We are convinced that good, high value products for children can only emerge from a profoundly responsible attitude. At Ostheimer's we take our responsibility very seriously.
For many decades, Ostheimer Wooden Toys have brought an adorable and lovely image of the world into many children´s rooms. The mind of the children senses the world around them as being good. They want to be amazed and to admire and they desire to re-enact all perceived experiences.
Ostheimer wooden toys are produced exclusively from high quality native hardwood, maple and elm. Slight differences in colour and slight deviations in the structure of the grain are not defects, but instead contribute to the special charm and uniqueness of Ostheimer figures. The design and the colour is based on the awareness that the children must still be able to feel and experience the wood.
Their form and colour are purposely kept to a minimum so that your child's fantasy world is preserved and so that their own creative imagination inspires their play. . There is no "right" or "wrong" way to play with Ostheimer buildings or animals and therein lies the beauty of these wonderful wooden toys. Over 50 years ago Margarete Ostheimer began a collection of toys which today more than ever is justified and necessary. The collection was established fifty years ago as an alternative to a "plastic world" and is today a necessary counterweight to the "high tech world" of the playroom.
