Our biological italian toys

When we decided to start this project we didn’t realized how big and difficult was going to be.
It has been really tough, especially because we didn’t want any compromise. We started talking with different expert (psychologist, psychomotrist, professional educators, etc) and mixed up all suggestions helped by a designer. Then we had to find the right materials: we were looking for materials 100% biologic certified , with specific properties. It turned harder to find a tailor able to stitch those different materials together: we had to go to a very small village in south Italy where some craft jobs are still alive. At the end we had to find a laboratory to test our toys to have a CE certification.
And finally here we are, our first toys are in our nurseries with our babies who love them, and for us this is the most important thing.
All our toys have hears, because our philosophy is to hear to the needs of babies.
We divided all toys in 3 different categories: “Cuddles”, “first experiences” and “stories to invent and to tell”.
For every toy you will find what the expert says about it, what biologic materials is made and what is thought and some pictures of details.
Please remember that every toy is hand made and all materials used are 100% biological certified thus totally anallergic.

FIRST EXPERIENCE
To taste, to hear, to touch, to see, to crawl, receiving a caress… all these things are learning model based upon experience no matter if it’s cognitive emotional or sensory.
the experiential learning gives to the baby the ability to face uncertainty developing adaptive behaviors and in the meantime to grow the ability to manage his emotionality
these toys help babies to develop couriosity, the discovery, experimentation, coordination oculus/manual, taking, grabbing, opening, closing.

STORIES TO INVENT AND TO TELL
Storytelling is the oldest game in the world and fairytales are for each child wings to fly between worlds and fantastic characters.
The tales give the opportunity to children to come to the discovery of the emotional world. When a child recognize and identify himself into the protagonists it’s a way to get in touch with those emotions, learn to recognize them, to give it a name and then express them.
when stories were told and heard by the mother and father, maybe nestled in their arms, it takes a much greater emotional significance of the gesture itself.
These toys help babies to develop il racconto, la condivisione di momenti quotidiani, implementare il linguaggio, la conoscenza, la creatività.

GROW PLAYING

Different age, different way of playing, that’s why it’s important not to force the natural habits of babies.
From birth to 24 months babies experience the senses using touch, sight, hearing and taste; they start to interact with objects and enjoy playing.
From 2 to 6 years old babies start symbolic games where they develop immagination and create situation of real life or invented. As an actor, the baby plays a role: the parent, a baby of the opposite sex, an animal; in this way babies show us how they see the world.

STAGES OF THE GAME

0 – 1 YEAR

 in the first year of life the baby plays more with his body and his mother’s body, even if he looks interested in objects around him. To explore and take consciousness of the space around him the baby moves his hands and legs repetitively.

2 YEARS

is the age when baby starts to feel the separation from his mother, and so he begins to face the crisis of anxiety and abandonment; that’s why in this period the baby starts to use a transitional object which takes the place of the mother-child bond during the mother absence. With the growth the baby will take consciousness of the mother figure, and he will abandon the transitional object.

 3 YEARS

at this age the baby starts the first socializing games. the baby shows interest to play with other babies. in this period usually the baby develops his immagination and tends to imitate the behaviors of others.

4 – 5 YEARS

 at this age, the play is expression of our own internal dynamic. Babies usually prefer to play with dolls, or “hide and seek”, “the doctor”. these games help to represent punishment or prohibitions that the baby suffered.
