ʻekahi is one. ʻelua is two. ʻA kamaʻa (means) no more shoes. ʻekolu is three. ʻeha is four. pani ka puka, shut the door. ʻelima is 5. ʻeono is 6. Honi iaʻu, give me a kiss! ʻehiku is 7. ʻewalu is 8. mai uluohi, donʻt be late. ʻeiwa is 9. umi is 10. ʻolelo hou means, say it again.
In this case, we are using ʻole which means 0 instead of umi for 10. But never the less, that sweet little mele is perfect for you keiki to have a fun way to learn how to count in ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi.
This educational item was definitely a labor of love. The countless time spent designing and researching so that your keiki receives the best quality. This puzzle measures 10.75" x 7.5". We used a non toxic, keiki friendly and food safe paint & waterproof sealant that doesnʻt contain all those harsh added chemicals. Letʻs face it, no matter how hard we try, our kids alllllways put everything in their mouths! So having something that was non toxic and food safe was very important to me.
Our PRE-ORDER sets will include the keiki puzzle, (1) set of 1/8" wooden pieces, (1) set of 1/4" clear acrylic pieces, a cotton bag with elastic opening to keep your puzzle pieces safe and a fun flash card for Nā Helu (numbers) and Nā Waihoʻoluʻu (Colors) on the board. The perfect way to help integrate ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi into a fun activity!
*Pre-Orders will have a 2 week turn around time (or sooner). There are limited sets available.
--Nā Helu Puzzles will officially launch on March 1st and will only come with the Wooden Pieces, Cotton Bag & Flash Card. There will be an option to add acrylic pieces to your set.
*Disclaimer - This is meant to be for educational purposes and not a toy. Please be sure to watch your keiki as they are using this item to ensure they do not put it in their mouth and become a choking hazard. Mahalo nui!
