A Waldord doll, also called sunchild doll or Steiner doll, is a doll that meets the educational principles of anthroposophy. The doll must consist of natural materials such as wool, felt and cotton. All details of the doll are deliberately kept simple to allow children to use their imagination and creativity as much as possible. That is why the facial expression is always neutral. Arms and legs are soft and flexible to represent all natural postures.
Through various versions of the doll, the development cycle of the child can be followed; from a very simple button doll for a baby to a play baby whose clothes can be changed and the hair can be combed for a more independent playing child.
