I’m Vaishali of @ammatoday and Amma of V and V2. Early childhood experiences form a huge impact on the rest of our lives, and I enjoy working with books and toys for children.
I’ve curated this collection with a lot of thought, based on my own experience and perspective as an educator, montessorian and parent.

Age appropriate toys that can be used in many ways, that are skill based, and allow the child to engage with it actively. Most of these toys are loved by V and I cannot wait for V2 to play with them.
Toys and educational materials that I use with V, that focus on particular skills like math or language, and can be manipulated actively by the child.
Right from the earliest Montessori puzzle to the jigsaw puzzles, this list includes some favourite cognitive challenging toys.
Experiential activity kits that we enjoy doing together as a family, and that are not just busy work, but add value or learning to our lives.
I’ve picked sturdy board or fabric books that don’t overstimulate the baby. Some of these we have overused yet, I have saved for my grandkids.
Books I’ve enjoyed reading to V, books that add value to our bookshelf and books that we learn something new from with every reading.
All the furniture and furnishings that empower V and V2 to be independent and make their environment functional and joyous.
Just some miscellaneous stuff we use and recommend that make our life easier and more joyous.
We love books that highlight our cultural art, music, festivals, etc. These are some of the books on Indian culture that I’ve enjoyed reading to my girls.
The toys that grow with our children and can be used in multiple ways, the ones that have a permanent place in our shelf and are value for money.
Some unique games that we enjoy playing as a family, and that are fun as well as educative. They had a permanent place in our diaper bag during easy travel days.
Your favourite art-supplies at home. These art supplies provide sensory inputs and give hours of entertainment.
