In 1959, Margarete Ostheimer, a Waldorf teacher (Steiner) in Germany, designs and crafts together with her father a collection of toys, in what is today known as the typical distinctive Ostheimer style, which enliven the imagination. In her own words: “It is the fantasy of our children alone that breathes life into the seemingly stiff wooden figures, the form and colour of which purposely have been reduced to an essential minimum. It is apparent how little coaching our children need to dive into their worlds.”
