Montessori Inspired Toys 13 to 16 Months

It's been a while since I've shared some of Nora's favorite toys. She's nearly 16-months-old now {how did that happen?!!} and loves a mixture of fine and gross motor work.

She's finally returning to her shelves after a long absence where she just wanted to climb and haul. While I think the sensitive period for gross motor still drives a lot of her daily activities, it has been nice to see her take out different work. 




Pop Up Toy an absolute favorite (even Henry loves this one);  Schleich Animals still a must have! 


Lately, she's even started to make the connection to take work to a table or work mat. It's been amazing to watch. I've even seen her return work to the shelf {but not to the exact right spot} from time to time.


Ball Pounder excellent way to get some gross motor and maximum effort play in; Wooden Peg Game this can be used in so many ways, again even a favorite for Henry

At this age, I try to choose materials that are open ended, but also appeal to Nora's interests. Nora loves babies, animals, vehicles and anything that looks like it might be Henry's. She also loves anything that incorporates movement, pounding or very tiny objects.

  1. Thank you! Evie is interested in all the same things at 15 months, but has been spending more time on perfecting her walking than anything else. We have very similar things on our shelves at the moment and I'm trying to plan for Christmas. I would love to hear your ideas for presents!
