Montessori Materials - Wooden Coin Box

This beautifully crafted wooden Montessori toy coin box works just like a piggy bank. Areas of educational development include hand/eye coordination, mid-line crossing, shape recognition and object permanence, which are all crucial areas of early learning.

As well as being fun for your child, this educational activity provides a purposeful, repetitive independent activity to help build self-confidence, self-esteem and increase concentration.

And, perhaps, it may even give your little one their first thirst for economics!

How to present the toy using the Montessori method:
  1. Place the coin box on the floor in front of your baby and pick up one of the coins using your thumb and pointer finger. It’s useful to name the object and be descriptive, for example ‘round, blue, coin’
  2. Engage interest with your child using a single word statement such as ‘look’ or ‘watch’
  3. Stabilise the box with one hand and using your other hand hold the coin slightly above the hole
  4. Rotate the coin slowly left and right stopping when it matches the hole horizontally to demonstrate the precise position needed
  5. Slowly lower the coin through hole and release
  6. Slowly open the drawer using your thumb and pointer finger
  7. Peer in and then retrieve the coin using your thumb and pointer finger, and place the coin beside the box
  8. Slowly close the drawer and offer your child a turn

A favourite! September 9, 2013
Reviewer: Jess Denham from Marrickville, NSW Australia  
This is our fourth Montessori material product from here and is by far my sons favourite! He loves putting the coins in and then being able to open the drawer and take them out himself rather than needing help with other coin drop styled toys. We even take the drawer out and put it standing upright so he can put the coins in sideways for even more of a challenge! The drawer opens easily and is is a great product!

Great product June 23, 2013
Reviewer: Lisa Mc from QLD Australia  
My 14 month old and 3 year old love this toy. It is well made and durable. I love watching the joy on my little ones face when he successfully 'posts' a coin. Thanks classic baby for fast delivery and such an original toy that will stand the test of time.

Coin box September 29, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Challenged and entertained my 18 month old who already attends montessori. Great way to continue what he learns in class at home. Fast delivery made it easier for us to enjoy the toy much sooner than anticipated. Will buy from Classic baby again!
