Grimms produce stunning toys with a focus on colour! They are produced by a small, family run business based in Southern Germany. There they coat the wood with natural oil, stain with water-based colour, and control the quality of their products, then packand send them all over the world! Grimms feel that wood is expressive, refined through the signs of time. It is so robust it accompanies us a long time. Wood is aesthetically beautiful - it tells the story of nature and life. When it's journey through the generations comes to an end, it is able to be recycled back into nature.
This set of wooden blocks in a net is made up of 15 blocks in natural wood colour and of various dimensions. The play options are never ending as building blocks such as these are THE foundation toys for children. These hand crafted, sought after blocks are THE blocks for that foundation. Frederich Froebel recognised this, using wooden blocks sensitively in his pedagogy and calling them 'gifts'
Small children from 1yr old build towers and knock them down again, they fill containers with them and empty them again. From 3 years on when imaginative play begins, they use them as cars, hammers, telephones, food and animals. They build homes and use them as country side props. The blocks guide children through childhood, there is no limit to creativity.
The wood surface of these blocks is raw and unvarnished with the natural iregularities of the wood and it's grain showing through. The blocks are hand finished and sanded until they are satiny smooth. Wood is naturally, innately, mildly antiseptic and thus hinders bacterial growth on it's surface.
Age Guide: 1year+
