Maple plywood, birch plywood and white melamine. We choose these woods for their good looks, sturdiness, and eco-friendliness. They meet the strict California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards, ensuring they are safe for indoor air and environmentally friendly. This choice reflects our commitment to environmental care and delivering top-quality, safe products.

Natural Maple Plywood - It's got a smooth, hand-varnished finish and edges we tint just a bit to give it that cool, minimalist Scandinavian vibe. Plus, it’s a bit lighter in color, giving it a fresh, modern look.

Natural Birch Plywood - This one comes pre-finished from our supplier for a nice, clear look. We hand-seal the edges to enhance the layers’ natural patterns, and it's got a slightly, just slightly richer hue than maple, which really warms up the place.

White Melamine - for all the white parts that you see in the pictures, to bring a nice neutral balance to your space.

More about CARB 2 and TSCA Title VI

CARB 2 is a California regulation that sets strict limits on formaldehyde emissions from hardwood plywood, particleboard, and MDF. It mandates third-party certification and periodic testing to ensure products comply with these standards.

TSCA Title VI is a federal regulation under the Toxic Substances Control Act. It establishes national formaldehyde emission standards for composite wood products, aligning closely with CARB 2. This regulation requires third-party certification and proper labelling.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Papaya Mini Shelf for? How use does it have?

If you're looking for a way to enhance your child's Montessori learning experience, a mini shelf can be a valuable tool. Here are some ideas for using your mini shelf:

  • Next to a weaning table: Place your mini shelf next to your child's weaning table to store plates, cutlery, and cups. You can also add a dedicated spot for your child to put their dishes once they are done. This will help to promote your child's independence and self-confidence during mealtime.
  • Art supplies: Use your mini shelf to store art supplies such as paints, brushes, and paper. This creates a dedicated space for your child to work on art projects independently, which can foster creativity and self-expression.
  • Water dispenser: Add a small water dispenser to your mini shelf to allow your child to access water independently. This helps to promote their self-sufficiency and sense of personal responsibility.
  • Self-care space: You can also create a self-care space on your mini shelf. Add a mirror to the wall and provide items like a brush, comb, and other personal care items. This allows your child to take care of themselves independently, promoting their self-confidence and personal responsibility.

By using your mini shelf in these ways, you can provide your child with a dedicated space to learn and grow independently.
