Toy Sheep

sheepThe preferred playthings among Waldorf schools possess the same qualities as tasteful home decoration: simple design, natural materials, and careful craftsmanship. These miniature creatures are born of Ostheimer Wooden Toys, the beloved German company established in 1939 as an educational resource. But one doesn’t need a tot in tow to enjoy their charms. Each is painstakingly coated with subtly colored, eco-friendly stain before getting a buffing of walnut oil for a satiny luster. Cue the “awwws.”

 Larger pieces are $13 to $25 each, available at Amazon and Ostheimer Toys.
