Ostheimer animals are beautiful handcrafted wooden figures. Ostheimer animals are made in Germany and often employ less abled adults to make these, with each person needing 12 months training before they complete their apprenticeship. These natural wood figures are in the Waldorf style which allows children to use their imagination to play with them, in their own little world. The wooden figures have been handmade, hand-painted with non-toxic dyes and will last a generation. Build your Ostheimer collection or mix and match this brand and Holztiger.
