Montessori method

This geometric shaped wooden puzzle is one of the toys that can be used within the framework of Montessori pedagogy. It will delight babies from 12 months. Please note that it is to be used under the supervision of an adult.

The Montessori method was created by Maria Montessori, an Italian doctor and educator in 1907. Today it is used in more than 22,000 establishments around the world. The particularity of the Montessori method is to put forward the personal development of the child and to encourage his autonomy through educational toys based on the senses and perception.

Montessori learning: Montessori geometry

This educational puzzle will develop your child's cognition by mobilizing learning the basics of geometry .

This baby puzzle derived from the Montessori method will develop your baby's logic, thinking and patience as the objective is to put all the differently shaped pieces back in their places on the round base.

The adult can use the vocabulary of the corresponding shape while the child has fun with it (round, triangle, square, ...). The 3 memories are then called upon: visual, auditory and kinesthetic to discover the basic shapes of geometry.

Motor skills & Perception in space

This playful puzzle will develop your baby's motor skills as he will have to make the connection between the movement of his hands and the coordination of his eyes, which will develop his abilities.

Thanks to this Montessori puzzle, the child has the possibility of indirectly working his fine motor skills (tracing the outline of the shape). In addition, by trying to reconstruct the puzzles in their wooden base, the child increases his spatial perception.

- From 12 months: Presentation of simple shapes (round, square, triangle).
- From 2 years to 2 and a half years: Beginning of the presentation of other shapes.
- From 2 and a half to 3 years: Use the 3-step lesson:
1. Name the names of the shapes: The adult learner names each shape.
2. Show the shapes: “Do you can show the circle? "
3. Identify the shapes: The adult shows the shapes and the child names them.

Creativity and Imagination

For slightly older children who can hold the pencil, it is possible to suggest to the child to trace the outline of the shape or to trace the shape using the colored embedding elements as a stencil. As for the little ones, we can suggest that they take the colored piece and place it in flour, magic sand or plasticine in order to visually observe what the imprint represents.

Collaboration & Socialization

These educational toys are favorable to collaboration and therefore to socialization because they can be played alone but also accompanied by another child or an adult.



This toy is made of natural wood painted with non-toxic water-based paint, so safe for your baby.
