There is nothing like simple blocks to spark the imagination. You can create, dawdle, build, roll, and explore endlessly with this starter set of 1” blocks. A dozen (12) blocks in all – two of each color - are enough to build a rainbow. Allow your little engineer to explore physics, gravity, balance, and structure. Help build fine motor skills while practicing the simple, yet challenging, act of stacking the blocks on top of one another. How high you can build your skyscraper tower before the blocks come tumbling down? Match the colored block pairs together to practice beginner color recognition.
Bundled together in a drawstrings pouch, for easy clean-up and storage, this set is the perfect size to keep around the house or bring with you on trips to restaurants, the doctor’s office, or grandma’s house. Your little one will enjoy this classic toy time and time again.
Each block measures 1” and has been painted with non-toxic soy based paint. They have been lightly sealed with a mixture of all-natural beeswax and jojoba oil to enhance their color and durability.
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.
