Covered wagon perfect for a pair of Ostheimer horses to pull.
Combine with the harness (sold seperately) which allows you to attach a pair of horses to the wagon. Built to withstand years of serious play.
Ostheimer consciously decided to give their wooden vehicles simple fundamental forms and functions. This way children will use their imagination and their own initiative to bring the play scenes alive. A first idea of basic steering skills can be playfully experienced.
Slight differences in colour and slight deviations in the structure of the grain contribute to the special charm and uniqueness of Ostheimer.

Margarete Ostheimer, a Waldorf (Steiner) teacher, began a collection of toys which enliven the imagination. In her own words: “It is the fantasy of our children alone that breathes life into the seemingly stiff wooden figures, the form and colour of which purposely have been reduced to an essential minimum. It is apparent how little coaching our children need to dive into their worlds.”
