Educational Toys & Peg Dolls

Educational Toys - we carry a line of unique, handmade Waldorf / Montessori-inspired toys designed for open-ended play and education. All of these wooden toys are handmade here in Washington. Educational toys such as these are the building blocks of a Waldorf or Montessori school system, and we've found that many parents really value having handcrafted wooden toys instead of mass produced, imported items. Great for homeschooling, or as heirloom gifts!
