Montessori - Waldorf Toys

We carry a line of unique, handmade Waldorf / Montessori-inspired toys designed for open-ended play and education. All of these wooden toys are individually handmade right here in Washington State! Educational toys such as these are the building blocks of a Waldorf or Montessori school system, and we've found that many parents really value having handcrafted wooden toys instead of mass produced, imported items. Great for matching, fine motor skills, imaginative play, homeschooling, or as heirloom gifts!
