  • The ‘Patience Pebbles’ were created by Gold Coast mum Jacqueline Yeats

Oprah Winfrey has named a unique toy created by an Australian mum in her quarterly list of her favourite items.

The ‘Patience Pebbles’ ($54.95) were created by Gold Coast mum and psychotherapist Jacqueline Yeats in an effort to ‘bring a calming effect into your family home as your little one discovers the art of mindfulness through play’.

The ‘pebbles’ are essentially wooden discs in either a rose or ‘sea foam’ colour that children can use to stack and build up ‘castles or rocket ships’.

The brand, Mindful & Co Kids, claim the pebbles ‘foster creativity, imagination and free play’, while also building ‘resilience, patience and independence’ and help to teach cause and effect.

Many parents also like the fact that the pebbles are sustainable and sold in muted shades, meaning they won’t look too bright or garish in your home.

Oprah isn’t the only fan of the ‘Patience Pebbles’ either. 

Reviews online for the unusual $54.95 buy are similarly glowing, where they boast an impressive five-star rating.

‘We’ve got two under two, and these have been an absolute lifesaver – they keep the big one entertained for ages while we tend to the little one!’ one mum wrote.

‘These patience pebbles are just perfect for quiet reflection time as well as fine motor development and just plain fun,’ another added.

A third wrote: ‘The quality of the products is beyond what I expected. Mindful & Co Kids have created their products with so much attention to detail, they are just gorgeous. I will definitely be making more purchases from this beautiful store’.

This isn’t the first time one of Jacqueline’s products have ended up on one of Oprah’s coveted lists.

Previously, the TV star selected other Mindful & Co items including an ABCs of Mindfulness book with hand-drawn illustrations and poems, and ‘affirmation’ colouring pencils.

Jacqueline Yeats took Mindful & Co Kids from start-up to stardom within two years, and she is now even stocked in the US megastore Bloomingdale’s.

The business started with a a yoga flash card game that encourages children to practise mindfulness on the go. 

Now, she sells a whole host of mindful-inspired games and toys and has a booming international business.
