I found it very interesting how Alma Siedhoff-Buscher decided to go against the norm and enter into a field of art that was dominated by men. Her focus was on the children's world, she created children's furniture and many different types of children's toys. She created practical, functional, and simple designed furniture for children, These furniture pieces were very multifunctional with the excessive amounts of storage. Her children's toys ranged from puppet-like dolls to brightly colored ship building games which became known as the Bauhaus building game. She built every piece based on customers request and she wanted to meet her customers desires so bad that she limited would her artistic ability. I personally love the geometrical designs she used in both her toys and furniture.
