The First Year of Life
Untitled Document

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.

THE FIRST YEAR: Crawling, Pulling up, and Standing

A soft ball, or rolling rattle, that moves slowly across the floor gives the child just the right about in incentive to move forward to reach it, thus practicing that all important stage-crawling. Furniture in the home that the child can explore at any time, and certain other toys provide ways for the child to pull up whenever he feels the urge, and to practice walking on his own.
