- The Patience Pebbles were created by Gold Coast mother Jacqueline Yeats

Oprah Winfrey has added a one-of-a-kind toy created by an Australian mom to her quarterly list of her favorite items.
The Patience Pebbles ($54.95) were created by Gold Coast mom and psychotherapist Jacqueline Yeats to “bring a calming effect into your family home as your child discovers the art of mindfulness through play.”
The “Pebbles” are essentially “rose” or “sea foam” colored wooden discs that kids can use to stack and build “castles or rocket ships.”
Oprah Winfrey named a unique toy created by an Australian mom in her quarterly list of her favorite items (Patience Pebbles pictured).
Oprah (pictured) said of the pebbles, “Kids and adults alike will love these Patience Pebbles.”
The Mindful & Co Kids brand claims that the pebbles “encourage creativity, imagination and free play” while also building “resilience, patience and independence” and helping to teach cause and effect.
Many parents also like the fact that the pebbles are sustainable and sold in muted tones, meaning they won’t look too garish or garish in your home.

Oprah isn’t the only Patience Pebbles fan either.
Online reviews for the unusual $54.95 purchase are similarly glowing, where it boasts an impressive five-star rating.
“We have two kids under two and these are absolute lifesavers – they keep the big ones entertained while we take care of the little ones!” wrote one mother.
“These patience stones are just perfect for quiet reflection time as well as fine motor development and just plain fun,” added another.
A third wrote: “The quality of the products exceeds my expectations. Mindful & Co Kids have created their products with so much attention to detail, they are just beautiful. I will definitely be making more purchases from this lovely store.’

This isn’t the first time one of Jacqueline’s products has landed on one of Oprah’s coveted lists.
The TV star had previously selected other Mindful & Co items, including an ABCs of Mindfulness book with hand-drawn illustrations and poems, and Affirmations colored pencils.
Jacqueline Yeats turned Mindful & Co Kids from start-up to star within two years and is now even represented in the US megastore Bloomingdale’s.
The business started with a yoga flash card game that encourages kids to practice mindfulness on the go.
Now she sells a whole range of mindfulness-inspired games and toys and has a booming international business.
