This giant set by Grimm’s Spiel & Holz belongs in every family’s toy box. Includes 100 large, vibrantly-colored natural wood blocks (4 centimeter cubes = 1.6 inches on all sides), plus a storage frame (which measures 17 inches square). This set will fire the imagination of everyone who sees it — toddlers to adults will want to play with these blocks again and again. Create shape and color patterns, build towers, walls, pyramids…the possibilities are endless! Even use them to make exploring basic math skills fun: the colorful blocks can be aids to help children understand addition, subtraction, fractions, physical dimensions (length, width, height), measurement and more. Play with this set will encourage a feeling for colors and forms, 3-dimensional thinking and spatial learning.
Cubes measure 1.6 inches (4 cm) on all sides, making them compatible with any other “4×4” blocks, such as Grimm’s Large Romanesque, 1001 Nights, Basic or Standard Building Sets. Made with non toxic, water-based dyes and unvarnished wood sourced from sustainably managed European forests; all materials are in accordance with EN-71 and CPSIA regulations, certified non-toxic and suitable for use in children’s toys.
Grimm’s Spiel und Holz Design creates handcrafted, imaginative wooden toys for kids of all ages in their workshops in German, Romania, and Bosnia. Inspired by the philosophy of Waldorf education, Grimm’s inspires open-ended play and aims to help children discover and develop their own creativity.
Remarks about Grimm’s colors: You may notice some color transference, which is not considered a defect as the blocks are unlacquered. Grimm’s does not use lacquer in order to preserve the natural feel of the wood, and to make them less likely to shift around and slip when being used in construction.
100 wooden cubes (each measure 4 cm on all sides) in a beautiful array of 20 different colors!
Open-ended toy; kids can create many color & shape designs, either in or out of the frame.
Use for both imaginative/creative play and as a learning tool for making basic math concepts fun.
Each block is cut and sanded by hand, removing sharp edges and corners.
Handcrafted in Germany using sustainable hardwoods & certified child-safe, water based colors (no varnish or paint!)
