What’s more magical than chasing a rainbow? Grimm’s Toys puts this wondrous arch into the hands of your child. There’s a reason young ones are drawn to these primary colors. They help babies and toddlers distinguish objects and older children are stimulated by both bright and monochromatic hues. From stacking towers and blocks to cars, boats and houses for all of their wooden friends, a toy from Grimm’s will stand the test of time and bring hours of imaginative play! Handmade in Europe with sustainable wood, these special playthings are inspired by the Waldorf Steiner education philosophy, focused on developing imagination and creativity at a relaxed pace.
Grimm’s educational wooden toys are made in Europe from alder, lime, beech and maple, all sourced from sustainably managed European forests. They are made in handpicked workshops across Europe and coated with natural colors and oils by the Grimm’s team in Germany. All of the paints and lacquer used to finish your lovingly made Grimm’s toy are harmless and enhance the natural beauty of the wood, allowing the grain to shine through.
Grimm's loves wood because it is a natural material so it always has various markings that show up in their products, making each one unique. Grimm’s toys are always one of a kind, carrying unique marks made by nature. Wood grain has changing structures and colours which serve as proof of its natural origins. The unique variations are proof of quality, not defects. Discover the markings that make your Grimm’s toy Simply Unique!
Every piece of wood has its own appearance, its own character and its own vitality. Its natural characteristics, and unique markings are therefore always to be considered. For example, dark spots on the rainbow are caused by mineral deposits. This means that if the tree had grown further, a branch would have developed at this point.
Black stripes are also something completely natural. This is the so-called pith tube or "heart of the tree". It differs from the surrounding wood by the darker colour and structure. When working on the wood, it can become completely or partially visible. This feature is part of the natural appearance of the wood. Therefore, these are not defects for Grimm's, but quality features of a natural product and as such are desired and welcome by them. We love this uniqueness of wood!
