The Waldorf style of learning is one that flavors our specific homeschool and the toys we have in our home reflect that. This is the work bench that I spent all day putting together for my girlies. I can’t keep them out of my tools and they love to explore and build so this was a logical purchase. It is extremely sturdy and most of the tools are actually usable (not, of course, the saw). The minute I was finished my 3-year-old immediately started to build something with the wooden components provided.
