Montessori Family Finds on Gumtree

I've been searching for a second-hand overhead projector on Gumtree (AU) for months. I'm still hopeful that I will find one, but this searching often leads me to find other good things on Gumtree. Over the weekend I picked up this bike (below) for $50 including the child seat and bike lock (it needs a new chain), and the Montessori Dino Cards for $10. Where do you look for good Montessori second-hand finds, FB marketplace, Gumtree, FreeCycle?

Kylie's Finds Gumtree

The key to getting a bargain on Gumtree is finding items that you need and that are located close to you. Here are some other good Montessori home finds currently available!! 

Montessori books on Gumtree (1)

Montessori toddler books for $5 pick up Meadow Bank (NSW), the sellers can post at buyer's expense! 

Lovevery playmat play gym on Gumtree Australia

It is difficult to get Lovevery in Australia. This is the Lovevery Play Gym, $140 pick up Rosanna (Vic).  We had this play gym, and it's the number one play gym I recommend, it has lots of attachments from high contrast images to grasping ball.  

Gumtree Montessori sandpaper letters (1)

Sandpaper Letters, $40 pick up in Hazelbrook (NSW). These look like the sandpaper that we use (and love) from the US, which are expensive to ship. Even with a bit of wear and tear, this looks like a good deal. Uppercase and lower case.

Montessori toddler wardrobe on Gumtree Australia

Love this children's wardrobe, $150 pick up from Kogarah (NSW). With a bit of attention, this could be an amazing unique wardrobe for a young child. Has hanging space and drawers. 

Waldorf playstands Gumtree (1)

Two wooden Waldorf Play Stands, $90 pick up Kambah (ACT). We have used similar play stands for shelves, as shown here, but also for imaginative play like as a pretend shopfront or cafe. This price is good!!! 

Montessori toys materials on Gumtree

Toddler Arm Chair, $50 Horningsea Park (NSW). This would be lovely in a child's room or in a reading corner. 

Model Dinosaurs, $75 Randwick (NSW). Can you ever have too many dinosaurs? These are close to me and I'm still thinking about them... 

Colour Matching Pegs $35, Newcastle (NSW). I'd suggest from 3yrs but younger children may be interested in them too. 

Mobilo $30, Ermington (NSW). We love Mobilo, it's a fantastic construction toy to have at home, from around 3yrs+.  The same seller is also selling Wedgits

Montessori family finds on Gumtree Australia (1)

IVI Traffic Green Playmat/Rug $110, Rose Bay (NSW). For car and transport-related play. 

Children's Light and Sand Table $260, Cecil Hills (NSW). This is handmade and is interestingly multi-coloured. So different to what I've seen before. 

Wooden Play Kitchen Gumtree AU (1)

Vintage Wooden Kids Kitchen Play Set $120 at Doncaster East (Vic).  The unit on the left could work beautifully in a Montessori environment to store and display children's kitchen materials.

Montessori toddler furniture on Gumtree

Good quality children's square table, two chairs and a stool $180 at Gordon (NSW). 

Learning Tower Gumtree Australia

Gumtree is a good place for finding Learning Towers and various other kitchen helpers. This Learning Tower is $170 at Liverpool (NSW).
