Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf education, described babies as being "all sense organ." Babies and toddlers are taking in the world and learning about its workings through all of their senses, therefore it is important to give them soft toys and playthings that will nourish their delicate sense of touch. The soft and plush toys we carry at Bella Luna Toys are made of organic and natural fibers, such as cotton, wool, and silk, to appeal to a baby's sense of touch, and which have a calming and soothing quality.
