CDT15.jpg DT15 Matreshka Nesting Doll, 6 Doll Set
This lovely set of nesting dolls is one of the most favorite toys all over the world. There are 6 dolls, graduated in size, each one nesting the next. They provide an introduction to graduated size, eye-hand control as the child, as young as two years of age, learns to twist off the top to open the doll, and to close it after placing the correct doll inside. To introduce these we suggest placing two dolls in a basket, and gradually adding more until the child can sort and manipulate all six dolls at one setting. Made in Russia.

CDP33J.jpg DP33J Shells with Matching Cards
The shells in this unique collection were selected with the study of zoology at the 6-12 level in mind. The ink drawings were made by Susan, the author of our Montessori books, because the child with black ink drawings a child will be inspired to examine each shell carefully rather than to match shell and picture by color. This is essential since many of the shells come in a variety of colors. There are 22 shells with 22 matching pictures printed on 4.25" x 5.5" white cardstock.
