Being a teacher, I'm a huge fan of toys that engage children to use their imaginations. Today, there are so many interactive, technology based toys and tablets that it's hard to find good "old-fashioned" toys. That being said, I am so happy that I was able to collaborate with Melody from MASProductionArts. Have you checked out her shop?! So many great toys to encourage low tech play and learning for toddlers and young children. Everything from fill and spill sets and sensory boxes to matching games and lacing beads, there's something for every one and they're all crafted by hand!
This color sorting mat includes fun items to sort out on a colorful mat that can be rolled up - again, perfect to throw in the diaper bag! The assortment of items is so fun and included a pom pom, various wooden shapes, a bean bag, and clear stone. I love to play this with her because I'll put a yellow star on the pink square and she'll say "no, Mommy!" and move it. She's one smart cookie ;) She loves to play with this in the mornings while I'm making her breakfast and loves to sort the beads on there too. It really encourages her to learn colors and is also great for concentration.
These little peg people are the cutest! She got the purple set and they're so simple, yet there are endless possibilities to play with them. From a princess one day to a baby the next, they're a fun way for her to use her imagination. These also come in a small pouch so you can bring them anywhere, too.
I am so thrilled with the quality of these toys. From the colors to delicate details, I'm seriously impressed and love that Olivia can have so much fun with them. Be sure to check out MASProductionArts on Instagram: @masproductionarts and Etsy shop for your little one! A huge thank you to Melody for these wonderful, fun toys! Enjoy your day & make some time to play!
