    Products

    Yes! Our wooden toys are hand-crafted in China and Thailand from FSC Certified wood, using baby-safe non-toxic paint and finishes. Each Playkit has been tested to ensure the toys and tools are age-appropriate, engaging, and universally appealing.

    Monti&Me Playkits are designed by experts to help babies learn by doing what they do best: playing & exploring their world!

    They’re filled with age-and stage specific Montessori toys, tools and books, carefully curated to meet the developmental needs of your child. 

    The Playkits include an in-depth Playguide to help parents feel connected to the ways your baby is experiencing the world and ideas for play at each stage.

    Monti&Me Playkits are thoughtfully crafted based on the NIDO Montessori curriculum taught in infant and toddler classrooms around the world. The Playguides have been co-created with AMI-certified Montessori child educators.

    Additionally, each Playkit has been rigorously tested with babies and parents to ensure the toys and tools are age-appropriate, engaging, and universally appealing.

    Each Monti&Me Playkit is based on the accredited NIDO 0 – 3 Montessori curriculum that is used in pre-schools and early childhood education centres around the world. Each Playkit offers the appropriate level of challenge for each stage of development. 

    The information and inspiration inside the Playguides is co-created with AMI-certified Montessori child educators.

    While the toys in each Playkit are introduced over a three month period, your baby will continue to benefit for months and even years to come. These Montessori toys are designed to grow with your child, presenting new challenges as she develops. Our Playguides provide ideas on rotating toys to keep your little one engaged and stimulated.

    We’re looking to expand to a Subscription Box model in the future but for now, you’ll need to order each Playkit separately. If you’re wanting to add Monti&Me Playkits to your Baby Shower wish list, we recommend our gift card range.

    We are unable to sell the toys individually. We have curated these playkits to take to make it quick and easy for you to purchase all you need for your baby at a particular development stage. Bringing you convenience and more time to spent being present with your family. 

    We partnered with child development and early education experts who are internationally certified in Montessori education for ages 0-6. In addition, Monti&Me Playkits are based on the NIDO Montessori curriculum taught in infant and toddler classrooms around the world.

    You can pre-order! If you’re happy with the expected delivery date, lock in a Playkit from our next shipment. 

    Yep! You can even add a cute note. Just drop your message into the delivery notes at checkout. Monti&Me Playkits make the perfect gift!

    Yes! We hope to expand our range in 2021. Please join the newsletter on our home page for any updates.

    Montessori

    What attracts many parents initially to Montessori toys is how aesthetically pleasing they are. They FEEL GOOD to be around. They're simple, educational and allow children to explore cause and effect.

    Typically Montessori toys are made of natural materials and fibres such as wood, cotton, wool or natural rubber.

    They are designed to invite investigation and self-correction without being over-stimulating.

    Montessori toys are designed to meet your child’s developmental milestones and to provide just enough challenge to encourage repetition.

    They were specifically designed with educational outcomes in mind, without being over-stimulating.

    We partnered with child development and early education experts who are internationally certified in Montessori education for ages 0-6.
