My obsession with wooden toys start when I had Senai 10 years ago and discovered Melissa Doug toys at winners. Senai was a fast learner and figured out her puzzles in no time. When I had Mekhi and Aneeka I quickly realized they were fast and eager learners just like their bigger sister. Like clock work I headed over to winners and grad as many Melissa Doug wooden learning toys for playtime learning. I believe kids should be fun but are help with learning. Why I like Melissa Dougs wooden toys is the fact that some are Montessori approved and easily accessible at winners.
Ever since Mekhi Started a Montessori Pre k Ive been in love with their approach and the way they teach. One of the things I love the most is their toys and learning approach. Montessori toys encourages stimulation, experimentation, and the development of fine motor skills through toys.
