    Default Montessori style toys

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knew where you could get Montessori style toys for a decent price? I'm looking for toys aimed at the toddler age, so things like big wooden puzzles, those toys that have three sticks on a base that hold different colored rings, and things like that.

    I've found some on ebay, but even on there they seem rather expensive. I have a feeling that these sorts of educational toys might just be expensive from everywhere...

    You can get the wooden toys and etc from Bright Bugs. It is pretty expensive though.

    Have a look on the Ikea website, they have a few wooden toys that might be suitable and not too expensive

    I second Melissa and Doug. But, yeah, you can expect to pay a fair bit for some of these things.

    A question for those of you that recommended Melissa and Doug... Did you buy them directly from their website? I found some stuff that I really liked, but when I went to pay for them it wouldn't let me select anywhere outside the USA for shipping...
