Natural Rubber Baby Toys

I've been thinking more lately about all the products we use in our home. And how we can make them more natural. I sort of stumbled upon rubber as an option when I bought a Calmies ball when Gus was a baby. If you remember, he had some physical delays and needed easy toys to grasp. A friend suggested this ball, and Gus loved it. This led me to explore some other rubber options for him. So far, rubber has been one of his favorite materials to chew on.

  1. Calmies Ball -- one of Gus' favorites, even as an older baby
  2. Fawn Teether
  3. Strawberry Teether
  4. Star Ball
  5. Rubbabu Balls -- these come in lots of varieties 
  6. Fish Teether -- We also have this one and it's great for teething
  7. Star Teether
  8. Goat 
  9. Pear Teether
  10. Rainbow Sensory Ball
  11. Pacifier -- another favorite for Augustus 
  12. Owl Teether
And, I love that! It's natural so I don't have to worry about chemicals leeching from the toys. They are also beautiful, a nice weight, easy to care for, and sturdy. Rubber has been sort of a no-brainer, that I hadn't really considered with my other children. 


Another reason to love rubber is that it is sustainable. The process can be made safe for the Hevea trees that it is made from. Rubber will also naturally break down over time, unlike plastics, so these baby toys won't be around for thousands of years in a landfill.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
