How we Montessori top selling  toddler toys materials 2021

Today I'm sharing the top materials ordered by HWM readers through Amazon (US) in the year 2021. This post includes a ton of product links, if that isn't your thing please skip this post. I hope you find this useful and that you get some great ideas for your children for now or for the future! 

Let's start by looking at toddler toys and materials. The Radio Flyer Classic Walker Wagon is popular year after year (mainly due to this article). My children adored the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Pound and Roll Wooden Tower and the Galt Pop Up Toy so it's great to see them at the top of this list. Our Green Toys Submarine is also much loved, it's currently in our bathroom and is used every single night!

A big shout out to Montessori abc's, The Little Montessori Me Picture Book and Babies Build Toddlers which are all self-published. Self-published books are important to the Montessori community, they are usually more expensive to publish (are self-funded & often more expensive to buy), they lack promotion other books receive from publishers so please support them when you can!
