Michael Olaf is like a mental health food store for children. Other companies, just like large grocery stores, may carry some of the same products but theirs are buried amongst the many things that are not good for children, and one needs a Montessori diploma to make the right choices. Thank you for your excellent items for children!

Michael Olaf is absolutely priceless. I have ordered from this company since I became a mother. The toys are are wonderful. The great thing is you may be able to  find some things you definitely will not see in stores. These products will encourage your children to get interested in science, history, music, art, and they are much more beautiful than just some plastic stuff that will  break. —A Parent
