Spielgaben

I think Spielgaben educational toys are ideal for home and classroom use. See my Spielgaben review and Montessori-Inspired Color Activities Using Wooden Toys and Free Printables for more information about Spielgaben. Even though they aren’t inexpensive, they’re definitely worth the price because of the high quality of materials and number of years your children or students can use them (ages 3-12). The Spielgaben complete set is currently $388 USD ($405 AUD or £240 GBP), including shipping to USA, AU, or UK. Including shipping, the Spielgaben complete set will be  US | UK | AU at USD $320 | GBP 195 | AUD 360. The offer is valid until March 15. If you go to the Spielgaben Contact Form and send Spielgaben an email mentioning Living Montessori Now, you will be contacted by Spielgaben and sent a USD invoice so you don’t have to deal with foreign exchange.

Montessori Services and For Small Hands

Shop Montessori Services

I’m thrilled to be an affiliate for Montessori Services … an absolutely FABULOUS company that has been one of my very favorite Montessori suppliers from the time I owned a Montessori school in the 1980s. It was also one of my favorite Montessori suppliers when I was a Montessori homeschooler in the 1990s. The materials from Montessori Services are just as wonderful today (even more so, since there are more of them)!

Montessori Services has two sites … Montessori Services and For Small Hands. Montessori Services has LOTS of products that are perfect for Montessori teachers, schools, and homeschools. Their focus is the primary classroom (3-6 years old) and practical life is their specialty. They do offer products in all curriculum areas, though, and for children younger and older than ages 3-6.

 

Shop For Small Hands

For Small Hands offers products specifically for Montessori at home. Child-size cooking, cleaning, woodworking, and yard & garden products are unique offerings you’ll find at For Small Hands. They also have a wide range of educational games and toys that work well as complements to a Montessori education. Their main age group is 3-6, but they have products for younger and older children as well.

Montessori Baby and Toddler Toys

You’ll find some of my favorite Montessori toys for babies and toddlers featuring a number of toys from For Small Hands in my Best Gifts for Kids: Montessori Baby and Toddler Toys.
