Why Are so Many HABA Toys Montessori Toys?

Our primary goal at HABA is to encourage children's innate sense of wonder and love for learning, so all of our kids toys are designed with that in mind. Many of our toys are made from wood, promote open-ended play, are fired by the imagination and not batteries, and encourage STEM learning.

We also have several lines of games, tools, and toys that promote independent play and learning. The most important quality for a Montessori toy and for all of our toys at HABA is that toys should spark curiosity while allowing for learning and growth.

2.Why are Montessori Toys Important for Children's Development??

Montessori toys encourage children to work with a simple challenge repeatedly, allowing strong connections to emerge in their brain allowing learning to happen. As they master simple repetitive tasks, their dexterity improves, their spatial connections are enhanced, and then they can move onto more complex tasks. Montessori toys also encourage exploration and these toys allow them to test and experiment and make sense of the world.

3. What Should I Look for in Quality Montessori Toys?

Montessori toys are often made from sensory-rich natural materials and do not use batteries or have a lot of distracting lights or noises. The toy needs to be manipulated by the child so that they learn from the action created and then can make their own meaningful connections between cause and effect.
