Silkies - Small
By Mama May i
Tents, hats, dresses, wands, capes, veils, picnic blankets, canopies, fairy wings, peek-a-boo playtime…the open-ended possibilities of Play Silks are endless. Inspire your little one’s imagination with these brightly colored scarves. Create, Play, Dance, and Enjoy this soft and whimsical set playtime after playtime.
Each set includes 6 play Silkies – in a scrumptious rainbow of hand-dyed color. Each scarf in this set is about 22” square – perfect for little hands to move, swirl, and peek-a-boo!
These silks are 100% habotai silk (8mm) with hand-rolled hems, dyed with non-toxic dye. They have been hand-dyed so colors may vary from the picture, and within the scarf itself – this is completely normal and adds to its unique character.
No need for wrapping, each set comes in this beautiful clear pail making a playful and stunning present for any special occasion or play date!
Hand-wash and air-dry or put them in the dryer WITHOUT heat to soften them up a bit. Because minor bleeding on the first few washes may occur it is best to wash each color by itself.
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.
