Product Description

Sharpen mental acuity while improving memory, inspiring story-telling, and open-ended play with the Little Details Play Set. This portable game can be used and played with in so many different ways… -Match the 20 wooden trinkets to their appropriate picture & word card– or have them matched to shadow contours. -Put all the trinkets in the bag and choose a card – see if you can find the right item without peeking inside the bag. Feel around, investigating the contours of each piece to find the proper shape and size. -Lay the pieces out on the felt play mat. Have your little investigator take a mental picture of them. Cover them up and quietly take one piece away, see if she can discover which piece is missing. For younger problem-solvers start with a couple objects. You can make the game more difficult by adding pieces. -Set up miniature “still life” scenes with the wooden pieces. Have your little artist follow the curves of the pieces with his eyes and draw his findings in the pocket-sized Moleskine book. Create “Contour” and “Blind Contour” drawings using these whimsical wooden pieces as subject matter. -Hide the objects around the room and see if your little one can find all 20. -Take the objects out of the bag, one at a time, and tell a story incorporating your hidden treasures into the story line. Be sure to take notes so you can look back on the plot later. This set provides a myriad of teaching possibilities. Discuss new vocabulary like shape, form, and line types. Incorporate drawing styles like Contour Line Drawings, and Blind Contour drawings. Open your mind to seeing things in a new way – a “thimble” could be a hat…or a pot…or a cup…or a rowboat for a ladybug. Let your little one’s imagination be the guide to exploring life’s Little Details in this magical, open-ended play set.

About the Seller

Mama May I
(7 Reviews)

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.
