In January 2018 Michael Olaf will close. The owners/creators, Jim and Susan Stephenson, who are now in their 70's will retire. Thank you for all of your support over the years. With very few exceptions (those things that are made locally, such as the slatted chair, topponcino, and a few other hard-to-find items) as each book, toy, or tool runs out it will not be reordered. Please keep this in mind for your school ordering, gift ordering, holiday ordering.
AGE 1-3 FAMILY LIFE, Preparing and Serving Food

Just as in the first "casa dei bambini" or children's house in Rome, very young children today love to participate in the real work of the family - such the cleaning, dusting, cooking, gardening - with real child-size tools that help them do a good job. Favorite activities at this age include: cutting and serving fruit and vegetables, all aspects of cooking and baking, setting a beautiful table with flowers and candles for a real meal, cleaning up after a meal, washing dishes, and other activities suited to their particular culture. NOTE: This are real tools, not toys. Many of them should be used under adult supervision. Safety first.
