Ostheimer wooden toys have been loved by children for over 60 years. Ostheimer's wonderfully expressive wooden toys and figures are produced from hardwoods of the finest quality, such as maple, elm and ash.
Every Ostheimer figure is sanded, painted with non-toxic stain, and varnished by hand, a process which ensures that each one is absolutely unique.
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.

I’m the proud owner of about 25 Ostheimer animals. My little Kindy cherubs love to play with them. They are such an open ended toy... Last week we used them to discuss syllables, the animals were hiding in a calico bag, the children took turns choosing an animal and as a class they listening for how many syllables in each of the animals names. The excitement on their face was priceless. The Creative Toy Shop is the best one stop shop for any teacher, parent, grandparent or anyone looking for gifts for children. I don’t shop anywhere else! Thank you to the team from the Creative Toy Shop.
