"Since he must develop himself through his movements, through the work of his hands, he has need of objects with which he can work that provide motivation for his activity."
- Maria Montessori

I sold my first toys on Etsy in September 2008 when my daughter was 8 months old. We continue to love preparing these toys and selling them through Etsy as well as The Michael Olaf Joyful Child web site, a Montessori resource for families and classrooms. We value the connections we have made through this little shop.

Thank you for your continuing support and effort to share Montessori with infants and the youngest children.

Information about the toys:

The Montessori Baby Toys are based on those from the AMI Montessori Assistants to Infancy (0-3) course. These beautiful and simple toys are made to complement the growing infant’s natural physical development. Generous friends who had taken the course shared these patterns with me when I was pregnant with my daughter. As a mom, and a handworks enthusiast, I was inspired to make and offer them to other families.

I include an information card with each bag that suggests when it is most likely your baby will show interest in them and what their basic purpose is.

The toys are not painted, stained, sealed or glued. Each toy ages beautifully with use.

The cotton rattles are safe in the washer and dryer.
