My first Montessori purchase: An A Plus Montessori review

A few weeks ago I ordered sound boxes and a scale from A Plus Montessori. I ordered on a Friday and got an email from the company on Tuesday saying they did not have the scales in stock :( I was quite disappointed since that was what I wanted most, but that stuff happens, right? I had the option of switching to another product of similar price or just going through with my order without the scale. I decided to just get the sound boxes and asked when the scales would be back in stock. I got a reply the next day with the tracking number for the sound boxes and a note saying the scales would be in stock within two months.

The following Tuesday the sound boxes were on my doorstep! They were packaged well and in great shape. They seem to be of high quality, as well, considering the low price point of A Plus Montessori's products. All in all, I am quite thrilled with my experience. I would have liked a quicker email that one of my products was out of stock, but I thought the customer service was otherwise excellent.

And look how cute the sound boxes are on our activity shelves!


  1. I am so inspired by your Montesorri set-up at home. I am a stay-at-home mom with a 2 1/2 year old. I was looking to get some materials together and start a group with some moms. Do you know of anyone doing this? think it could work?

  2. Thanks for comment! I don't know of anyone doing anything like you describe, but I think it's a great idea!! I definitely think it could work if you are dedicated and willing to put in the legwork to get it off the ground. If you do, you know you must blog about the experience and send me a link!

  3. Sorry for the double post...I didn't think my post worked earlier.

  4. Hello Real life montessori mom. I was considering purchasing from aplus montessori but yours is he only review i found. Have u purchased anything else from them or have u heard from anyone else if they have?
    thank you

  5. Anon, I have not made any other purchases and I can't think of any other reviews off the top of my head. I think they are considered a discount store, so it might be possible that some items could be low quality, but the sound boxes I received are great! Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
