Montessori & Me offers honest, quality wooden Montessori materials that I'm sure Dr. Montessori would have approved of. I am so happy to find these learning tools at a price that makes sense.
Starting Montessori homeschooling with my little one this fall. The tracing board is just what I needed!
Amazing customer service...and that is hard to find! They care and it really shows.
"Children acquire knowledge through experience in the environment."
The development of object permanence, or the ability to understand that objects exist even when not seen or felt, is one of an infant’s primary developmental accomplishments.
Let me start off my saying this bookshelf is so beautiful! The first thing I noticed when we opened the box was the quality of the wood. Everything looks as though it was meticulously hand picked when designing to make sure the quality of this bookshelf was a priority. Putting it together was easy to follow and quick. We put it in our soon to be nursery and it was the perfect size! It’s heavier and sturdy so I know my baby will be safe when she eventually climbs/uses it to stand up to pick out her books! Love that it promotes independence and options as well. I would love to buy another for my toddler- he loves it as well!
My 4 year old granddaughter likes practicing on this to get ready to build a birdhouse. I think she's now ready!
I was quite pleased with the quality of this math manipulative. The wooden surfaces were smooth and an appropriate size for utility for the two-year-old for whom I purchased the set. She loves them. The linen pouch is sturdy and durable. I highly recommend this product.
We homeschool and my kids absolutely love learning and counting with this set! It has great quality, very smooth peg pieces and no rugged ridges. Very cute, very simple to use.
I definitely recommend this Montessori bookshelf! My daughter was so excited to get it as a Christmas present. She loves being able to choose her own books and this shelf was the perfect height for her. The bookshelf was easy to put together (took about 10-15 minutes) and the quality is great too!
This is a great gift for kids. Definitely needs to be supervised at play time but they love being able to use “real” tools like the adults.
Bought these for my son's 5th birthday and they are great! They are very sturdy and my 5 year old has no problem locking and unlocking them.
I bought a similar version of this for my kids when they were little, and they loved it. So I know this is a good toy for kids from those just standing: they can use it to help hold themselves up to kids up until about 5. Even older kids seem drawn to it for some reason.I love a toy that entertains kids without lights or sounds. I love a toy that isn't plastic.The one I bought years ago had brightly colored rubberized balls. This has muted color much harder balls. On a hard surface, when these fall off the toy, you are going to hear it.The only thing that could improve this toy is if they had a place for the balls to rest on top of the toy. My littles kept trying to set the balls on top, but they just roll off.I gave it as a gift to my great niece and nephew, and they both played with it as soon as they opened it and as soon as they got home.
We love this Montessori bookshelf and so does our 15 month old! It’s a great size for her so she can see all the books and pick one for us to read together. Great quality. Definitely recommend!
I wanted a small bookshelf for my living room that held enough books but didn't take over the space and this fit the bill! It wasn't too difficult to put together - although it can be assembled by one person alone, it helps to have another person help so pieces align better!Each shelf can hold 2 books, you can get away with three if the books are thin.Perfect size for a crawling baby!
Thank you for putting something so simple but useful together. Great for my toddlers to learn. I encourage all young parents to try this out for their kids. I originally thought my son would love this more. I was wrong. My daughter loves it more than my son did. She is been playing with it no stop for couple of days now.
My son’s preschool teacher had this on her classroom wishlist, and from what I’ve heard, it has been a great tool for the kids! It’s also pretty durable, as it is still intact after being in the hands of a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds ! Great gift for teachers..and even something different to have in waiting rooms (doctor’s and dentist’s offices, etc) to keep kids entertained for awhile!
This is a wonderfully designed product that is educational and engaging for toddler children! It is currently in my Montessori toddler classroom and has held up against active toddler hands and bodies. It's fallen over m, been stepped on, and yanked from other hands and yet it's still just as durable and study as when I first opened it. The height is smaller than other ball trackers, but I like it because it's safer for my toddlers as well as easier to move around. The grooves at the top (to hold the balls when not in use) is something very smart and unseen before!
