The Best Montessori Toys for Babies and Toddlers

My husband and I subscribed to the Montessori-style of learning early on, so finding the best Montessori toys was essential for us. It’s always been important to us to encourage Josephine to be independent and responsible (the book The Montessori Toddler is a great resource in providing the background on this philosophy). At 15 months, Josie puts her clothes in the hamper, wipes up her tray after meals, and puts her toys back when she’s finished.

The Lovevery Play Kits have been part of our home since Josephine came home from the hospital. We received our first play kit as a baby shower gift. Since then, we have invested in nearly every follow-on kit and recommended the brand to countless friends and family members. These are, true statements, the only toys we have purchased for our daughter.

The Lovevery play essentials are built around the Montessori philosophy and encourage independent play for your little one. You’ll notice that each of the toys, like the ball-drop box and the car ramp (pictured in the box below), allow the child to practice a single skill at a time until they can master it.

It’s been truly amazing to see the level of focus that Josie has while interacting with these toys. That has been the most fun thing to watch as the parent: your child figuring out and learning how things work.

Right now, Lovevery has developed play kits from age birth through 24 months. They’ve also launched a few additional toys, including the block set, stroller, and collapsible tunnel. I’m looking forward to seeing how this brand continues to expand its product line, and I’m sure we’ll love each new piece as much as we love our current play kits.

3 Reasons Lovevery Kits are the Best Montessori Toys for Babies & Toddlers

  • Each kit is specially designed for your child’s age.

    That means there’s no guessing which toys are going to be best for your child’s development throughout their first few years–the research has already been done for you. As new parents, it’s overwhelming enough to figure out what stroller, crib, and car seat you need for your baby. Trying to also research what toys are developmentally appropriate for your little one is just one more stressor to add to the list.

  • They are beautiful and well-made.

    Lovevery follows the Montessori philosophy, which means that each toy is beautifully made with natural materials. The brand uses sustainably harvested wood, organic cotton, baby-safe plastics in all of their products. With every kit, it’s obvious that these toys are high quality and made to last, which is perfect for anyone wanting more than one child.

  • The Play Guides make parenting easy.

    Each kit comes with a guide book describing the included items and ways you can use them to help your little one learn. The guides also outline developmental milestones that you can expect during that particular stage. Again, this takes some stress out of what to expect from your child as they grow. This is especially helpful for first-time parents who really aren’t sure what to expect when (that would be us!).

Ready to give it a try?

I really cannot say enough great things about this company and their products. I’ve recently written them, requesting that they start selling their books individually. Josie will ask to read these books over and over, she never seems to tire of them. If they came out with a la carte books, I would be first in line!

If you, or someone you know, has a little one that would love this company, too, you can get $20 off your first order by using my referral link. I would love to know if you love them as much as we do!
