Switching from Plastic to Wood- It's Worth It!

Ostheimer play world- my son and daughter- now 13 and 12- still love
and play with their Ostheimer toys.  They set up a wonderland of worlds-and spend hours playing by themselves and with eachother.  The Ostheimer castle, I bought at Nova Natural Toys and it was my best investment.  They now have the Native American set, the medieval set, the fairytale set and the farm set.  We spend a whole day twice a year washing them down and resealing them with beeswax.  I look forward to wrapping these pieces up for them and presenting them to their children one day!

  1. What a lovely glimpse into your home :D We started our *woodland* collection (as the girls termed it) last year and you are SO right - they play every day with them. We're having a garage sale in May to purchase more Ostheimers as we continue to swap out plastic for wood...

    Thinking of you guys...

  2. Oh thank you Jen- I am having, sadly a Waldorf garage sale soon- I can't take it all with me! I am getting rid of lots of wood puzzles and marble runs- but nothing will make me part with the Ostheimer !! : )
