Description

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 Apples 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.

*Note: Though these pieces are intended for toddler use, if used incorrectly they could pose a choking hazard. They ARE NOT intended for children who still Mouth things. As with ALL toys, children should ALWAYS be supervised while at play.

*Note: Color May Vary from Batch To Batch Depending on the Water Color Wash and How the Wood Accepts the Color. Thank you! *

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.

Founder and principle designer, Jessica Perkins, has been creating for as long as she can remember, originally helping her mama with her handmade toy store over 20 years ago. With the birth of her children, and all the new little people in her life, Jessica found herself searching for toys that met her educational and design standards.

Inspired by these little explorers, and her understanding of Montessori and Waldorf methodologies, Jessica Perkins began making all of her creations with the belief that children make sense of their world through sensing their world. After years of making, creating, and gifting her creations to friends and family, Jessica decided to start selling her goodies. Since the launch of Mama May i in 2009, Jessica’s passion for artistic expression through toys has blossomed into a business supported by mama’s and papa’s all over the world.

With this learning through play philosophy in mind, Mama May i encourages kids, both big and small, to dive in, make a splash, a scribble, or an inquisitive fiddle on the memories we share together.
