For over 30 years Michael Olaf has provided the best quality and selection of toys, books, and other educational materials for children from birth to 7+ years. The selections are made by qualified Montessori teachers. Michael Olaf ships all over the world and is well-known for excellent service. In order to focus on Birth to Three (the Michael Olaf international specialty) at the end of 2013 we stopped carrying materials for 6-12. Soon we will stop carrying most 3-6 materials as well. ANYTHING MARKED 'ON SALE' IN THE 3-6 AREA, NOW AND IN THE COMING WEEKS, WILL BE DISCONTINUED WHEN CURRENT STOCK IS GONE.

Observing children and watching them develop and grow is one of the chief pleasures in life. A recent NYTimes article (March 3, 2009) tells us "In a Helpless Baby, the Roots of Our Social Glue" the author tells us that "Anthropologists have made the startling discovery that . . . among traditional cultures without television or Internet access, a baby is the best show in town." Learning to sit back and observe each child as they grow and develop does more than anything to help us understand, enjoy, and help our children.
