Since Mia approached 10 months I added some new materials on our Montessori shelve. She is still using Montessori Materials at 8 Months. On her shelf she has:
Bright coloured feathers.
Peg and Egg from pinkhouse.
Language Basket with objects of cow, car, ball and book with matching cards.
She also has a basket of books, 5 books, each week I rotate them for new ones. If you didn’t notice before I LOVE children’s picture books and we already have so many so I keep them away at the moment offering one or two at the time.
I also added few new Montessori inspired toys. I will show you in separate post. I rotate the toys gently. I keep her favourites out and those that are used less I rotate every week. However there is never more than 10 toys available to her (considering her age).
As an important note I’m showing Mia to put her toys away, back in the same place they came from when she has finished with them. It will be a while until she is able to put away her toys herself but I am sure she already knows where they go.
And, yes soft toys. She has few and there are in her cot, so far she hasn’t shown any attachment to particular soft toy.
Does this seem like a lot of toys to you? I would love to hear your opinions.

This is such a great idea! I totally get overwhelmed by all of the books and toys. We are moving in a few weeks and when we get to our new home I totally want to get a similar system in place!
These look like great toys – I love the idea of a language basket. I just went thru and put a ton of Ella’s toys in storage because she has so many she never knows what to play with. Less is definitely more.
I love the idea of rotating toys! Hate clutter.
I’m same, thank you Miri!
You always give me food for thought to share with my friends with littles. Such fun ways to learn through play.
Haha thank you Stephanie!
It does not seem like alot of toys to me as long as she plays with them.
I hope so 🙂 thank you Sophie!
