Toys/Materials 12-18 months old


Montessori inspired toy shelf for my one year old.

  1. Wooden shapes puzzle
  2. Sensory board puzzle
  3. Imbucare box with knitted ball
  4. Farm animals
  5. Imbucare coin box

Even though my youngest can easily do the imbucare boxes and shapes puzzles they are current favourites so are kept on his shelf for now. There are some other items in the shared play space off the lounge room such as wooden blocks, books, cars and trucks.

  • Matching colour ball to base
  • Spinning top
  • In wooden bowl, colour teaching transparent discs


  • Shape puzzle
  • Colour Palette paddles
  • Hammer and peg toy (no hammer used). Both kids use it for finger strength by pushing down the pegs with fingers and then flip it over to the other side to do it again and again.
  • Peg toy
  • Farm animals



Melissa and Doug Barn. Both of my children play with this. My three year old sometimes play with this and her doll house together.

    1. Hi Gosia,
      I purchased ours 5 years ago on ebay for approx $10 AUD and it was second hand. I noticed the one sold on ebay now under ‘TRI AND wooden build up peg board’ is really expensive. I couldn’t see any on Amazon. I would suggest a google search for ‘wooden peg boards for kids/toddlers. have one but is currently out of stock. There also seems to be one on for about $24.95 AUD. Good luck. I would have given you ours but we have already passed ours onto a cousin.
