A closer look into the making of Monti Kids materials.

Design

Design

Our design team blends art and science to make authentic Montessori toys that activate your child’s most powerful learning zone.


With guidance from early child development experts who are also AMI-certified Montessori educators, we have developed strict, proprietary standards that govern all aspects of our toy design down to the smallest detail. As a result, many of our toys are patent-pending, blending mathematical precision with a simple, timeless look and feel.

 

Safety

All of our toys meet or exceed the US and European safety standards for 0-3. However, at Monti Kids, we are obsessed with safety and go above and beyond industry standards in our design and manufacturing.

check mark Redundant safety protection in design: We make sure that all products have not one but two safety features that must fail before a safety hazard can appear.
check mark Rigorous quality inspecting: We sample and test a percentage of our materials that’s well above the required industry standards, effectively cutting the level of allowable defects in half. We physically inspect 100% of all toys made specifically for mouthing babies.
check mark All of our materials are chosen for their safety as well as their function and beauty: We never use low-quality softwoods. Our wooden products are constructed from high-quality beech and birch hardwoods. We always use proprietary, child-safe, non-toxic stains and finishes versus using paint that can easily chip. All of our silicone and stainless steel products are food grade.

Sustainability is a Monti Kids value. Safety is a Monti Kids obsession.

We believe in making toys that last for generations. All of our materials are chosen for their safety as well as their function and beauty.
