Ostheimer Bell Tower
The Ostheimer bell tower is designed in deliberately simple, pared back forms that allow children to imagine and create their own magical worlds.
This beautiful bell tower might form part of a castle, a church or be a bell to ring the children (or animals) for their lessons. There are so many ways to play with this beautiful toy that only expand as your collection grows.
Whether it be one beautiful wooden castle piece or a collection of castle pieces from Ostheimer it will provide children with versatile play pieces that will be inspiring and long lasting. All Ostheimer castle parts are compatible to enable you to build a magical world, as fast or slow as you like. Add Ostheimer knights, horses and a royal family, or play with peg people to create a new element of adventure.
As with all Ostheimer wooden toys, each piece is hand-crafted and finished in walnut oil for a hard-wearing, tactile feel.

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.”
