Ostheimer Wooden Chicken House

The perfect resting place for all your little Ostheimer chickens and farm animals. 

Give chickens a cozy home with Ostheimer's wooden chicken house. A door for the farmer and one for the chickens so that they can easily enter and leave the chicken house. Pale blue with a terracotta coloured roof, it will complement a range of farm and country settings. You could add some hay to make it even more realistic. 

Little ones will love putting the chickens in and out of the chicken house, seeing if they've laid any eggs, and hopping them up and down the open door. You could even add a rooster to the roof. Opening the door is great for refining their pincer grip and other fine motor skills.

This waldorf house will lend itself to all sorts of story-telling opportunities, as children decide for themselves who will be living in the wooden house. It's delightful to hold and play with, due to the gorgeous smooth plywood used. 

The soft colours also lend themselves to that wonderful fairytale setting children are so drawn to. 

  • Suitable for children over 3 years.
  • Made from sustainable hard wood, painted with non-toxic water based paint and finished with organic oil.  
  • Dimensions: 23 x 21 x 17cm

Ostheimer-Figures are hand-crafted and made with so much attention to detail, it will allow children to immerse themselves into the vivid imaginative world of play. 

Hand Crafting of each Ostheimer Piece:

From the draft to the finished product Ostheimer toys pass through many hands while they are designed, sawed out, sanded, rubbed-off, painted, oiled, and shipped out: and each step in this long process of careful handcrafting is inspired by wish to give children toys of truly high quality to play with. This way, each Ostheimer wooden figures becomes a valuable individual piece of work.

To bring the artistic layout into shape, the accurately drawn silhouettes of our figures are stamped onto the finely planed planks. Even at this point it is necessary to work with care, taking into account the shade and grain of the wood to suit the proportions of the figure. Carried out with flair and accuracy the sawing creates the basis for the correct profile of the figures. The pre-sanding removes sawdust and smooths the surface of the wood. Next, the lively form of the figures is created by an artist. Thus we create the characteristic form, which is distinctive for our toys. A soft final touch of the contours finishes the process of shaping our figures and prepares the surface for the following paint-work. Now our figures are gently painted by hand using a fine paintbrush. Thus, they get their tender, child-oriented appearance. Transparent colours allow the beautiful wood texture to amplify its warm charisma. An immersion bath in high-quality organic oil imparts our wooden figures with colour retention and protects the surface. Not before our figures have passed a final quality-check and been given the Ostheimer-seal of quality, are they carefully packed and delivered to children all over the world.

Recommended for children over 3 years.
