Along with Christopher Clouder she wrote Creative Play for your Baby for Gaia.

But with this book, "Creative Play for Your Toddler", it was all I could do to turn each page to skim through the entire book, since smug . It has all sorts of projects for homemade toys and their significance to the Waldorf way of life.

The reason why I opened this book I have an allergy to a tone of self-righteousness in books.

i really wanted to like this book, but i just haven't used it at all. it's all about making simple toys for your children, which in itself is not bad. but the ideas for toys were nothing that i couldn't come up with on my own, and many were unneccessarily time consuming and could not really involve the kids in making (meaning spending hours of my extremely limited me-time making a stuffed animal for my child).
i've gotten better ideas from other books - such as putting up a "clothesline" with clothespins at your child's height and giving them squares of leftover/excess fabric. sorry for going off topic, but i wanted to share that idea because my daughter loves it!

A few minutes of Googling would have saved the one-star critics some grief. Steiner Waldorf toys are, by definition, handmade from all natural materials. No, the projects in this book are not meant to be completed by your child. You make them and your child plays with them, just like it says in the product description. If you're not somewhat interested in Waldorf principles, and somewhat crafty, this is not the book for you.

But if you want to provide your child with aesthetically pleasing open-ended playthings, without spending a fortune, this is a wonderful resource. Most of the projects can be completed in an hour or less, and can be modified, with a little imagination, to suit the materials you have at hand. Best of all, each chapter includes an overview of the qualities these toys are meant to encourage. The summary of interaction is particularly powerful and integral to Waldorf methods.

I found this book in our local library, and after a week of reading it over and over I realized we needed to own it ourselves. I can't say exactly what it is about this book that calls to me - it is really a basic introduction to Waldorf principles and a collection of projects that is sizable, but not as many as other toy-crafting books. But for some reason it speaks to me in a way other texts haven't. The text throughout is beautifully and intelligently written, and contains some wonderful wisdom about childhood and play. The projects, I think, will be wonderful springboards to my creativity and beautiful heirloom toys for my son and future children to enjoy. So while there are other books about toy-making and Waldorf principles that are much more involved, I think this simple book will be one I refer to most, simply to be enlightened and refreshed.

I was really expecting a lot more out of this book. Some of the projects don't even have instructions, just a picture.
I get the feeling this is for parents that have a lot more time & skill on their hands than I do. Disappointed.

This book contains project ideas and an overview of the Steiner approach to learning. Don't be intimidated if you don't sew or saw or hammer ( me neither, I only sew a little). The projects have definitely inspired different choices in materials that I'd like to use in my classroom.

This book is a good introduction to the Waldorf philosophy regarding play in the toddler/pre-school years. I love Waldorf's emphasis on natural materials and imagination, which is severely lacking in today's toy stores filled with flashing, moving, blaring, plastic "learning" toys. Whenever I do find simple toys made of natural materials, they are almost always too expensive for me. (Especially those Waldorf dolls! YIKES!) Now I can learn how to make these simple toys myself with less of a monetary investment in the materials than if I were to buy the finished product. And I don't feel guilty substituting less natural, quality materials for cheaper ones if I need to, because it will still be much better than anything I can find in stores. (For example, using recycled plastic felt instead of 100% wool felt.) I was disappointed to read one review where the mother was overwhelmed with the directions of making these toys, so is giving the book away. Even if you do not make any of these toys, there is valuable information on play in the toddler years that is worth the read.

Book is more about making toys for your child to play with other then ideas of fun things to do with them.
Purchased for my son and daughter in law who are new parents.
They loved it.
