This unique puzzle has 12 pieces, each one a different shape and color, but the 4 sections are grouped by color family. This creates endless possibilties for an inquisitive toddler who will enjoy taking the puzzle apart and creating new shapes and designs with the pieces. Older children will enjoy putting the pieces back together. This beautiful puzzle makes a wonderful gift and is a toy that can be enjoyed by all ages. The puzzle allows children to experience colors and shapes in a beautiful, natural form. The puzzle comes in a beautiful, flat wooden tray for easy storage. The solid wood pieces are sanded to eliminate any sharp edges. They are hand dipped in child-safe, water-based color stain to give them their vibrant colors.
A Note about Grimm's Colors:
You may notice some color transference on the blocks. This 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 (which is in line with their aim to design toys according to principles of Waldorf and Montessori education). Unlacquered blocks are also less likely to shift around when being used to construct.
Grimm's Spiel and Holz Design has been manufacturing high quality, imaginative wooden toys since 1978. Inspired by the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner (Waldorf education), these beautiful and unique toys are designed with simple shapes, vibrant, natural colors, and a gentle texture enjoyed by all ages. Grimm's creates a growing range of heirloom quality puzzles, building sets, dolls, stacking towers, baby rattles and more. Parents love Grimm's because this German company makes long-lasting toys that stimulate the imagination and encourage children to discover and develop their own creativity.
