As our 6th and final giveaway we are offering up a Five Pack of Toys from Beginning Montessori! This pack makes the perfect set of toys to get started with Montessori. I am a little biased about these toys as my husband makes them. This company was born right out of my AtoI Montessori training. As the course transformed me and how I saw infants, purchasing baby shower gifts became increasingly difficult. During our training we made many materials and I asked my husband to help me make the bell rattle. We had leftover dowel so my husband asked if any of the other women from my course would like a bell rattle. Well, the orders flew in! My husband then came to the training centre and checked out the materials telling me he could make many of the items. He was just as excited as I was! He grew up around wood crafting as his parents made wooden toys and he’s had lots of advice along the way as we developed our products. With his ability to make the toys and my Montessori trained eye for detail, with special attention for how it would aid a young child’s development, we developed our product line to include:
Amongst other materials which you can check out on our website. Since we’ve observed our daughter A. use these toys, we’ve tweaked a couple of them but most were already perfect. It has been such a joy for me to see A. use these materials! It has been such a joy for me to see all of the Montessori Moms babies use these toys! (From top to bottom you can see Christie’s sons R. and P.. my daughter A. with the interlocking discs, and Tomoko’s daughters M. and E.) It continues to be such a joy for me to see many, many babies enjoy these toys. I know at a deeper level how much the child is gaining through their usage of these toys so it just delights me! You can read a short description of each material on the website and in addition, each toy comes with a product card describing the purpose and usage of each toy. If you’re looking for cleaning information, please check our facebook page note on cleaning our materials.
This Five Pack of Montessori Baby Toys was designed to be a perfect baby shower or first gift for the child. The cost of the five pack is $48 and the giveaway includes free, international shipping. A few of the toys can start to be enjoyed within the first months of the child’s life. They will aid the child’s development, and continue to be enjoyed, throughout the child’s first year. These toys will also last for multiple children and in infant communities. They are great quality and beautifully made. They make great teething toys and you can be sure they are safe to be mouthed on by an infant as they are hand-made with natural materials. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!
