hi, i have a 19 month old daughter, & i just started learning about waldorf toys & education. all the waldorf inspired toys i have seen are very expensive, & we are on a very limited budget ($11 an hour to support a family of 3!) anyways, my mom & dad bought LO a holztiger wooden animal set for christmas, & they are very well made & beautiful. Lo being only 19 months, she is very rough on toys so i am worried about buying her more waldorf toys since they seem more fragile than the cheap plastic toys. her new wood animal set is already dented & chipped & a few broken :( ANY SUGGESTIONS????? i really want to replace all her plastic electronic toys with some wood/wool ones, but i cant afford for her to break them all so fast.
ps. i would LOVE to learn to make the toys, but i have NO sewing experience & online tutorials seem to hard for me.
