Love from moms around the world 🌎

We love natural toys that promote mindfulness. My 7-year old loved it so much, he has been using it every single day!

We decided to take our silk and climbing triangle outside. Having the triangle with the space playsilk makes our little one really excited. He has so much fun climbing and
"jumping" into space!

I am obsessed with rainbows and wooden toys! Kids have been using the play silk for costume play, natural color sorting with leaves and flowers, and using it as a wrapping cloth for their dolls. It has been so much fun!

I am always looking for ways to provide open ended play for my daughter and enjoy watch her problem solve. We absolutely love the kit. It's ideal for building towers, stacking ups, and landscapes.
