My MIL is very intent on purchasing a playstructure for my 4.5 yo twins. Her offer is very generous in spirit, but can anyone recommend any companies that might have swingset types of things that a little more "waldorfy"?

Our Waldorf school actually has a Rainbow playset out in the play yard. We have one too in our yard. They are made of wood, of course the slide and swings are plastic but in the overall scheme of things playsets are open ended and encourage imaginative play which is the point, right?

Sandboxes are definately "Waldorfy" Everyday I am amazed at the imagination it is inspiring in my daughters!

THANK YOU for that site!!!! That was just the inspiration I needed.

I had a few "features" (swing, zip line, sand, water, climbing/height, etc.) that I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate in our natural landscape.

Awesome.
