Fidget - What a Hoot
By Mama May i
This mini 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.
In between the two coordinating cotton fabrics is crinkle paper that creates a fun crunching sound when squeezed, twisted, squished, or patted. This little fiddle toy will inspire your little musician to explore movement and music through cause and effect.
This little Fidget is a great distraction and play toy for your little one. They are very portable – fit easily in a diaper bag, stroller, car seat, crib, purse, or pocket! This lovey measures approximately 5" x 5", not including ribbons, and is the perfect size for little hands to manipulate, crinkle, crunch, and hold.
Because they are handmade, the ribbons may vary.
Surface wash and hang to dry
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.
