Our toys were designed to encourage young minds to create and imagine, to think out of the box. The moms at MWT also believe in presenting fewer but better materials in a child’s environment. Through this idea, values such as order, simplicity, self-reliance and independence are nurtured and imbibed in a child.
We developed the WoodButter for children to further enrich the experience, to improve on those cognitive skills, specifically a child’s executive function - to plan ahead with an end in mind, to accomplish an objective. We want our children to not only play with their toys, but also to care for them. Made by hand with all natural ingredients - virgin coconut oil, beeswax, and sweet orange essential oil - accidental ingestion is completely safe and won’t attract ants and bugs, but repel them.
Guide them with the steps at first then step back and watch in wonder. Break the steps into simple chunks - put toy on the table, prepare the WoodButter and a rag (use a clean one, or an old sock!), dab on the polish, then buff the surface. Wipe dry then set aside.
Yes, your children can polish. They can clean and they can pack away. These are things we take for granted and do for them at any instant. Trust that they can do it and they will willingly do it without a parent having to nag!
