The term 'Montessori Inspired' can mean very different things to to many different people. Here at My Happy Helpers, we consider ourselves to be a progressive, Montessori Inspired Team. Which means we absolutely love the theory behind the Montessori Philosophy, but we tend to design activities that would be considered more of a Montessori extension, rather than an authentic Montessori Activity. We believe there is a need and a place in modern parenting for Montessori educational philosophies and we pride ourselves on developing and designing products that can help merge the modern parent with traditional philosophies that result in a positive learning outcome for our children.

Why buy Montessori toys for kids?
Montessori education, developed by Maria Montessori over the course of a fifty year pedagogical career, is aimed at nurturing children’s development using a self-directed educational approach. The benefits of the program have been studied and noted time and time again, with kids of all ages benefitting from the freedom to learn as they see fit. Montessori toys for kids use the principles of the Montessori program to help your children explore the world around them in novel ways, making them a great addition to your child’s playset!
Are Montessori toys expensive?
Our Montessori-inspired toys are priced at a similar rate as the rest of our toys. Some are very affordable, such as this Nut Sequencing Board and this Wooden Montessori Puzzle. Both will keep your child’s mind activated and engaged, for as little as $29.95. Some of our larger, more complex Montessori toys are slightly more expensive. Buy this Metal Clothes Line to give your child endless amounts of play in your backyard, or teach them about the weather using this Wooden Weather Station, where they can learn about seasons, temperature, sunshine and rainfall.
You can buy both of these Montessori-inspired toys for under $100.
What are the different types of Montessori toys?
Montessori toys are aimed at assisting your child in self-directed play, and there are many types of toys which achieve this. Some are directly focused on encouraging your child in nature, such as this Calm and Breezy Kids Garden Tool Set. Others allow your child to experiment with kitchen tools, to see how different utensils and simple appliances interact with food. You can buy classic Montessori puzzles, such as this one with wooden shapes. Some of our larger puzzles allow your child to explore the world underwater, and help them to recognise shapes, patterns and colours.
