She’s done it again! Joanna Gaines has created a Hearth & Hand collection for Target that has given us everything we didn’t quite know we needed in the aesthetic we absolutely crave. In her latest line, the genius interior designer from HGTV’s Fixer Upper and co-founder of Magnolia has created a swoon-worthy lineup of Montessori toys.

Wooden toys like these, which feature light and neutral colors, are all the rage right now. The beautiful, simple designs fit so seamlessly into the chic aesthetic parents are already going for in their homes, and we could all do with a little less plastic.

Plus, we love a Montessori toy. Wondering what the heck that means? It’s a toy that leans into the Montessori model of learning which encourages curiosity and sensory-based learning. A Montessori toy is meant to engage a kid, encouraging them to experiment with the pieces and hone their gross and fine motor skills. Ideally, they should be able to play with the toy independently so they can really tap into their own creativity and imagination. Basically, it’s any interactive, screen-free toy they can build and play with on their own.

As per usual, Gaines hit the nail on the head with this line (quite literally with this tool bench) and we’re adding it all — especially our favorites below! — to our cart.

Rainbow Wooden Block Stacker

We are so obsessed with these rainbow blocks that trade in the bright ROY G BIV for muted tones. Kids can build the rainbow vertically, flat on a table, let the pieces teeter totter on their curves, or (as intended) come up with their own way to play.

Weather Station

Kids can track the weather IRL or in their imaginary world with this 15-piece weather station that has velcro pieces, dials, and scales to enhance their motor skills. And not only is it a Montessori win, but it’s also a STEM one too!
