We added some knights and a cart with the horse from Ostheimer and Kinderkram. My husband made some missing equipment (shields and swords).
There is no "right" or "wrong" way to play with Ostheimer Castles or animals and therein lies the beauty of these wonderful wooden toys.
"Play is at the very core of a child's life. It is the way children learn about the environment, the people in their lives, and most of all about themselves. Toys are the tools of creative play and with the right toys, a child can have not only an entertaining, but an enriching experience." - Margarate Ostheimer
All larch small boards needed no further handling. Larch wood is one of our favorites since it needs no coating or oiling. It contains enough of the resin to remain healthy for at least hundred years, it may only loose a bit of the colour, but we grow grey hair with the years, don't we :) All the dryingracks and barns which are grey are made of larch wood.
All we are missing in this play is a princess ...
