There is something magical about rainbows. The way the colors collaborate with one another. The way the curves mingle. The way the arches circle ‘round in a hug. And there is something whimsical about the peculiarity of a crooked, wavy line –childlike. Not trying or pretending to be perfect. But beautiful just the same. There Once Was a Crooked Rainbow that wanted to come play…
And inspire with its colors. Even if it were left to be on a shelf.
But allowed to come play? Oh, allowed to come play, and magic it will make. Creating arches and caves; boundaries and spindles; walkways, architecture, and art. Allowed to play, and it will intrigue and inspire. Help your little explorer create a magical story that begins: There Once Was a Crooked Rainbow…
And prepare to be awed by imagination.
There Once Was a Crooked Rainbow has been: hand cut from birch, sanded silky smooth, coated with a nontoxic watercolor wash, and finished with a light, organic beeswax and jojoba oil to help maintain its vibrant color.
This Rainbow stacker measures approximately 10" tall and 10" wide.
Kindly Allow 2-3 Weeks for this hand cut set to be sent. Thank you!
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.
