Through play, the child experiences the world and makes it its own. The gateway to the world is formed by the senses. The more varied and "real" the sensory experiences are, the more diversely the child can develop, learn and immerse itself deeply in creative play.
For this reason, wooden toys occupy a special place among toys for children. At Waldorfshop you will find a diverse, educationally valuable selection of wooden toys online!

Advantages of wooden toys for your child
In contrast to toys made of plastic, toys made of wood, a material that comes from nature, enable rich sensory perceptions. The surface of the wood can be felt, the grain and the knotholes in the wood can be felt and discovered. The smell of the wood stimulates the senses and the weight of the wood, as long as the wooden toy is not hollow, corresponds completely to the outward appearance.
High-quality Waldorf wooden toys with natural colours are also ideal for babies, as they can put the toys in their mouths without hesitation.
Wooden toys and manufacturers at Waldorfshop
At Waldorfshop, we therefore offer a large selection of wooden toys for babies and children online from well-known wooden toy manufacturers such as the brands Grimms, Ostheimer, Nic, Kraul, Decor and Fagus, but also wooden toys from smaller, sustainable and high-quality companies such as Birkenhof, Grapat, Verneuer, Die Buntspechte and Drei Blätter.
When selecting manufacturers, we place special emphasis on ensuring that the toys are handmade, sustainable, of high quality and produced regionally, i.e. if possible, in our country. While it is pedagogically important for toddlers to avoid bright colours, wooden toys for older children can be brightly coloured. Commonly used wood for toys is alder wood, spruce wood and beech wood.
Wooden toys and Waldorf toys for all ages
Which wooden toy is right for your child depends, of course, on the age and preferences of the child.
For babies and small children, we offer high-quality wooden toys in our online shop in particularly good, robust quality, such as the colourful rainbow from Grimms with its beautiful, different rainbow colours and the wooden figures and animals from Ostheimer and Die Buntspechte.
For older children, our online assortment includes beautiful wooden toys for role play and for playing with dolls, such as a doll house, small dolls for the doll house, wooden figures, doll carts and wooden shop.
Movement comes into children's toys with our racing car, the ropeway, the wooden marble run, the wooden running wheel or tricycle and wooden scooter.
Playing with wooden building blocks, of which we offer a large selection online, promotes the development of children in many ways. Building blocks in various shapes are particularly suitable for promoting eye-hand coordination and the educational importance for training motor skills is high.
We also offer wooden puzzles online, which are of course much more durable and also suitable for smaller children.
Whichever wooden toy is most suitable for your child, feel free to browse online at Waldorfshop and discover wonderful, child-friendly wooden toys.
