About Kathe Kruse Waldorf Dolls

The beautiful handmade Kathe Kruse Waldorf dolls (handmade in Germany of natural materials: wool, cotton) come in many sizes and styles.  See Kathe Kruse Waldorf Dolls

Kathe Kruse is the only official maker of Waldorf dolls approved/licensed by the Waldorf Association.

The beautiful Kathe Kruse Waldorf dolls are still made just as they were made by the Kathe Kruse Company 100 years ago, individually handmade using natural materials.  The warmth of the natural wool and cotton, rendered in beautiful colors and fabrics and lovely doll designs, brings each doll to life.  Because they are individually handmade using natural materials, the Kathe Kruse Waldorf dolls are unique as each child is unique.  By playing with these dolls, children develop their imagination and creativity.  The charming, simple expression of these Waldorf dolls give children a clean slate to stimulate their imaginations and express their own feelings.

Find a great selection of Kathe Kruse Waldorf dolls available at Magic Cabin, in many sizes and styles.

The Kathe Kruse Waldorf dolls embody the Waldorf philosophy that a child should grow up in a natural environment with limited stimuli like televisions ,computers and electronics.  To read and tell stories to a child is much more important to a child's development and emotional well-being; reading to a child and telling stories sparks their curiosity  and challenges the brain.  Simple educational toys encourage a child to ask, "What is hidden in this thin, or how does it work?   Toys should never be too perfect nor have a specific function - rather a toy should be simple.  Kathe Kruse's goal is for children to discover their imagination and creativity, growing and learning while playing.

The neutral features of a Waldorf doll help to develop a child's imagination and allows the child to see the doll laughing, crying, sleeping, and being happy or sad.  Through the child's imagination, the child imparts soul-feelings to the doll.

There are different Waldorf dolls for different ages.  In the first year, a simple Kathe Kruse Towel Doll without arms and legs is ideal.  It is easy to grab and little fingers practice holding the doll.

After the first birthday, children love to carry their dolls, and begin using their imaginations to develop the doll's personality.  A small light doll with arms and legs is ideal.  (For example, the Kathe Kruse Sweetheart Dolls, the Kathe Kruse Nicki-Gnome dolls, and the Kathe Kruse Nicki Baby Dolls.

At around the third year, children tend to want to have and hold a doll like him/herself.

In kindergarten the child meets other children with whom the child has to get along and exchange views.  At this age children want to practice pretend washing with the doll, caring for the doll (dressing and changing clothing) and just playing with the dolls, using their imaginations.  At this age children also enjoy caring for their little doll friend(s); finger combing the hair soft mohair wool hair or the soft boucle wool hair; changing doll clothing outfits .
