Let these open-ended wooden pieces delight and inspire your little one to play and dream with a Fairy Friend. This whimsical set includes just enough wood, fabric, and fiber to enchant the imagination and tickle your little fairy's outdoor senses. This set was created with my own, real-life, fairy-loving friend. She doodles and journals and creates and fiddles with these little pieces inside on shivery days...and we bring them with us outside on sunny ones. Find a hollow, a tree trunk, a sitting stump, a mossy green bank, leafy field, or pasture of posies to let these newfound friends dance in the light of creative thinking. Reminiscent of cloud-watching days, let your little one get entwined in the beautiful simplicity and dream-coaxing play of this lovingly packaged Fairy Friend. Each home includes enough pieces to set the stage for a daytime, playtime, mealtime, or nighttime adventure -- whatever your little one and Fairy Friend can dream of together.
Each Fairy Friend includes one of each item in a coordinating color scheme:
- A Fairy House made of felt, cotton fabric, and ribbon measuring approximately 7.5" tall and 5.5" wide.... with enough ribbon to hang from the wrist on walks through the forest or playtimes in the park.
- One Fairy Friend - each measuring approximately 2" tall painted in nontoxic, soy based paint.
- One crinkly leaf in coordinating cotton fabric, felt, and ribbon
- One felt pillow
- 10 pieces painted in the same color as your Fairy Friend and house
- 5 unpainted pieces
Let your little one delight in a dream walk; an investigation of imagination and pretend play; and a get-to-know-you with a new-found friend. You will be amazed and inspired by the conversations you will overhear and the imaginative ways your little one and Fairy Friend play and learn together.
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.
