This set includes 10 Little Dwarf "men" with beards, each in a different vibrantly-colored outfit. These high quality natural fiber dolls are lovingly hand made in Europe by Grimm's Spiel & Holz in the Waldorf tradition with simple features that capture the essence and innocence of the young child. The skin and clothing are 100% organic cotton (Oeko-Tex certified). Each doll has quartz sand in the base to allow them to stand unsupported. This handmade natural toy is crafted using only the finest materials.
Also available in a Set of Rainbow Dwarfs without beards (which could be imagined as little dwarf "children" or women dwarfs). Find landscapes for these dolls from Grimm's including Dwarf Village blocks, Fairy Tale Village, Houses, Rainbows & more!
Waldorf dolls have minimal facial features and just a hint of an expression. This is allows a child to use her imagination and inner picturing capacities. A Waldorf doll can easily be imagined to be happy or sad, laughing or crying, unlike more conventional dolls with rigid plastic faces and fixed expressions.
CARE: Spot-clean with water. A mild soap can also be used, but no alcohol-based cleaners.
Nestled in small-town in Germany and steeped in the rich European history of handcrafted woodworking and toy-making, Grimm's Spiel und Holz Design creates heirloom-quality, imaginative toys loved by children (and even adults!) of all ages. Inspired by the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner (called Waldorf in the US), Grimm's believes that creativity develops the imagination and free spirit.
Parents love Grimm's because these high-quality designs encourage open-ended play, exploration and the imagination. The engaging, colorful creations include heirloom-quality puzzles, beautiful building blocks sets, dolls, stacking towers, baby rattles, teething toys and much more.
