Montessori books and supplies

Not all of the companies listed below are specifically Montessori, but they do sell toys, educational items and furniture which can be found in a Montessori home or school. Gonzagarredi and Nienhuis are the only two AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) approved manufacturers of Montessori equipment in Europe and the quality of their products is simply superb. This is not to say that equipment made by other companies is inferior (however, in a lot of cases the prices are much lower). A word of warning however: I have purchased products from the 'cheaper' Montessori manufacturers and let me just say that there's a reason why they're so cheap... poor quality that couldn't withstand one day of light use by a toddler whereas the Gonzagarredi items in our home have withstood lots of toddler and adult usage and are still in excellent shape.

I have also included links to online stores where you can purchase fine quality baby wooden toys. I am a big fan of brands like Haba and Selecta. The products meet the strictest European safety standards, and are quite beautiful.
