About

A tradition of learning through play with educational toys

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.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mama May i was built on the philosophy that children learn best through play experiences, and I wanted my children to have simple educational toys that were built with natural products and made by hand with love.

Our products are handmade, sustainable, and built leveraging Montessori/Waldorf methodologies, and my degrees in Psychology and Media Arts & Design.

I hope you make many wonderful memories with your little ones, and that they enjoy the care and thought that went into making their playthings just for them.

All of my items are created and built by me. I have lots of fabric and raw wood 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.

Mama May i, LLC handles all packages we ship with the utmost care, and see to it that packages make it to the United States Postal Service office with the proper shipping information. Mama May i, LLC is not accountable for delays, errors, or failures in delivery once the shipment/package is in transit. Unfortunately, packages do sometimes get lost in transit, and we will do our best to assist you in resolving the matter. We always purchase delivery confirmation, and insurance is available for an additional charge. If you would like to add insurance coverage to your shipment, please let me know before you process your order, and I can send you an invoice


Please note: The cost of shipping for your order includes other variable costs in addition to postage fees and services. These variable costs include the fees charged by Etsy and Paypal for order processing, and appropriate packaging materials. The size, weight, and cost of sale are the primary factors used in determining the cost of shipping.

International Shipping: International shipping can be costly depending on the destination country, and there are occasionally additional shipping charges applied by local customs or shipping entities. Mama May i does not track nor have awareness of all local shipping entities worldwide, and our shipping rates are based on the cost to send the package to the destination as charged by the USPS. In order to provide reasonable shipping rates, International Orders are sent out Regular Parcel Post and usually take about 4 weeks to arrive (and can be longer if held up at Customs.) Shipping prices are calculated based on weight. If you would like to upgrade to Priority Mail, I would be happy to work with you and squeeze as much as I can into a Flat Rate Envelope. Priority Mail International usually takes 14-21 business days to reach its destination. Insurance is always optional but Post Office only allows it to be purchased with Priority Shipments - if you would like insurance added please let me know.

I take great care in the construction of my products. As with any toy be sure never to leave your child unsupervised. Be sure to check all seams and ribbons on your tag blankets for normal wear and tear to make sure they are still safe and secure. Purchaser assumes all liability.
