On A Roll
The sorting series has a new addition! Lincoln loves things that GO. And he also loves playing with his big sister’s learning materials. The Counting Series of manipulatives are just a bit too small for him (a mouth explorer!) So I decided it was time to add a Toddler-friendly set to be used on their own or with the Color Sorting Bowls (sold separately). This has already proven to inspire a treasure trove of new pretend-play ideas from my six year old who likes to put the cups in a muffin tin and use these colorful spheres as muffin tops. My three year old pretends they are scoops of ice cream. And when left to enjoy the rainbow of 6 by themselves, my little engineers constructed ramps out of paper and cardboard to roll, slide, and spill these colorful balls to the floor. They are sturdy enough for little hands to fiddle with and durable enough to go sliding and gliding across the floor.
Each ball measures 2” in diameter and is painted with a nontoxic, soy based, watercolor wash so you can still see the beautiful grain of the wood. Each set comes with 6 balls; one each of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and is lightly sealed with a combination of beeswax and jojoba oil. On a Roll is collected in a muslin pouch for easy storage and tote-ability.
