Waldorf® Play Stand Arch


Waldorf® Play Stand Arch


Our Waldorf® Play Stand Arch is designed to work perfectly with a set of two Play Stands. Together, they have been used for many years by Waldorf® School and others as a foundation for inventive play and learning. This product is also called a canopy arch because toddlers so often sling a blanket over the arch to create a fort or playhouse.

Made in Denver, Colorado.

Materials and Finish

  • CARB 2 compliant birch plywood construction throughout.
  • All finishes are water-based paints and stains so that our furniture is non-toxic and safe for children. There may be an odor when first unpacked but will dissipate more rapidly with warmer temperatures and air movement.
  • Please note, all unfinished products are meant to be finished with stain, sealer or paint before use. Visit our page on working with unfinished toddler furniture to learn more.
  • All products are made to order and typically take 3-5 business days to ship.
  • Since we manufacture all Little Colorado products in our own facility, they start out as raw birch. We can offer every piece unfinished at lower prices if you would prefer to stain or paint it yourself.


Ask a Question
  • What is the width of the open space?


  • Is this sturdy enough so that a toddler can hang or climb on the arch when attached to the benches?

    The Arch is not intended to be hung or climbed on.

  • I bought this a few years ago for my preschool playroom. We LOVE it! We had a flood and it was taken apart by the construction workers. I cannot find the instructions to reassemble it. Also, I think there are wooden dowels missing now. I can only find 3 short ones and 1 long one. If pieces are missing is there replacement parts that can be ordered.

  • Hi, I’m wanting to place an order for the Waldorf play stands and arch, but I wanted to first get an estimate for delivery time. I’m a teacher and desperately want them to arrive in time for the start of school. They would be shipped to my home address in Maryland. If you could give me a timeframe, that would be great. Thank you.

    It would be about 5-7 business days for them to ship and be delivered

  • Hi, I have 2 play stands in my classroom and would love an arch. How does the arch connect to the playstands? Concerned about diameter of pole that canopy would connect to.

    The arch connects using the upper dowel of each play stand. Here is a link to the assembly instructions of the arch to help better explain.
