Welcome to Bracken Willow, the place where the toys, craft kits and whimsies of my imagination meet the world.

I'm a friend, woman, mother and child living in Auckland, New Zealand, and an avid, compulsive, don't-want-to-stop crafter. I particularly love toys created in the tradition of Rudolf Steiner schools (also known as Waldorf Schools), where natural materials of pure wool felt, wool roving, silk, wood, acorns, etc. are used.

I started making toys for my daughter some years ago, and while her collection is now overflowing, my fingers don't want to stop creating little creatures of tales and whimsy. And so to save our home from being overrun with small furry creatures, we created Bracken Willow.
