Amish Wooden Waldorf Play Barn:

I am hoping to review this barn soon, but wanted to put it on the site now so you’ll have a US made natural non-toxic eco-friendly barn to choose from. I still like the design of the Kinderkram barn better, but I love that this one is USA made. To be continued…

Kinderkram’s barn/stable:


This barn is so beautiful, sturdy enough so children can step on it (and you know they will), so natural, wholesome and made to last through generations. I think the only thing that I didn’t like was the flimsy way the main doors are put on with just a leather thread, one side broke in transportation and could not get put back on. For the money you pay for this, I think they should have taken care of that. I like this one, but I think Camden Rose will make a better one in the future (at least I hope so). Can also be used as a Nativity set backdrop. Solid wood finished with natural Livos oil. Made in Poland.

Plan Toys Barn:


Plan toys barn is probably the best “cheaper” barn you can get. It is made in Thailand by eco-friendly rubber-wood and the company uses eco-friendly paints and finishes. The quality is of course not the same as Kinderkram’s amazing barn, but it’s also a third the price. I like that you can lift off the roof. If your child is still in a stage where he steps on toys, wait or get the Kinderkram barn instead. Make sure you get the all wood version.
