Waldorf Dolls are loved by young and old the world over. 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. This hand made natural toy is crafted using only the finest materials. Filled with wonderful-smelling lavender and quartz sand, which gives them a weighty-feel (also allowing them to stand up unsupported), these sweet Little Lavender dolls are as soft as can be in their cotton velour gowns. The skin and clothing are 100% organic cotton (Oeko-Tex certified). These dolls are a sensory encounter for children as they experience color, form, texture and a gentle, calming natural scent.
You'll notice that 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.
Grimm's believes that creativity develops the imagination and free spirit. Inspired by the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner ("Waldorf" education), Grimm's Spiel & Holz Design is about the rainbow, happy colors, creativity, and the imagination. Grimm's creates heirloom quality puzzles, building sets, dolls, baby tower, rattles and more. Parents love Grimm's because designs by this German company advance creativity, leaving room for independent play through simple shapes and vibrant colors. Grimm's intent is to develop long-lasting toys that help children discover and develop their own creativity. There are no instructions, and you can do no wrong with a Grimm's toy. Just play, learn, and enjoy.
