Make a Match - Philadelphia
By Mama May i
Oh the sweet sounds, sights, and tastes of Philadelphia - the City of Brotherly Love. We recently participated in a Culture Share project with other families around the world; and, I had the pleasure of rediscovering the City of Brotherly Love with my little ones in tow while researching, drawing, and exploring our wonderfully cultural, diverse, and historical city. We created a little story about our journey through the city filled with fun native facts (and Wikipedia finds). This particular edition would make a unique way to study Philadelphia in a homeschool or for-the-fun-of-it setting!
This little Make a Match Memory Game is compact enough to fit into your purse, backpack, or even your pocket. The perfect play toy for picnics, play dates, or rainy days, this is a classic, multi-generational game that will be enjoyed time and time again. This particular Make a Match Edition is a JUMBO Collection..there are 50 wooden coins made from all natural wood and measure 1 and 1/2 inch in diameter. They are sanded to a smooth finish and are soft to the touch. Each set includes 25 pairs of original, whimsical, black ink drawings. Each image has been hand drawn adding to the character and charm of this City of Brotherly Love Play set. Adding a finishing touch is a drawstring pouch to collect and pocket the pieces when they are not in use. Each set makes a unique gift for both parents and children to enjoy together.
*NOTE* Due to the small size of the wooden coins, this game is not suitable for children under the age of 4. As always, children should be supervised while at play.

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.
