Lil' Boo's Bakery in a Box
By Mama May i
Inspired by my own little one’s desire to set up shop...anywhere – as well as her love for a sweet treat, this little bakery-in-a-box is sure to delight your little entrepreneur. A great set for indulging in some good old-fashioned pretend play as well as expanding vocabulary and the exploring the basics of customer service. This box contains all the ingredients needed to take on the role of small business owner or cookie-lover.
After scooping the secret ingredients and mixing them all together, the lid of the box doubles as a cookie sheet to bake little cookie delights to perfection – don’t forget to handle with care (and the oven mitt) as not to burn wee fingers! When they are all done flip them over to find decorative pairs. Set up shop with a festive string of garland. Which flavor will you choose? Chocolate chip, Sprinkles, Icing-topped? There are six different kinds to choose from. If you can’t make up your mind, perhaps sample them all with a friend at the shop – with a cup of cold milk or hot tea. Or package some up to take home with you! This kit includes 4 cookies “sleeves” and 2 cookies “boxes” so that happy customers can go home with a parcel of yummy-goodness to gift and share. Lil Boo’s Bakery prides itself on satisfied customers – what a whimsical way to play in the kitchen this Holiday Season and the whole year through.
This set is bursting with pretend pieces and contains the following:
Tin Box to keep all the pieces contained (and to use as a cookie tray)
3 wooden canisters – small, medium, large (1.75” tall, 2.25” tall, and 2.75” tall)
1 wooden scoop
1 rolling pin
1 cotton oven mitt
1 wooden milk bottle
2 wooden cups
2 wooden plates
12 wooden cookies (2 of each kind) – you can use this as a memory/match game, too!
2 round cookie tins
4 branded cookie sleeves
2 branded cookie boxes
1 string of garland to set up shop anywhere!
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.
