Grimm's Handcrafted Wooden Toys: With simple designs and stunning colors, these long-lasting toys not only please the senses but also help children to develop their own creativity. Each piece is handmade in Germany from solid wood and hand finished with a nontoxic, lead-free water-based stain.
Please note: as Grimm's uses non-lacquered wood, some paint transfer can occur during play. This is considered normal. Non-lacquered wood has a lovely texture - the rough texture of the stained wood is not only an important tactile sensory experience for children, but those rough surfaces makes it possible to build in many more different ways, because the parts do not slide down so easily as the wood surface is still natural and not covered with a layer of bright enamel; however if you are concerned about paint transfer we suggest you purchase another item that is lacquered to be on the safe side.
Size: 7 x 10-37 x 0,8 cm.
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 colors 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 color 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!
These are used almost daily at our house—and amazingly, we keep coming up with new uses for them!
The boards are a bit bigger than I expected, which is a good thing. I haven't given them to my Grandson yet, but I'm sure he will love them.
These boards are gorgeous in person they pair perfect with the pastel rainbow or pastel semi circles. The building boards are also fun to play with on their own they can be roads house is stacked up against a couch or on each other. They also make great ramps!
