I've been tossing up for years now about buying an expensive wooden kitchen and stable and dolls house for my little ones. More than anything I like the idea that they don't need a physical kitchen to play "kitchen" or a dolls house to play "house". I just don't want my kids to be "consumers" so I'm pretty strict about what they have in the way of "stuff". I know a waldorf homeschooler whose girls have 2 wooden crates - that's all. And some baby dolls. And apparently with the crates they can create almost anything. I love it. Whenever we travel around the world to "poorer" nations, I'm always struck by kids hanging out on the street playing so nicely with barely anything at all. A tin can maybe, a ball. KWIM? Anyway I'm still pulled in the direction of the gorgeous waldorf toys, but I wanna hold out. Any moms out there who are of the same view?
