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.”
Ostheimer wooden toys have been loved by children for over 70 years. Each Ostheimer wooden figure is made from local sustainable hardwood, painted with safe transparent paint and finished in organic oil to ensure a connection with nature and respect for the environment.
