Waldorf Steiner influenced design with no face.
Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education, suggested that children’s playthings should be largely unformed in order to stimulate a child’s imagination so Waldorf toys are often simple, without a lot of detail. The more open ended the toy the more flexible the play can be. If you have a doll with a painted on face then if you want her to be happy, excited, sad, thoughtful or grumpy this is constrained by its pre-existing expression
Waldorf dolls have minimal facial features, and sometimes no faces at all. As is the case with most aspects of Waldorf education, the reason is not arbitrary. Waldorf dolls have minimal or no faces in order to encourage the imagination of the young child—to cultivate her “inner picturing” abilities.
Here at Cutchycoo we only know what we have read on Waldorf Steiner ethos, but we like to have soft knitted/crochet toys for babies and young children
Machine washable and suitable from birth.
