Tales of Mermaids Play Cloth by Wondercloths

 Another play cloth that inspires my inner child and brings back so many memories. I would take baths in our original claw foot bathtub. We had a large chunky natural sea sponge and I wash clothes and my mermaid dolls. I would play for what seemed like hours in the tub with my mermaids bobbing through the waves, resting on the sea sponge. Legend says, where there is deep water, there’s mermaids. Dive into the rich blues of the ocean and make friends with one of the most elusive mythical creatures… the mermaids!

Add in some natural sea sponges, stones, shells, driftwood, play silks, coloured pom poms, wool marbles, pirate treasure and other bling and you have yourself a gorgeous inpsired play world for your mermaid figurines and mermaid dolls!

This beautifully hand-illustrated play cloth is an open-ended resource that inspires fun & learning through self-directed play.

From small world play to den building, from dressing up to wrapping presents, children can dance with it, let it blow in the wind, tie it on a stick, wear it as a cape or even hang it on the wall as a piece of art.

Your child decides how to use the cloth, and that’s where the magic lies…

Wondercloths came to life because Vi, the creator of Wondercloths couldn’t find a vegan play silk. They owned a beautiful wooden play frame over which they loved to drape materials over. When her youngest was a few months old she started searching for a night sky cloth but had no luck in finding one, so she set out to make her own. She partnered up with an amazing freelance artist who brought her visionary designs to life, and was lucky enough to find a production partner who cared as much about the planet as she did. Wondercloths was born.

She loves open ended toys, toys that spark imagination, toys that foster independent play and toys that make learning fun & visual and her play cloths do just that!
