* 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.
*Note: This toy is not intended for children who still mouth things. The balls measure ¾ inch in diameter. I use this as a “monitored” or “guided” toy with my little one. As with any toy, children should be supervised while at play. *
*Note: Color Varies from batch to batch depending on the watercolor wash and how the wood accepts it. *

Let these open-ended wooden pieces delight and inspire your little one to play and dream with a Fairy Friend. This whimsical set includes just enough wood, fabric, and fiber to enchant the imagination and tickle your little fairy's outdoor senses.

She doodles and journals and creates and fiddles with these little pieces inside on shivery days...and we bring them with us outside on sunny ones. Find a hollow, a tree trunk, a sitting stump, a mossy green bank, leafy field, or pasture of posies to let these newfound friends dance in the light of creative thinking. Reminiscent of cloud-watching days, let your little one get entwined in the beautiful simplicity and dream-coaxing play of this lovingly packaged Fairy Friend. Each home includes enough pieces to set the stage for a daytime, playtime, mealtime, or nighttime adventure -- whatever your little one and Fairy Friend can dream of together.
Each Fairy Friend includes one of each item in a coordinating color scheme:
- A Fairy House made of felt, cotton fabric, and ribbon measuring approximately 7.5" tall and 5.5" wide.... with enough ribbon to hang from the wrist on walks through the forest or playtimes in the park.
- One Fairy Friend - each measuring approximately 2" tall painted in nontoxic, soy based paint.
- One crinkly leaf in coordinating cotton fabric, felt, and ribbon
- One felt pillow
- 10 pieces painted in the same color as your Fairy Friend and house

Play a Giggle Game…So important is one-on-one interaction with your baby. With the Tiny Tickler you can play a simple giggle game with even the youngest of explorers. The Tiny Tickler will help your little one begin to understand where her body begins and ends through sensory stimulation and interaction with her favorite person: You! A great way to introduce parts-of-the-body vocabulary and directions like top, bottom, left, and right all while building a healthy sense of ego and engaging her desire to play.
The wooden ring is softly coated in organic, all-natural beeswax and jojoba oil for durability. Gently knotted to the ring are whimsically soft, colorful strands of 100% , bias cut, Habotai silk. Each strand has been hand-dyed.
*Though this is not meant as a teething ring, it provides a great changing table, after bath time or, on-the-go parent-child game partnership that will tickle your little one’s senses time and time again.
Because the silk is hand-dyed, colors may vary from the picture. Each Tiny Tickler, however, will have 6 different colors - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. Thank you!

Our Maker's Description:
Introducing the Explore With Me Sensory Box tool kit – an invaluable addition to hands-on learning. Oh how I love the open-endedness of a sensory bin. I love how many different skills can be practiced with a little bit of imagination and a box of "stuff". I always enjoy creating these seasonal boxes, it's a lot of fun for me to make - and how I love watching my little one’s excitement when she sits down to play – it’s like opening a present. It’s therapeutic and just plain fun.
My little explorer really enjoys playing with different nick-knacks in a tub filled with something tactile - I mean, who wouldn't? It's a great way to add texture to play while exploring a subject through excavation and discovery. Sometimes she mulls through the bin on her own and sometimes we work on it together, incorporating more conversation as she explores. Either way she is learning some very important lessons: physics, gravity, volume, shape, size, sound, how things fit together, similar and different, size relation...the list goes on.
There are so many ways to use, play, and explore with the contents in this kit. A wooden box is the window to sensorial play and imaginative excavation. Let your little one’s creativity go wild with the pouring, scooping, pinching, placing, picking, poking, and playing opportunities this learning box inspires. Add a smidgen of playful thought and create a unique and magical Explore With Me experience at each and every sit-down. This kit contains the basics and can be used over and over again – just change the ingredients and you can create a whole new learning adventure.
Some ideas for something tactile:
What’s You Get:
- 1 wooden box measuring ( 8.5" x 8" x almost 2" deep ) to hold all your tools & can be used as the actual “Sensory Bin”
- 2 different wooden bowls
- 2 different wooden scoops
