Fiddle Fab - Night Zoo
By Mama May i
With so many colors and textures, this blanket is sure to catch your little one’s attention. The front side is designer, 100% cotton, fabric. The back is made of soft, squishy, luxurious, minky. Great for comforting and touching any baby will love snuggling with it.
Each corner has a different set of ribbons gathered together, producing yet another tactile experience for your little one.
-One corner has a ribbon firework to help your little explorer sense groupings, feel quantities in bulk, and feel the sensation of many ribbons gathered together.
-One corner has ribbons in varying widths and heights stacked as a beginning concept to size and shape relationships.
-One corner has 5 ribbons divided by knots – a subtle beginning to mathematics and numbers.
-One corner has a teething knot – another way little ones make sense of their world – through taste.
Each side has a different gathering of ribbons as well. But each side offers an array of different materials and textures to fiddle with. All of the ribbons are cut straight and sealed (no chemicals were used).
-One side has angled ribbons grouped together
-One side has ribbons in different widths and materials in a progression from shortest to longest and back down again
-One side has ribbons in the same height but with different textures and shapes
-One side simply has a plastic teething hoop for little ones to chomp on. This circle also serves as a carrying O and hanging device – the perfect spot to connect to a diaper bag, stroller, or car seat with a link.
This fiddle toy has many different coordinating ribbons in varying lengths, widths, materials, and textures forming a great sensory experience for your little love. Each ribbon is straight cut and sealed (without chemicals) to avoid fraying and has been triple stitched for extra security. The ribbons are made of satin, grosgrain, rikrak, and other trims – creating a unique textural adventure. Your little explorer will love feeling the different surfaces.
Fiddle Fabs are the perfect cognitive play and comfort companion for your little one. They are portable – fit easily in a diaper bag and fasten quickly to a stroller with a link. This lovey measures approximately 12" x 12", not including ribbons, and is the perfect size for little hands to manipulate, cuddle, hug, and hold.
Because they are handmade, the ribbons may vary.
Machine washable – warm/cold cycle, tumble-dry low, or hang
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.
