Gluckskafer Birthday Train
Glückskäfer Birthday Train
Celebrate birthdays in style with a six-piece celebration piece that little trainspotters will love. This wooden train is a twist on the traditional Waldorf celebration ring - it includes a large train engine and five colourful carriages, each with a metal slot for a candle, and the train and each carriage can be taken off the track. For first birthdays, just use the engine and with each passing year, add another carriage until the child is six. As a decorative feature, this train will be enjoyed for many years to come, long after your child as passed their sixth birthday.
This birthday train celebration piece is made with FSC wood and finished with non-toxic, water-based colour stain. Candles measuring 1.4cm in diameter will fit this train.
This train measures 49cm x 6cm x 8cm.
Important: This is not a toy. Always supervise children around candles.
Celebrate birthdays, family occasions, Christmas and other religious and cultural events with these fabulous celebration rings and spirals. Slot in candles and colourful numbers, letters and characters into the holes that are relevant to the special event and can be used as a discussion point for your family. For each birthday, add a candle and a new personalised ornament and, as the years pass and the slots become filled with candles, move the ornaments into the centre. You needn’t hide your celebration ring away, only bringing it out for parties: these traditional decorations can also be used throughout the year as a centre piece on your dinner table.
Celebration rings are inspired by the Waldorf Steiner education movement which advocates thoughtful, creative at an unhurried pace. Waldorf educational products are beautiful, simplistic and made with natural materials, allowing children to fill in the blanks with their imaginations.
Glückskäfer toys are beautifully crafted following Waldorf and Montessori philosophies that encourage children to discover creative play independently. Timeless toy designs made from natural materials and waterbased colour stains that allow the grain of the wood to show through increasing the feeling of connection to the natural world. Glückskäfer work with midwifes and child educators to help design their toys and have a strong focus on early child development. Materials are carefully chosen to be environmentally friendly and tactile. We love the beautiful colours and classic styles.
