Kids do. In fact, free and independent play is essential for children to develop their emotional, physical, social and cognitive skills. Waldorf play builds neural pathways by engaging all of the senses while preserving the magic of childhood with open-ended fantasy play. Our non-media based toys, made from natural materials, feel, smell, taste (and look) better than plastic and help connect children to the natural world. The simplicity of our toys allows for unlimited open-ended play so that children are nurturing their mind, body and heart while they play in the magical realm of their imaginations. And because natural fibers don’t harbor germs the way plastic does, our toys are safer for them, too!
A Magic Forest’s Waldorf-inspired play space is most suitable for babies and young children through kindergarten age, but we do welcome older children as well. While we do require parents to supervise their children while visiting A Magic Forest, we encourage you to do so without directing their play.
To complement our play space, we have a CAFE that proudly serves Groundwork organic coffee and espresso drinks, organic hot and iced teas, baked goods from local bakers, and organic packaged snacks.

A Magic Forest is a wonderful place to celebrate your child’s birthday! However, we do not allow any form of celebration during regular play hours (so please no cake, presents, singing, etc). If you are interested in booking a private party, please call 310-397-9400 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. A Magic Forest is a great place to hold your private baby shower, too!
