Are thinking about getting a monthly subscription box for your toddler, let me help you out. I have put together this list of the best Montessori Inspired Subscription Boxes out there. If you’d like to read more about Montessori click the link to read my article What is Montessori & 5 Easy Ways to Begin.
I am a minimalist at heart so I was a little skeptical when I first heard about subscription boxes. I didn’t know why anyone would want a continuous flow of toys being sent to their house?! Buuuutttttt now that I have my daughter I totally understand!
If you fall behind on getting your child new materials, they are likely to become bored and distracted from their work. This is where a subscription comes in handy. It takes the guesswork out of trying to find proper materials for you. Instead of stressing to try and figure out what is next, you can rely on these subscription boxes for some quality age-appropriate Montessori materials every month.

I set out by surveying some Montessori mamas to find out what everyone’s favorite Montessori-inspired subscription boxes were. A Montessori toy is usually made of natural materials, such as wood. They are also usually simple in design, to allow growth for the child’s use of imagination and fine motor skills. As an example, think of wooden puzzles and blocks in colorful geometric shapes. I love Montessori toys because they are timeless in design and can even fit in amongst your home’s decor. If you aren’t sure where to buy or how to start with Montessori style toys and activities for babies or toddlers check out our post. There were a few that stood out from the start so, from one Montessori mama to the next, here is the list:
Coming in at #1 this small business has high praise amongst the Montessori community. Each month you receive a Toolbox of the Month. Each Toolbox will contain authentic Montessori materials that will lead to hours and hours of hands on activities for your child. Montessori By Mom provides materials of the highest quality that get the most value for your dollar. Our boxes are carefully designed around those principles. It is not only children in Montessori schools who can benefit from the Montessori education.
I’ve just purchased my first toolbox and I am anxiously awaiting its arrival! I will give you the full review once we have received it! Use the code: AFFTHTL to get $10 off of your new subscriptions.
Little Passports comes in 2nd for popularity and affordability. Coming in at the lowest price point, this subscription box company has a wide variety of cultural learnings. With the Early Explorers package for 3-5-year-olds, you will receive activity books, stickers, flashlight adventures, souvenirs, and trading cards. Exploring world themes such as landmarks, music, animals, food, art, natural wonders, oceans, space, and much more world discoveries. You will see how independent your kid becomes every day! Perfect for toddlers! Due to COVID, you must want to make sure the little one can still learn at home.
Although Monti Kids is 3rd on our list, don’t go counting it out just yet. Unlike the two companies above, Monti Kids sends out bigger materials such as an object permanence box. Each box is designed to meet your child’s developmental milestones. Monti Kids toys help provide the right amount of challenge backed by the Montessori Method.
The subscription includes materials for your child and access to their exclusive online videos and articles created by early education experts. There are 8 levels and each includes 6+ toys, demo videos, toy guides, and tips. Just click here and use code HOLLY60 to get $70 off your first order.
Here are the Montessori subscription boxes to suit a baby you’ll want to check out Lovevery! Their play products are designed by child development experts and distilled to their simplest, purest purpose: to be exactly what children need at each stage. The Play Kit subscription program delivers stage-based play products directly to your door every other month.
While not technically subscription boxes, I couldn’t go without mentioning this fantastic service. Green Pinata Toy Share is basically a digital toy library. You receive 3-4 toys for each shipment. You can keep all or just some of those toys as long as you like. You can even purchase them if your child won’t part with one. When you’ve decided to return your toys you will be sent a new box of toys to keep as long as needed. You can see the appeal this service has for a minimalist mama like me. 🙂
