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 Toddler Play Kit includes:
A chunky puzzle that introduces the circle, triangle and square. With three shapes together, little ones work through placing the shape puzzle into the correct base. This puzzle can be introduced after they have mastered single-shape puzzles.
While working to place the circles into their respective bases, little ones will discover the concept of size discrimination. As they work to determine the puzzle that will fit the base, they will form a clear view of the edges while putting the pieces together.
This Rings on Horizontal Dowel helps little ones build on hand, eye and precision coordination. The horizontal stacking presents a novel challenge for little ones. The three loose rings could be introduced first before they advance to stacking the three tight rings for more precise movement.
The Nine Poles Palmar Puzzle presents a higher difficulty to the Three Poles Palmar Puzzle and helps develop our little ones’ concentration. The arrangement of the poles helps establish the concept of ordering height and width of the poles.
Modelled to have varied sizes of the rings, the three circular rings introduces the concept and visualisation of small, medium, large sizes. Each ring is made of contrasting wood tones to emphasise the order of the rings.
Sized perfectly for the hands of our little ones, this toy encourages the motion of twisting and untwisting to promote fine motor skills. It doubles up as a tool in the kitchen to crack nuts!
Each product is delicately crafted from hinoki, eucalyptus, walnut, beech, eucari and/or acacia wood and lovingly packed into Play Kits (Baby Play Kit, Taby Play Kit, Toddler Play Kit and The Complete Play Kit).
