Montessori Baby Toys

Montessori Baby Toys is a special collection of five toys made just for infants and toddlers.  Each toy is from or inspired by the Assistant to Infancy Montessori training for ages 0 to 3.


Generous friends shared these patterns with me when I was pregnant with my daughter.  In making them for her, I realized how beautiful and simple they were, and wanted to help other families have such perfect little first toys.


The toys come in an organza gift bag with an information card that gives the approximate age at which to offer each toy and the purpose of each.


The toys are intended for around 3 months and up.


See them in our Etsy shop!

Made from soft cotton yarn, crocheted around a bell, and around a ring.  Both toys have elastic at the top so that there is some give as the infant pulls on them.


Hang either the bell or the ring from a ceiling or wall hanger so that it is just in reach for the infant’s outstretched hand. 


In the Montessori home environment these toys are hung above the movement area, which consists of a low mat on the floor beside a wall with a low mirror.  This is also where the mobiles are hung for the infant to view. 


The toys come in an organza gift bag with an information card that describes how they are to be used.
