What Are Montessori Toys? 

The Totli Box - Totli
Montessori toys follow the Montessori educational approach, which focuses on independence, hands-on discovery, and learning through play. This method was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, an inspirational educator. She championed women's rights and transformed early childhood education. The Montessori method encourages children to explore, experiment, and discover the world around them.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Montessori Toys

    What Sets Montessori Toys Apart from Traditional Toys?

    Montessori toys target specific skills, such as the classic mirror puzzle toy, encouraging repeated practice until mastery. They refine fine and gross motor skills, fostering meaningful developmental growth without the distraction of lights or sounds.

    Are Montessori Toys Limited to Wood, or Can They Be Made of Plastic?

    While Montessori toys can be made of both wood and plastic, wooden toys have a special allure due to their natural beauty and tactile appeal. Wooden toys are durable, eco-friendly, and often become cherished keepsakes passed down through generations.

    Are open-ended toys considered Montessori toys?

    Montessori toys are 'close-ended,' presenting specific tasks or problems for children to solve. This focus fosters concentration and satisfaction as children master new skills through repeated practice.

    Do Montessori toys come in vibrant colours?

    Yes, but with purposeful design. For example, in our play silks, colours are used to show colour blending.

    Whether you're looking for toys to help your little one develop their fine motor skills, problem-solving skills, or coordination skills, we have a wonderful range of Montessori toys to explore.
