Waldorf Toys


Waldorf schools, which originated in the 1920’s, have always provided children with toys made of natural materials, such as wood, silk, wool, and cotton.  One important hallmark of a “Waldorf toy” is that it be nourishing to a young child’s senses.  Waldorf toys are also beautiful to behold, because sight is as important as touch.

Toys that are made from natural materials, with rich, natural colors, and that are lovingly handcrafted are inviting, and contribute to a child’s “sense of life.” Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education, suggested that children’s playthings should be largely unformed in order to stimulate a child’s imagination. Consequently, Waldorf toys are often simple, without a lot of detail, and encourage open-ended play.
