Waldorf dolls workshop in Institut Montana Zugerberg
As many of us learn by the time we reach adulthood life is unpredictable. Sixteen years ago I would have never imagined I would return one day in my beloved high school in Switzerland to teach a doll making class!

As all doll mamas know a dirty doll is a proof of love, nevertheless, every once in a while you have no choice but to wash your soft doll. Here are few short tips how to clean a natural fibre doll.
Materials We Use
At Ciao Bimba we take great care to use the best available materials for our dolls. We firmly believe it matters what children play with. We cherish the conviction children are positively influenced by natural toys that provoke their creativity and sense of aesthetics.
How a Ciao Bimba Doll Comes to Life
Each Ciao Bimba doll is born from the imagination and heart of our doll designer Maria Asenova. Our dolls are made following traditional Waldorf doll making techniques. Each Waldorf inspired doll takes up to 12 hours to be made but we love every step of it. Here is graph and a video describing this creative process.
