The essence of me
Wrapped inside a fluffy tree
That’s where you will find me
My little pea!
Mother nature is an essential component of free play. Trees represent the importance of each season and what that season has to offer to the child.
It is no surprise that children understand and follow nature intuitively as it sets the rhythm and repetition in our lives. Children learn the importance of nature and make trees and other natural elements a part of their play.
Whether you choose natural or hand-painted, forest trees are simple with a minimal outline that helps the child connect with different colours and shades of green or with natural colours where the child can explore their imagination on colours the trees could have. Each tree is designed keeping in mind the different shapes, sizes and seasons that we witness around us at home and while traveling.
Deep forest trees allow a very young child to enjoy free play - where she can sense the texture, observe different shapes, listen to colours and shapes from her primary caregiver and growing to create her own narratives (speech and language ) as she plays.
Each tree is a single piece of wood that has been hand-made and hand-sanded by local artisans in Banaras and colored with child-friendly, non-toxic paint making them safe for little hands. The barks of trees have been kept natural for a sensorial exposure.
There are 14 trees in the set
Wood is mother earth’s gift and has unique markings. Variations in wood grain, colours, knots, textures or dye transfer are all natural occurrences in wooden toys. Grains and knots are a unique feature of wood and are made naturally over many years. Hand-painted toys vary from one set to the other, making each set unique and human made.
