What are Montessori toys?

Montessori toys motivate and teach your child to play freely and independently, practising skills needed in everyday life.

These toys support the Montessori method’s focus on hands-on, practical learning and are tailored to meet the developmental needs of children from infants to five-year-olds. They also promote sensory development and provide a tactile experience. They align with the Montessori approach to teaching, which aims to help children reach their full potential by giving them the freedom to pursue their interests. Montessori-inspired toys are made from natural materials, simply designed, and reinforce single skills, sparking curiosity and allowing for the repetition of skills needed in daily life.

By integrating Montessori toys early in your child’s life, you’re setting a foundation for enhanced cognitive, motor, and social skills. Montessori toys are often made from natural materials, which align with the Montessori philosophy.

Your child is imagination will be engaged for hours, solving all sorts of mini-tasks without asking you for help. These toys not only engage them but also encourage the development of fine motor skills and problem-solving abilities, supporting their growth in a fun, educational manner by focusing on practicing one skill at a time.

Did you know that 85% of a child’s brain volume develops by age three (A.S. Dekaban et al. 1978)? Choosing Montessori toys as early as possible means helping your little one reach their full potential. Early exposure to Montessori principles can significantly influence their learning and development trajectory, making playtime both fun and fruitful.

About InvenToy

The InvenToy team gathers around the shared belief of a group of parents, aunts, and uncles that they can make a real difference in the lives of the children they love. That’s us! We are driven by a passion for creating educational experiences that promote children’s well-being, learning, and fun.

We noticed a pattern we didn’t like: even the newest, shiniest toys were often left untouched, while screens and devices took too much of the children’s attention. This observation has driven us to develop toys that are not only educational but also irresistibly engaging.

Inspired by Maria Montessori’s philosophy, we took her child-centered approach that emphasizes hands-on, active learning and practical life skills and adapted it to fit today’s world. Our approach ensures that children enjoy their educational journey as much as they benefit from it.
