Re: Montessori/Waldorf families, have a couple of questions.
My two are 6 and 3 1/2 and the big hits around here are dress-ups (we have a huge variety of costumes and hats, and props), wooden blocks, large cardboard "brick" blocks, Playmobils, Polly Pockets (I know those last two are plastic but they do allow for a lot of creative and open-ended play), baby dolls and stuffed animals and clothes/accessories, and Woodkins. Woodkins are a newer thing we've had in just the last few months, and both my kids go crazy for them.
