At Baba Me we are thrilled to now have a huge range of Ostheimer Wooden Figures and Animals. We are so proud to stock Ostheimer here, we love the history and ethics of the company just as much as we love the animals, castles, figures and vehicles!
Every single Ostheimer piece is drawn out by hand, sawn by hand, hand carved to give it that special unique touch, rubbed down, sanded, painted and stained with organic oil, before getting the final Ostheimer stamp on the bottom that is so well recognised around the world today. With a history that spans over 90 years, this beautiful Wooden Toy company to this day makes sure that every piece you own has been made with love and detail.
All wood for Ostheimer wooden figures and animals is sourced from sustainable forests that are local to their factories. Ostheimer use a mixture of Maple, Ash and Alder wood which gives each of the figures a beautiful texture and individuality. Ostheimer employ over 35 people at their factories in Germany and Poland, over 100 men and women also finish these wonderful toy figures in their homes.
At Baba Me we love how open-ended these wooden animals and figures are. These wooden toy figures will stimulate a childs imagination and bring hours of joy to them. There really is something for everyone in the range at Baba Me. Our staff have chosen parrots, goats, knights, castles, turtles, mermaids and dwarves as starter sets to join their wooden toy collections. Some of our staff have owned Ostheimer pieces for years and so are extra pleased that we now stock this exceptional range!
Ostheimer delight in creating fantasy worlds for children of all ages. As an adult I love sitting down with my kids and watching as they bring these figures to life in ways I could never do myself! The original founders of Ostheimer wanted to slow things down, to keep things simple for children. To let them create their own magic fairy tale world. Which figures will join your home first? There are over 300 to choose from at Baba Me!
