little ones enjoy.
