If you had to choose ONE and only one toy for your toddler what would it be? You'd likely want something open-ended, so that your child would play with it for hours without ever being bored.


It should be safe and solid, so that you wouldn't have to worry about them getting hurt. And it should be beautiful and physically inviting, so that your children regularly wants to play with it.

With this Waldorf opened-ended toy, your child will stay engaged, playing with it for much longer than most toys.


It can be used both inside and outside (just don't leave it outside in the rain) and can be used for more high energy physical play or for calmer quiet moments.

Lastly, the simplicity of this piece is beautiful and attractive. Placed in a playroom or a bedroom, it is an interesting architectural statement piece that can be fully part of your home decoration. This item is handmade in Canada from natural material.
