making play your way

Modular Handmade Wooden Castle Playset from Manzanita Kids on Etsy - Montessori Waldorf

Kids play best – or, they play with the best results from our point of view – when the things they’re playing with are as open-ended as possible. Don’t spoon feed them the story, the images, or the specifics of the toy or game they’re working with, instead we need to give them a chance to come up with their own ideas.

It’s a very Montessori concept, and it’s one that Manzanita Kids is showcasing beautifully in these modular building toys. Each natural wood structure is just itching for customization. Literally, you can put the walls together any which way. But also, which people will play together today? The teddy bear and the action hero? Or the baby doll and My Little Pony? I just love that all of those options are a-ok. And I can already see Birdie trying to make all the furniture out of paper and markers!

Choose between a castle, a dollhouse, a treehouse, or a deluxe dollhouse set. Each one is handmade, all natural, and ready for years of creative play!
