This adorable, natural wood, nesting set is sure to tickle your little one’s sense of discovery. There is something magical about opening one of these canisters – much like a present – you don’t know what you will find inside. Delight your little explorer’s curiosity and understanding of size relationships with this simple and timeless put-together puzzle.
Each set comes with three wooden lidded-jars that fit inside one another. Use them as stacking “blocks” to better understand physics and gravity. Use them in a play kitchen to fill up with ingredients for a masterful imagination chef. Use them as simple puzzles to better understand size relations and how things go together.
The largest canister measures a little more than 2.5 inches tall. The smallest canister measures 1 inch tall.
Each canister has been lightly coated in a combination of beeswax and jojaba oil for durability.
Due to the size of the smallest jar, this set is not recommended for children who still put things in their mouths as the pieces could pose a choking hazard. As with ALL toys, 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.
