Ostheimer wooden figures

Oh I love these little guys. Erin of Bird and Banner posted about Ostheimer wooden figures years ago, and I’ve saved the link to Wooden Wagon diligently in my bookmarks since then. I came across them again the other day while I was searching for another old link, and realized it’s time! I can buy them! I have an almost two year old who loves animals and figurines! (Almost as much as trucks.)

Erin (who btw just welcomed her third child – a sweet little boy! – into the world) told me that she actually bought most of her Ostheimer before she actually had kids. This is a brilliant idea. Because when you don’t have children, it’s very easy to rationalize buying a tiny $15 wooden figurine from time to time. So smart, Erin!

So for those of you who love these, and want them for your eventual children… maybe get started now. I just started our teeny collection and I tell you, I wish I had all of them all at this moment. But I think it’s going to be a process. As Erin also said (this is the post where I essentially quote Erin’s email), the hope is that my children can eventually pass them on to their children. So if it takes a while, that’s okay.

The Wooden Wagon also has all sorts of other great natural fiber and wooden toys. Definitely worth a visit.

    Oh I love these! I believe Nova Natural carries these as well- I was thinking of buying some for Christmas but the $15 per led me to a $5 bucket full of farm animals,haha. Definitely not heirloom worthy, but I know my girls would loose them or the dogs would eventually get a hold of them -_-

    Hello :) These toys are lovely. There is something very sweet about babies playing with something that doesn’t require a battery or a plug.
