Let this little woodland friend inspire your explorer to lace and play while building important fine motor skills. A whimsical twist on a traditional lacing board, this adorable critter is sure to elicit some play-and-learn time with your little naturalist. Have your little one tell this new friend a story while working little muscles and threading the leather string through each hole. A great skill builder, and cognitive puzzle because whatever is done needs to be undone; posing somewhat of a challenge for beginners. This little hedgehog was hand cut and gently sanded. It was then hand painted with an eco-friendly, plant-based paint and lightly sealed with an all-natural beeswax finish. This little friend measures approximately 7.5” from nose to end and approximately 4.5” tall. The wood itself is about ¾” thick. Each Lacing Friend comes with a leather thread and muslin pouch for storage and toting. This toy and description are property of Mama May i. I work really hard to create new toys. Please don’t copy my ideas or words for monetary compensation. Copyright MamaMayi 2008 – present 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.

About the Seller

Mama May i's handmade learning toys blend the best of developmental psychology and design to offer a unique learning through play experience. 

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.
