Ostheimer Dog - St. Bernhard Puppy Head High
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.

Very cute addition
I wish I had discovered Ostheimer years ago! My journey has evolved towards natural wooden toys as my son grew and I was looking for beautiful animals for his base building and love of nature. I feel like we missed the window for great small world play but he still loves dogs so chose this little guy to accompany another Ostheimer dog for his 7th birthday as a special keepsake. This little guy is definitely a cute puppy size. The paintwork is softly detailed and has a natural beauty to it that mass produced products can’t replicate. Very happy with this Ostheimer addition.
