Grimm's Spiel & Holz Large Romanesque Wooden Building Set is a beautiful set of heirloom wooden building blocks. This oversized set is beautiful to look at - just begging to be picked up and played with!
In the hands of little builders, these beautiful blocks transform into grand churches and castles reminiscent of Romanesque architecture from medieval Europe. They can even build self-supporting round arches, like those designed by the Romans! Children will be inspired to use these unique blocks to re-create the bulky stonework found on cathedrals or city walls for imaginative adventures with knights, kings, princesses and dragons! The Building Set's innovative shapes encourage open-ended construction and storytelling, plus give children opportunities for exercising fine motor skills and expanding their spatial and creative abilities.
Handmade in Germany. For ages 3 and up. Size: 62-piece set includes sturdy 17-1/2" felt-lined storage tray. This set is designed on the same 4x4 scale as most other large Grimm's building blocks, and works especially well with their standard 1001 Nights Oriental Building Set.
Grimm's Spiel und Holz Design has been manufacturing high quality, imaginative wooden toys since 1978. Inspired by the philosophy of Waldorf education, these beautiful and unique toys are designed with simple shapes, vibrant, natural colors, and a gentle texture that can be enjoyed by both children and adults of all ages.
Featuring an attractive minimalist design and harmonious color scheme that children are drawn to, Grimm's toys are designed to help children discover and develop their own creativity and leaving plenty of room for independent play and imagination.
The colors are based on the natural rainbow colors. These blocks are primarily made from sustainably harvested European hard woods; all oils are natural and all dyes used are water based, making them safe and suitable for children.
