The toys which surround children in their early years can have a profound effect on their developing skills, creativity and imagination. Freya Jaffke, an experienced kindergarten teacher, explores the nature of children's play and shows how different toys are suitable for different ages.

The book has instructions for making a wide variety of toys, from simple knotted animals and playcloths, to a dollshouse, a play store, puppets, boats and trains, and many varieties of dolls. Presented in a clear step-by-step way, all the instructions are fully described and illustrated.Parents and teachers will find inspiration and helpful guidance in this practical handbook.

'One of the simplest, clearest, and most essential books on toys and play that I have ever read.'
-- The Peridot

'This greatly expanded edition is an excellent handbook with plenty of ideas for teachers and the parents of young children.'
-- Kindling, the Journal for Steiner Waldorf Early Childhood, Spring/Summer 2003.

'Freya Jaffke managed to breathe her many years experience as a master Waldorf kindergarten teacher into a volume capable of inspiring, guiding and reassuring new parents toward a balanced, beautiful life with their children. This is a hands-on approach that is deeply suited to working with and understanding young children. This is a book to enjoy in the deepest sense of the word, and makes an excellent companion to Work and Play in Early Childhood. The new edition adds colour photographs, more toys to make (more joy to bring!), and wonderful discussions of which toys to give to children at what ages, how to create a beautiful, nurturing environment, even tips for clean-up! I have loved this book since it was first published -- this most recent incarnation elevates it from ''wonderful'' to ''must have''.'
