What is a Waldorf Toy?
A toy is considered a Waldorf toy when it is made from natural materials and invites open ended play that engages a child’s imagination.
What makes a Rocker Board a Waldorf Toy?
Rocker boards are simple curved wooden boards usually made from layered plywood and finished smooth. They are a favorite play item in our younger grades and can be found in each of the early childhood classrooms. Standing on the rocker boards develop a child’s sense of balance and core strength, but this is by no means their only function!
There are many ways to play with a rocker board.
We have seen them used as a marble run launch, a bridge for either a child or toy cars or over a blue silk pond for a game of fishing. They can be used as a cradle for a baby doll or a very small child might curl up in it and rock. They are used to scoot across a room and as a pretend horse. We have also seen them used as a slide when propped up on a sturdy piece of furniture. Your child will show you the limitless possibilities and why it is a very popular Waldorf toy.
These curved wooden boards are crafted by a local artisan and will be featured in the Holiday Faire Marketplace.
Suitable for ages 3+.
