Ostheimer Shepherd Boy
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.
Materials: Handcrafted in Germany from sustainable European Maple wood and hand-painted with multiple applications plant-based water colours that are non-toxic and child-safe. Finally they are finished with a walnut oil to protect and intensify the colours. Simply one of the world's best quality wooden toy makers.
All Ostheimer toys meet or exceed strict EU safety testing standards.
