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.

I really like making things for children. Not only do the colors, patterns, and textures inspire my own imagination, but they also seem to create a unique end product that takes on a character all its own (a character quite like its owner). Just as your little one is full of spunk and spirit, so are these little handmade pieces. And an added bonus, you will never find a more grateful recipient! – Children love, cuddle, bite, drag, chew, hold, and hug these little loveys over and over again.

Great for holiday gifts, baby showers, or “just because” these handmade pieces are Looped With Love. The ones I have given away as gifts have been tugged and toted everywhere!

Even if the same fabrics are used, each creation is a little bit different. Everything I make is hand-sewn. Please expect slight variations and imperfections, they add character and spirit. I promise your little one won’t mind!

I have lots of fabric just waiting to become that special gift for someone you love– so if you have a certain theme or color scheme in mind feel free to make a special request. Many of my best ideas come from collaborating on a project.

If you have any questions please let me know, I will be more than happy to answer them.
