Montessori favourites at Ikea – 2020

ikea Montessori list 2020

Ikea is one of my favourite shops. If you were coming to my house, you would say that we live in an Ikea show-room.

In another blog post, I gave you a video tour of Ikea to show you what is Montessori friendly.

Today's blog post features what is new in Ikea and would be perfect for a Montessori home.

1. Bullig Basket - this one is half the size of a Kallax insert. It's perfect to store loose parts, such as block set, train set and so on. 

2. Bullig basket narrow - this one fits a Billy bookcase so again perfect if it's the kind of shelves you are using.

3. Lankmoj is a new series of products. There are boxes with lids, organiser for desk, mini-chest of drawers and more.

4. Jamngod tray. I think they have a new design every year. When you like the design, make sure you buy enough trays to have a beautifully coordinated shelf!

5. Silverpoppel apron: A very cute flamingo design

6. Medarbetare strainer: Perfect as a small sieve for toddlers.

7 Silverpoppel toddler apron

8. Van Gogh Starry Night

9. Van Gogh Sunflowers

10. Monet Water lillies

11. Drawing board: This drawing case is a small artist's best travel companion. Lots of pockets for pens, crayons, paper and scissors – and a drawing board on the back

12. Pillemark rug: this rainbow design is just too cute!

13. Palhult travel map: imagine all the Montessori activities you could do with a drawing map!

14. Vesken slim trolley: it would be perfect as an art trolley for a small space. Or it could be used in a small kitchen for snacks and kitchen tools.

15. Molger bench: it can be used as a shelf

16. Kalsfint - water dispenser 3L
