Combine the Sticks with other building blocks, creating stairs, bridges, houses and other buildings!

Unique Markings:

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!

From Nature:

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!

Fun to get out, hard to put away

We already have slats so I was planning to skip these but I really wanted something small enough to make ball runs with so I went for it. They are great for that, and we've enjoyed using them as other things as well. They look beautiful when cleaned up and put away in their box, but that means a) sorting them by color and b) carefully putting them in the box--every one has to be in the perfect position or they don't fit. That's obvious from the photo, but I think they get played with a little less because they are tougher to put away.

Great for building

My kids love making ball runs and towers out of these. We find different things to make with them everyday! So much fun!

Surprisingly Functional

I was seriously on the fence about these, but gave them a shot and I am so glad I did! These have turned out to be our #1 played with item. They are incredibly versatile...from roads, railings, buildings, bridges, to tunnels. They even stand up tall or on their sides if you slide them into the carpet. The only issue is that I have to clean them up every single day.
