Grimm’s Spiel & Holz Four Elements Wooden Building Set is a beautiful oversized heirloom puzzle blocks set that is absolutely stunning! It is a puzzle to solve or a large building blocks set. Also can be used to create scenes with wooden figures, or puppet shows. Can be combined with other Grimms puzzle pieces. The four elements of earth, fire, water and air are here represented by a cave, flames, a wave and a rainbow.
Winner of a 2011 Parent’s Choice Gold Award, and named outstanding “heirloom toy.”
Review from Parent’s Choice:
Earth. Air. Fire. Water. Each of the four elements is represented in this innovative building set. More like waves or organic forms than traditional geometric blocks, these distinctive building shapes create mountain ranges, swirling oceans, alien landscapes, winding highways, futuristic skylines, and a gallery of sculptures. These beautifully colored shapes are eco-friendly in materials as well as longevity. This is, in our opinion, an heirloom toy. ©2011 Parents’ Choice
Made in small-town Germany by Grimm’s Spiel und Holz Design, a company inspired by the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner (called Waldorf education in the USA). Grimm’s believes that children should explore the world around them and learn to think creatively. Parents love Grimm’s because these high-quality designs encourage exploration, out-of-the-box thinking, and open-ended, independent play. The engaging, colorful creations include a wide array of unique puzzles, all kinds of building blocks of various sizes and configurations, dolls, stacking towers, baby rattles & grasping toys and much, much more. All of Grimm’s products are made from sustainable alder, lime, and maple timbers, hand finished with non-toxic and water based dyes. Grimm’s uses green electricity sources and minimal packaging.
