Founded by stay-at-home mom Sara McDonald, Magic Cabin began in 1989 with a 12-page hand-drawn catalog which featured McDonald's popular Waldorf-style dolls, and since then Magic Cabin has grown immensely. Wooden toys, beeswax candle-making kits, dress up clothing and even furniture are to be found here.
Magic Cabin's wooden toys are beautiful artisanal works with great attention to detail. And, they can easily be passed down from sibling to sibling as they are made from hearty, natural materials rather than cheap plastics. Having the word Magic in their name is no misnomer as nearly everything they offer has a soupcon of whimsy and enchantment.
As stated on their Web site, "Our mission is to provide quality natural-fiber dolls that represent all the colors of humanity; toys with simple designs to encourage creative, imaginative play."
This is exactly what Magic Cabin accomplishes.
