If A Tree Falls In the Forest...
By Mama May i
Stack them up. Build them up. Topple them over. Nest them in. Create beautiful tree-scapes with these colorful, open-ended stacking pots. Create a world of whimsy and Seussical delight while playing and mastering a myriad of learning techniques. Help your little naturalist practice sorting skills by categorizing by color or size. Practice differentiation by lining them up from smallest to largest or from largest to smallest. Practice color recognition by grouping the colors of the rainbow. Practice fine motor skills by stacking the pieces up, up, up, and away. See how tall you can build before the trees come toppling to the forest floor. Play with physics and gravity. If a Tree Falls in the Forest…is a magical, open-ended building, nesting, and sorting toy that is sure to have your little explorer playing, pretending, and learning with nature. Use these pieces with building set or with little people to add a natural, colorful, and whimsical layer to pretend play.
If a Tree Falls in the Forest…will it make a sound? With this play set you are bound to hear the sound of little hands busy at play and little mind’s hard at work…
If a Tree Falls in the Forest…simply pick up the pieces and start building again.
Each set comes with 24 wooden cups in all. The set contains 4 different sizes cups in each of 6 different colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple), all wrapped up in a drawstring pouch for easy clean-up, organization, and portability.
Each pot has been painted using a nontoxic watercolor wash and lightly sealed with an organic beeswax and jojoba oil blend. None of the toys in the Rainbow Series are intended for children who still mouth things. As with all toys, children should be supervised while at play. Happy Exploring!
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.
