Monti Kids Travel Diary: Babies & Bumps at the 2017 New York Baby Show

Kristien from our marketing team and I introduced Monti Kids at the largest show for new and expectant parents in the country. We attended the 2017 New York Baby Show along with thousands of families and over 200 global brands and services. We created a play space in our booth (that attracted a lot of children!) with a sample of our Montessori toys and demo videos from different levels in the Monti Kids program.

During the show, we hosted a class called Montessori at home for infants and toddlers. I spoke with families about why and how to incorporate Montessori techniques with their children. We explored how a Montessori home environment promotes learning and helps children to develop their concentration, perseverance, and independence through play. Meanwhile, Xinting, a teacher at the Mandarin immersion Polis World School Manhattan, guided children through educational play using Monti Kids Montessori materials.   


The best part was watching all the children who walked by get excited by our toys. Picture babies in their strollers turning their heads and toddlers pulling their parent’s hand in our direction saying, “I want to go there!” We had children from newborns to six year olds stop by to play. Monti Kids is loved by all ages!
