Kia Ora, welcome to my Secret Garden!

All my toys, figures and other designs are created in harmony with the Steiner/Waldorf philosophy towards child development.
Natural materials stimulate the senses and simple, organic shapes and forms allow for creative, imaginative play.

Not all my listings are meant to be used as a toy, however, all can be made more child-friendly with a bit of extra felting for durability. Just let me know if your intentions are to give your purchase to a child and I will alter the item if needed.

I use 100% wool for all my needle-felt art. The wool is home-grown, carded and dyed right here in beautiful New Zealand.

If you would like a different skin or hair colour for any of the figures, feel free to just ask! I'm happy to make any item to your exact specifications.

Thank you for stopping by NZsecretgarden.
