Re: Montessori/Waldorf families, have a couple of questions.

~Felt food
~Child-size real-life stuff, like aprons, tools, utensils
~I don't know if you were looking for spam, but I sell these (http://www.etsy.com/listing/10704465...dler-color-and). I made the original one for my toddler, and he loves it.

A friend of mine who is a Montessori teacher suggested puzzles with little knobs, like on this one (http://www.amazon.com/Melissa-Doug-1...ds=knob+puzzle). According to her, the fine pincer grasp required to grasp the tiny knobs is great training for learning to hold a pencil later on.

Does anyone have recommendations for toys appropriate for a child UNDER one. My daughter will be six months at Christmas time but I can't decide which toys would be a favorite for her. She loves noise and sticking toys in her mouth of course. I would like one or two items she can grow into.
Wooden alphabet blocks are AWESOME. WE got some for DS1 when he was around 7 months old, and at 27 months, he still gets so much use out of them. At first he just chewed on them, then knocked down towers I built, then made his own towers, then started identifying the numbers and letters... the uses go on and on.
