Giveaway: Your Toddler Will Love This!

Thursday, February 6th, 2014 9:24 am | By Stephanie Woo

This giveaway has expired. But you can get 25% discount through this link. Enter “MONTESSORI25” at check out!

Marie-Claire made something I wish I had known about two years ago. These awesome card decks are beautifully-designed (which appeals to the Montessorian in me) and non-toxic. The fact that they have educational information, like numbers, letters and shapes is just the cherry on top! If you have a young toddler, they will love this. Guaranteed. And if you have older children, the So Awesome website has ideas on other things you can do. For example, I love the matching game below (see picture). 


For us, the wallet was a particularly HUGE HIT. Every time we go to the grocery store, Mackenzie always remembers to bring her wallet. The first time she brought it with her, while I was checking out, she had taken out her card as she sat in the cart, waiting and ready to swipe! That’s how much children want to do what adults do. 

Lucky for us, Marie-Claire is doing a giveway for Montessori On the Double readers! Leave a comment below or send me an email stephanie@montessorionthedouble.com and if you are the lucky winner, she will send you an alphabet deck and the much-coveted wallet! Check out the rest of her website here! Winner will be announced on Feb 14th.

  23. Current favorite for the 14 month old: Old Maid cards. Putting them in a wallet would be bliss for him I think.

  24. These would be huge hits with my 16 month old twins! Beautiful cards!

  25. My daughter always wants to pay! I gave her some old gift cards and she always wants to use these to pay. She says she wants to swipe them in the little box at the cashier. When I use mine instead, she tells me “But actually I wanted to pay.”

    Sometimes I wish we could be even more real!

    Great give-away and thanks so much for your inspirational and helpful site!
    I have learned so much from reading your blogs!

    Cheers Nadine

  40. My husband and I were just talking about needing to get our 16 mth old son a wallet of his own and to fill it with beautiful educational cards. Tonight at the grocery store, he was again shouting and kicking for my wallet as I pulled it out for the cashier. Quite the challenge to pay and distract my son (failed as he is so focused) from my wallet over toddler angry cries and him pulling out my cards and notes. Hence this card and wallet would be oh so perfect for us and we can avoid toddler tantrums when I need to pull my wallet out.

    P.S Fingers and toes very very crossed, both my son’s and MINE 🙂
