Essential Montessori Baby Shower Gift Set - Five Pack
Materials: Wood, Olive Oil, Beeswax, Leather, Bell, All natural dye, metal eye hook, Nontoxic glue
This 5 pack includes the following five classic Montessori Materials:
Large Rolling Ball Cylinder
The interlocking discs are one of the first developmental materials that can be offered to infants. First, they will aid with the grasping reflex of the child as they learn to handle the material and even transfer it from hand to hand. Further, the design of this item allows it to gently roll away when placed on the floor - encouraging your little one to chase after it once he or she has started crawling! It measures about 3 1/2" long by 2 1/4" high. **The discs included will be shipped "glued" unless you would prefer that they be shipped "un-glued." These options would need to be specified in the note to seller:
Fixed (glued): These discs are glued together with non-toxic glue so that they may be used in hand-to-hand transfer by the child as well as rolling away when child first becomes mobile.
Puzzle (un-glued): These discs are not glued together and fit together like a puzzle, allowing the child to practice fine motor skills. The item also rolls for movement and can be used for hand-to-hand transfer by the child, however the discs will come apart.
ROLLING BALL CYLINDER:
This Montessori inspired rolling ball cylinder can be rolled or shaken and is great fun for the child who is learning to crawl and can chase after it. We recommend introducing it at about 7 months of age, or when learning to crawl, if earlier. The wooden balls on the inside make a very pleasant clacking sound as the cylinder is moved around. It is about 7 inches long and 2.5 inches wide.

This Montessori inspired rolling bell cylinder can be rolled or shaken and is great fun for the child who is learning to crawl and can chase after it. We recommend introducing at 6 months old, or while learning to crawl, if earlier. The bell on the inside makes a very pleasant sound as the cylinder is moved around. It is about 3.5 inches long.
Please note that this bell shaker is not appropriate for children who are mouthing. It can be presented to children before they have begun mouthing, and again as a musical instrument after they are no longer mouthing objects. The child's play should be monitored at all times.
The sound intrigues the baby as they learn how their movements can influence the pleasing sound of the bells. The small bells are attached to the ends of this 3/8 inch wooden dowel. Approximately 6 inches long, it's small enough for your baby to handle easily.
This Montessori inspired grasping material is to be used starting at around 2.5 - 3 months old to help develop grasp. It is made out of birch hardwoods and secured with a leather lace for a total of about 7" long. This item is hand-finished in a completely natural homemade beeswax/olive oil blend.
We use vegetable-tanned leather made from the most superior skins available. The dyes are certified 100% Lead-Free and meet all requirements of the German Goods Ordinance, REACH (European Union), RoSH (U.K.), and CPSIA (U.S.) which require consumer goods to be free of Lead, AZO’s and carcinogenic chemicals.
This material is available in a variety of colors including natural, pink, green, orange, yellow, and purple. The colors are created through homemade dyes, using all natural ingredients: blueberries, red cabbage, beets, and turmeric. The colors are more subtle than commercial dyes, so please see the picture with example colors.
The end caps of the rollers are available in a variety of colors including natural, pink, orange, green, yellow, and purple. The colors are created through homemade dyes, using all natural ingredients: blueberries, red cabbage, onions, beets, and turmeric. The colors are more subtle than commercial dyes and paints, giving the pieces a vintage look and keeping them completely natural.
The wood is finished in a natural homemade beeswax/olive oil blend.

Absolutely beautiful and good quality. I am so excited to watch my baby grow and develop with these toys! I definitely recommend EssentialMontessori's toys-I am not disappointed!!
These are absolutely gorgeous. My almost-9-week-old can already hold and shake the narrow bell rattle! She’s just starting to be interested in toys as of the last few weeks, so I’m really excited to see her grow up and start to play with these one by one!
Quality is great. It came with detailed care instructions as well. I live in desert conditions so by the time I received it, it was a little drier and rougher than I'd like, but not so much that I needed to add more beeswax or oil right away. I gave it to my 3mo out of the box just fine. So I plan on using the care instructions to maintain the wood.
I love that you can customize the stains. They were even nice enough to swipe out the bell rattle for a wooden rattle like I requested. They were easy to work with and responded quickly. The toys are great quality.
