This doll is wonderful, and my daughter loves her so much. Sue was great to work with. She responded quickly to messages, and made sure I was getting exactly what I wanted. You can tell she loves her beautiful creations.
HOW DID I GET INTO MAKING WALDORF INSPIRED DOLLS AND TOYS?
I'm originally from Germany where I met and fell in love with my husband.
I followed him across the big pond over 21 years ago and have since lived in different parts of Canada and the US. We have 3, now pretty much grown up , boys that I'm very proud of.
I don't think I can remember a time when I wasn't creative, but my introduction to Waldorf dolls came when my youngest sister attended a Waldorf School.
My mom had a gift store in our town where she also sold Waldorf dolls and other natural toys. The dolls captured my heart and I fell in love with them right away, their sweet, simple faces, how they were made and the philosophy behind them.
I made my first doll after I started having my own children. It took many more years for me to pursue doll making in more detail.
Since then I have also made many other natural toys and there are so many more ideas to realize.
There are still many roads to travel ......
Based on the Rudolf Steiner/ Waldorf Philosophy a doll inspires children to develop and strengthen creative play and imagination. Waldorf inspired dolls have simple facial impressions that leave lots of room for the child to imagine the dolls feelings.
Creative playing helps children to develop nurturing and a sense of their own “self”.
Isn’t that something we need more of in our world today??Children are also heavily oriented on their senses, therefore natural materials are a wonderful choice. Sheep wool retains the child’s body warmth and smell, is naturally antibacterial, soft and keeps it shape.
Every doll and toy I make is unique and will be a special, loved friend for your child for many years to come.
Please check out my website for more info about my creations and pictures.
I can't wait to see where it will lead me.I hope you enjoy looking around my website and if you have questions or would like to order a doll or toy please feel free to contact me.
Im looking forward to hear from you!
My name is Sue and I’m the creative mind behind Polar Bear Creations and maker of many things. I love to work with fabric, wool and other natural fibres.
I love creating, and have been making Waldorf inspired dolls for a couple of years now. My sister went to a Waldorf School in Germany,and that is where I was first introduced to these wonderful, handmade, natural toys and the importance of them to children.
My goal is it to make unique toys with natural materials, love and care.
