My toys are Waldorf inspired, non-toxic, kid tested, and mama approved! I work in the old-world tradition and inspiration of toymaking that has existed for hundreds of years. I am proud to bring this tradition to you. In the Waldorf tradition I leave features style in it's simplest form. This allows the child to project their emotions onto their play object.

I use only natural materials that are by nature lead free: wood, wool, and cotton. I use AP certified watercolors in the Waldorf tradition to stain the wood and let the natural grain show and then seal with all natural food safe beeswax polish with no extra scents or essences- extra gentle and safe. The beeswax polish is local organic Missouri beeswax mixed with organic JoJoba Oil. My standard wood of choice is poplar.
