All of my creations are carefully designed with your child in mind. They are all soft, fabric/felt toys, perfect for at home, when you’re out around town or travelling. Each listing explains how the toy can contribute to your child’s development and some fun ideas on how to maximize the toys potential.
My activities for children are meant to encourage imagination, quiet play and develop their motor skills and independence. I am a strong believer in limiting screen time and empowering children to entertain themselves and be creative. My background includes ABA therapy and respite with preschool aged children living with different challenges such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and I am a qualified Montessori Preschool Teacher. I also have an undergraduate degree is Psychology. From my experience in these fields, as well as being a mother to 3 young boys, I have seen first hand the benefits of toys like those I make that challenge our children to problem solve and think outside of the box. I hope you find something that you or a child you know can enjoy and learn from!

The Lady Behind Meraki Toys...
Hello! My name is Rachel and I love to create. I started myraecreations in 2015 without a lot of focus, I simply loved creating things for my son and wanted to share my creations with others. Since then I have found my passion in creating learning toys and activities for children and put my focus on Meraki Toys.
When I’m not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 3 boys. We love being outside whether at home or hiking or skiing in the Canadian Rockies.
