With all our dizzying digitization and gadget madness these days, it's comforting to return to our roots with the simple, wooden toy. Why not take that a step further and make the toys yourself?
We are simply in awe of this Waldorf-esque dollhouse puzzle from Shape of a Spoon. They've even been so kind as to provide a full tutorial. We've almost never seen one toy that works so many developmental skills at once. Granted, it will test your skills to make it, but we know that woodworkers live amongst us here. If you happen to find yourself without a bandsaw, you can purchase Glueckskaefer's version here.
