A whole little world inside a box*…like your little one’s imagination, you will find a world of play, a world of fun, a world of learning. The Family Box will inspire creative play and enchant young story-makers. Each family has six members (one for all the colors of the rainbow) and six coordinated sleep sacks. Entice imaginative thinking while reinforcing beginner color concepts, size relations, fine motor skills, and open-ended play.
Each family member is made of natural wood and has one of six colors marked on their bottoms. There are six coordinating sleep sacks made of comfy, cotton fabric. Encourage cognitive problem solving while your little one practices matching sizes or colors and enhances fine motor skills.
With a dash of imagination, the play and learning possibilities are endless….
Stand the little people Shortest to Tallest or Smallest to Biggest.
Match the colored bottoms to their sleep sacks.
Tuck the little people into a sleep sack they fit into.
Count the people in the family.
Group the "kids" and "grown-ups" or "boys" and "girls"
*NOTE : The box you receive may vary in shape from the one pictured.
- The Family Box contains small parts and is not suitable for children under 3.
As with all toys, little ones should be supervised while at play. -
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.
