Ostheimer - Hippopotamus Baby
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 that ensures that each one is absolutely unique.
Margarete Ostheimer, a Waldorf (Steiner) teacher, began a collection of toys that 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.
