Mama Made Them is an Etsy Shop owned by Cheryl Bier. She creates handmade wooden toys and games to be enjoyed for years to come. The pieces are made of high quality wood and crafted by hand. Cheryl sent me the Wooden Sword and The Mini for my children to test out and me to review. Both pieces are solid wood and of sturdy design that show how well made they are, right out of the package! The items are made from wood, sanded down so that they are smooth to the touch and finished with beeswax. The driver of the MIni is finished with watercolor paint, so it isn’t for a child who would chew on it, but Cheryl has been kind enough to honor orders that request that the paint be left off.
I had told Liam that a sword was coming and the moment he saw the package in our mail carrier’s hand he leapt at it. As luck would have it, we were just starting a pirate movie and Liam hasn’t set it down but for meals since. After all, I must insist on “no weapons at the table”. Both kids are so excited to be playing pirates that I frequently hear, “Yar Mates” and and one child or the other standing, sword brandished preparing to defend our home.
The Mini is a sweet little car complete with driver. It is the perfect size to race along our window sills and fits the toddler/preschooler hand comfortably. My children are very attached to vehicles of all shapes and sizes, but I will say that finding the Mini and it’s driver in Sylvi’s purse among all her bracelets and doll supplies was the most amusing thing to date!
These items are remarkably well made and created so that the greatest amount of imagination and creativity can be used. A sword can be used by a knight or a king or a pirate or fairy. A car can drive to the store or the beach or the grocery or the library. And since these items have arrived in our home, I’ve seen these scenarios and many more acted out. So much so, that I’m thinking that my own fairy will need a sword for her birthday this Spring!
You can purchase your own Wooden Sword and Mini at Mama Made Them for $15 and $5, respectively. There are a variety of other vehicles and the neatest wooden dinosaurs in the shop as well! Cheryl has poured her heart into the creativity of her shop, and you’ll see love in each item she offers.
