This set includes 5 essential Montessori materials for babies from 6 to 12 months.
Natural Rubber Sensory Ball (Orange)
An excellent material for teething and fine motor development.
Unlike other commercially available sensory balls, ours is made with 100% natural rubber and made without holes — therefore preventing molds that usually develop from moisture that gets trapped inside from washing, water play or when a baby drools.
Its unique shape is alsor designed to encourage grasping and crawling. A slight drop or movement is just enough get a baby excited to "chase" after it, but not so much movement to lose the baby's interest or make it impossible to catch. From 6 months and up.
Works with either hand and allows for hand-to-hand transfer at 6 months.
The discs are unglued and are designed to come apart and fit together like a puzzle, allowing the child to practice fine motor skills.
As its name suggests, this material encourages an infant’s use of his/her whole palm for grasping. From 7 months and up.
Peg Doll in Cup
Typically introduced after progressing from the Palmar Peg, this Peg Doll in Cup invites a more precise but flexible fit through a 3-finger pincer grasp.
This is the most precise hand-working material to introduce to babies as it encourages an infant’s use of his/her thumb and index finger in order to place the block. From 12 months and up.
