These little cuties are sure to inspire your little one to play, match, size, sort, and invent games to learn by. Having three different sized apples lends itself to a myriad of learning opportunities built-in to play. My little ones invented a game using the Buckets and Rainbow Roller (both add-ons). They take turns rolling to see which color to collect from the bucket. They get so excited when they are able to “block” one another from collecting ALL of something (small, medium, large, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). Then my older one counts them to determine whose pile is greater than, less than or equal to — she categorizes and reevaluates her calculations based on different characteristics. She even went so far as to graph their game on occasion! She takes gaming very seriously 🙂

Each Sort Apples comes with 18 apples; 3 of each color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple; one of each size per color: small, medium, large. The smallest apple is definitely miniature at 1/2″ diameter and 1/2″ tall diameter. The medium apple is approximately 3/4″ diameter and 7/8″ tall. The biggest apple is approximately 1 and 3/8″ diameter and 1and 1/4″ tall. Each apple has been painted using a soy based wash and coated in beeswax and jojoba oil to seal the color and protect the wood.

Due to the size of these apples they are recommended for children 3+ as they could pose a choking hazard, especially for mouthy-explorers.

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.
