Custom Made Waldorf Toys for Sale: My name is Jonathan Knock. My son Caleb attends the parent-child group here at Merriconeag, and after seeing how much he loved the toys here, I was inspired to begin creating Waldorf-style toys for others to enjoy. I specialize in playstands, and can make an unfinished pine playstand for $70, or set of two for $125. I can create custom playstands with your choice of wood and finish for slightly more. I also make Advent and birthday spirals, wooden doll strollers, and play kitchens. These items are locally made, at great savings over catalog prices for similar toys. I can also deliver to the school, so you save on shipping charges! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (978)290-3382. I will work with you to create a piece that is truly unique to your home and family. I am in the process of creating an Etsy shop; for the time being, please email me for pictures and more information. I look forward to creating custom Waldorf pieces for you!
