Collection: Montessori Toys

The Montessori method is a teaching philosophy developed by a physician, Maria Montessori, that focuses on self-directed, hands on, and collaborative play and learning. 

Montessori can also be a click bait buzzword that is often attached to toy brands seeking to attract those who have heard of Montessori, but aren't quite sure what qualifies.  At Marley & Moose, we have the formal education and professional experience to know what toys truly meet the criteria for that perfect Montessori playroom and we've curated this collection to get you on the right track.

So what makes a toy Montessori?  Check out our blog for more on what is Montessori, but be sure at minimum it checks all the boxes:

  • Realistic toys based on reality
  • Natural materials
  • Single task
  • Simple design - no batteries!
  • Zero Batteries

    The mind is much more powerful than a screen or anything charged by a battery.

  • Responsibly Sourced

    Repurposed sawdust, recycled plastic, fair trade, FSC certified wood, and GOTS certified cotton are not just buzzwords to us.

  • Child Development

    Empower your child with toys designed to hone their skills and free their minds.
