Ostheimer Forest Toys

There is something magical about picking up an object that has been whittled from a tree that once grew in the forest and lovingly shaped, by a toy maker in Germany, into a figure that fits softly in hand.  Ostheimer figures warm to the touch and stare back in sweetly painted eyes and dreamy watercolor decoration. As a child, I cherished these wooden figures and it gave me great joy to pass them down to watch my children play with them happily as I once did. I'm still amazed at the quality these figures have, they only get better in time and become something between a very cherished collectible and friend.  I thought I'd share our newest forest friends from Bella Luna Toys, our favorite place to purchase them, in case you were wondering where to find them. You can also make special orders if you don't see the one you're wanting on their site, which is something we really appreciate. Here's to sweet wooden toys!
