Our new favorite gift from baby through toddlerhood. My baby boy, Ben, has been WAY more into these toys every day than any other. We love how these play kits have a Montessori focus and the invitation to create. Take a look at all of the stage-based play kits tailored to each phase of a child’s brain development.

The Montessori Shelf
My personal FAVORITE. Whether you use this in addition to your play kits or opt out of play kits and have this as a personal shelf in your play room, it is SO inviting for little ones to take part in so many independent, brain boosting activities! The ultimate holiday or birthday gift for the littles!

The Explorer Play Kit
Babies at 9-10 months are like little explorers. They begin to explore cause and effect, see how objects balance, and build emotional intelligence. The Explorer play kit brings entertainment through jingle keys, play blocks, an egg cup, and gripping canisters.
The Thinker Play Kit
Time to round out that first year of life with pretend play, problem-solving, and hand-eye coordination skills. The Thinker play kit comes with wooden peg drop, baby doll, and slider box to keep your little one occupied!
The Babbler Play Kit
This is Ben’s first ever play kit…the one that has us HOOKED! Pushing carrots through their holes, stacking rings, and peek a boo puzzles were a hit, but his all-time favorite was the slide and seek ball run! His four older siblings had to have their try at it too 🙂
The Pioneer Play Kit
Time to work on that two-handed coordination and explore gravity and motion in your little one’s world! The race and chase car ramp is a fan favorite, while the vegetable puzzle and fuzzy bug shrub only add to the excitement.
The Realist Play Kit
Let’s get real…this play kit offers so much exploration and wonder! The lockbox, quilted critter pockets, flashlight, pitcher + glass lend themselves to concentration building, new sensory experiences, and counting practice! This is ideal for toddlers at 19-21 months old.
The Companion Play Kit
It’s time to work on that bilateral coordination, experiment with spatial relationships, and process those little (and big!) emotions. The mosaic button board, buckle barrel, and wooden posting stand will be timeless toys to add to the collection!
The Helper Play Kit
Who’s a big helper!? Time to build routines, fine tune that fine motor precision, and work on those problem solving skills. The drop and match dot catcher, the art kit, the flower bouquet, and the double-sided puzzle will keep that curious mind working all day!
