My name is Sue  and I’m the creative mind behind Polar Bear Creations. 
Proud mom of 3 great boys, that are pretty much all grown up now and I'm happily married to my wonderful man .
I'm originally from Germany where I met and fell in love with my husband.
I followed him across the big pond over 20 years ago and have since lived in different parts of Canada and the US.  I can't believe it has been so long already and what a great journey it has been.

So how did I get into making Waldorf inspired dolls?

I don't think I can remember a time when I wasn't creative, but my introduction to Waldorf dolls came when my
youngest sister attended a Waldorf School. My mom had a gift store in our town where she also sold Waldorf dolls and other natural toys. The dolls captured my heart and I fell in love with them right away, their sweet, simple faces, how they were made and the philosophy behind them.
Based on the Rudolf Steiner/ Waldorf Philosophy a doll inspires children to develop and strengthen creative play and imagination. Waldorf inspired dolls have simple facial impressions that leave lots of room for the child to imagine the dolls feelings.
Creative playing helps children to develop nurturing and a sense of their own “self”.
Isn’t that something we need more of in our world today??
I made my first doll after I started having my own children. It took many more years for me to pursue doll making 
in more detail. Since then I have also made many other natural toys and there are so many more ideas to realize.
There are still many roads to travel ...... 
I can't wait to see where it will lead me.I hope you enjoy looking around my website and if you have questions or would like to order a doll, please feel free to contact me.
I'm looking forward to hear from you!
