Wooden toys in Waldorf education
Children experience the world through play and make it their own. The gateway through which the world is perceived by the child is the senses. The more varied and natural the sensory experiences are, the freer and more varied the child can develop, learn and immerse itself in free play.
As a material derived from nature, wooden toys, unlike plastic toys, allow for rich sensory perceptions. The surface of the wood can be felt, the grain and knotholes in the wood can be felt and discovered. The smell of the wood stimulates the senses and the weight of the wood, unless the wooden toy is hollow, corresponds to the external impression.
In 1957, the company Decor-Spielzeug was founded by Eberhart Schmidt in Kassel as a licensed company of the Decor company in Dornach (Switzerland). Two of the first three employees were people with disabilities, making Decor the first "workshop for the disabled" in Kassel and the surrounding area. From the very beginning, Decor has produced and sold educationally valuable, artistic wooden toys, the so-called "Waldorf toys". Since 2016, the company has been based in the outskirts of Wendland. Sales and large parts of production are carried out here under the company's own direction. As before, the company's focus is on working with people who need care.
