Inspired by the Montessori philosophy, our Play Kits are concrete representations of abstract concepts, with a control of error such that the material itself is the “teacher”. They are also open-ended, allowing each material to be manipulated in many different ways. These simple materials isolate and focus on a single sense and hone in on only one particular concept at a time. Designed to be progressive, our Play Kits see our little ones from infancy through toddlerhood.
The Baby Play Kit includes:
The Ball and Cup is a classic Montessori material that encourages little ones to hold the ball in a palmar grasp position. The cup, crafted to take the shape of the ball, encourages them to toss the ball out of the cup and eventually working to put it back into the cup, promoting hand-eye coordination.
These individual shape puzzles can be introduced to little ones one at a time to provide them with a glimpse into the world of geometry. Each base frame is shaped to its corresponding shape puzzle to establish the recognition of the shape when they are working to put them together.
Crafted to be a flat light-weighted piece with a knob, the Circle Pincer Puzzle encourages little ones to hold the piece in a pincer grasp manner while focusing on bringing the circle puzzle in and out of the base frame.
Considered a type of first puzzle, the Palmar & Pincer Grasp Blocks consists of a pole and a knob with cylinder to develop palmar and pincer grasps. For the Palmar Grasp Block, little ones learn to place the pole into the base then grabs onto it and pulls it out. The pincer grasp is usually introduced after the palmar grasp and little ones love to have their thumbs and forefingers grab the cylinder out of the base and place it back in. The shapes and sizes of the pole, cylinder and block are crafted for our little ones to hold it comfortably while strengthening their grasp holds.
Sized to be perfect for tiny hands, the Cube Rattle produces a gentle and delightful rattle sound that would captivate little ones to reach and grab.
Introduced as one of the first toys, the Interlocking Discs develop holding and grabbing with tiny hands to practise hand-to-hand transfer. Perfect as a teether, it is also wonderful to entice little ones to reach out with its interesting rolling pattern.
The gentle sounds of the rolling coloured balls would captivate little ones to reach for the Ball Cylinder. The rods are sized for their little hands to grab onto to explore the cause (shaking the cylinder) and the effect (of the sound created by the rapid moving balls on the surfaces).
