The Jai Jai Hooray Goddess Power Tower and Hindu Deity Flashcards put a fresh face on the iconic characters of Hindu mythology.
The Goddess Power Tower is a set of stacking blocks that feature the fierce female goddesses of Hinduism. The toy is inspired by Mahadevi who is the Mother Goddess—she is literally the sum of all of the female deities. By nesting the blocks, we bring to life the idea that inside of every woman, every mother are so many personas—nurturer, artist, warrior.
For children to better connect, the blocks build a poem that celebrates mom. The poem reads:
Lots of Hugs from Her Strong Arms
Mama is My Good Luck Charm
The Sun and Moon of Our Family
Teaching and Singing Joyously
Fierce Like Her Lion Roars
Gentle Like the Bath She Pours
Keeps the Monsters Away at Night
Mama Stays With Me Til’ Light
Loves to Dance, Loves to Play
Jai Jai Hooray!
Jai Jai Hooray is the first collection by Umani—an educational platform focused on more global play for global kids. We believe that cultural learning should be irresistible.
