More Rainbow Play - This time for toddlers! A great addition to the color series, this little rainbow set is sure to intrigue and delight your little explorer. Placing the eggs in the coordinating cup is not only a great fine-motor skill builder, it also sharpens color recognition, and fosters imaginative play. This colorful set comes in a drawstring pouch and is the perfect size for toting to the doctor’s office, a restaurant, or grandma’s house.
This Spring I was looking little put together for my walking, toddling, curious, almost-one-year old. She loved playing with the Bambino Bamboozles - collecting the pieces, rolling them around in her hands, trying to put them together....so I decided to expand this lesson further and create a color sorting game. Hence the Sorting Eggs were made. She collects, rolls, and cups the eggs while I point out different colors and we try to "match" them.
Each little egg measures about 2” tall.
Each little cup is a little more than 2” tall.
Each piece has been hand painted with a nontoxic, soy based paint. They have been lightly sealed with a combination of organic beeswax and jojoba oil to keep the colors vibrant and the pieces durable.
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.
