PRODUCT STORY
Jessica says: Where is Gnome Man’s Land? Where fantasy and whimsy collide. Peek inside this little wooden slider box and you will find all the tinkerings needed to create, play, and explore the corners of your little one's imagination. These simple wooden rainbow pieces are the cornerstones to inspired play and creative exploration in a land like no other. Construct a mushroom landscape, toppled trees, river stones, toadstools, whimsical hideaways, and more in this open-ended dreamland. With this 19-piece set you can help build fine motor skills and strengthen hand eye coordination while supporting cognitive development and nurturing story-telling skills. Let these little spirits entice and inspire your little dreamer to play, touch, and learn.

My daughter, Layla, helped create this Gnome Man's Land. She has always had a fondness for little knickknacks and treasures. One day she tried putting a "hat" on the little wooden peg person we were playing with. From there I created a game of color, a concept we had started working on at the time. She was enraptured with these little people and their little "home". She uses the box as an elevator, house, bed, hat store. Her imagination is inspiring.

Each piece has been hand painted with a nontoxic, water-based wash. They have been lightly sealed with a combination of organic beeswax and jojoba oil to keep the colors vibrant and the pieces durable.

I adore absolutely everything in Mama May I Shop, but this set in particular is amazing for open-ended, inspiring play. Each piece is thoughtfully made with love and care. These are the kinds of toys that feed a child's sense of wonder and imagination!

Although I am with Poketti and we are competing with each other, I have to say, these are really sweet. I love the simple design and the possibilities for play are endless. Congratulations to Jessica and Layla!
