*Note* The colors of this product have changed. The dye bath came out much darker this time around so the silk ribbons attached are more like the ones pictured in the other Tiny Tickler listing. Thank you for your understanding.*
Play a Giggle Game…So important is one-on-one interaction with your baby. With the Tiny Tickler you can play a simple giggle game with even the youngest of explorers. The Tiny Tickler will help your little one begin to understand where her body begins and ends through sensory stimulation and interaction with her favorite person: You! A great way to introduce parts-of-the-body vocabulary and directions like top, bottom, left, and right all while building a healthy sense of ego and engaging her desire to play.
The wooden ring is softly coated in organic, all-natural beeswax and jojoba oil for durability. Gently knotted to the ring are whimsically soft, colorful strands of 100% , bias cut, Habotai silk. Each strand has been hand-dyed.
*Though this is not meant as a teething ring, it provides a great changing table, after bath time or, on-the-go parent-child game partnership that will tickle your little one’s senses time and time again.
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.
