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.”
Slight differences in colour and slight deviations in the structure of the grain contribute to the special charm and uniqueness of Ostheimer figures.
