Kids Educational Toys & Games
What Are Montessori Toddler Toys?
We all want the best for our children, but what makes one toy more beneficial than the other? With so many options available, understanding what a quality educational toy is and why it may benefit your child is important.
What You Should Know About Montessori Toddler Toys
So, what exactly is a Montessori toy?
- Montessori toys are different from the loud, quick-paced, electronic toys often promoted for toddlers. Montessori toys are simple and encourage learning through children being able to notice mistakes and develop a sense of independence and responsibility.
- Montessori toys were developed to give children a starting point in understanding the real world through senses such as touch. The toys were set up so children could notice mistakes on their own, promoting a sense of self-reliance and the ability to fix things themselves.
- Montessori toys are mostly made with natural materials. These materials are not only better for your child’s health but promote their ability to become accustomed to how real-world items feel. Plastic often does not promote a real-world feel in the way natural materials such as wood do.
Benefits of Montessori Toddler Toys
The benefits of Montessori toys are endless, but here are a few we think are great.
- Wooden toys are far more durable than plastic and made to last. Montessori toys primarily use wood to create safe and durable toys for children.
- We all want a better environment for our children. Montessori toys are mostly made with natural materials that are far less invasive to the environment.
- Montessori toys promote children being self-sufficient and encourage focus and determination. The flashing lights and music of most toddler-friendly toys often distract from a child’s ability to learn. Montessori toys require focus and can help children become accustomed to quiet activities in the school environment.

Omg I my kids loved this fraction set from the moment they saw it. It reminded me of my time at school. It’s easy to use and explain, there was no problem relating it to objects around my house as it’s compact and light. This is something I will hold onto for when I hopefully become a grandmother one day.
We love our Heydoodle Mat! The perfect distraction while waiting for food while out and about. We even made a little friend while out in the Fergie’s valley as the temptation to come and join in on the fun was too much !
Folds small/easy to travel with, lots of pictures in the space to keep little hands busy, easy to wipe off.
Perfect birthday gift or stocking filler
