Each item is then given its characteristic Ostheimer carving, then sanded, hand painted and finally dipped in organic oil. At each stage of the process the human hand is present and in control.

Product Description

Ostheimer are today unique in the way that they make their beautiful wooden figures. The vast majority of wooden toys are sawn out using a computerised process. Not at Ostheimer! Each template is transferred to the wood and sawn out by hand. Each figure is then given its characteristic Ostheimer carving, sanded, hand painted and finally dipped in organic oil. At each stage of the process the human hand is present and in control.

We offer a large selection from the Ostheimer collection, all designed specifically to stimulate the child’s imagination, rather than presenting them with a fixed concept. It is the fantasy of the child that breathes life into these seemingly stiff wooden figures, whose form and colour has been purposely reduced to an essential minimum. Ostheimer takes great care in shaping and crafting each individual figure so as to preserve this fantasy world and thereby give children the ability to draw on their creativity during play.
