This giant set by Grimm's Spiel und Holz Design includes 100 vibrantly-colored natural wood blocks and a wooden frame. The cubes can be used to make endless creative color and shape designs, either in or out of the frame, and are also building blocks! Encourage the feeling for colors and forms in play, 3 dimensional thinking and spatial learning. Rich and vibrant, this set will inspire the imagination of toddlers to adults, who will want to play with them again and again. Build towers, walls, pyramids, and any number of unique creations. Make learning basic math fun by using the colorful wooden blocks as aids to help children understand addition, subtraction, fractions and physical dimensions (length, width, height).
Cubes measure 1.6 inches (4 cm) on all sides, making them compatible with any other "4x4" blocks, such as Grimm's Large Romanesque and 1001 Nights Building Sets; the frame measures about 17 inches square. Each block size exceeds US and European safety standards for choking hazard. Made with non-toxic, water-based dyes and unvarnished wood which comes from sustainably managed European forests; all materials are in accordance with EN-71 and CPSIA regulations, so they are non-toxic and suitable for use in children's toys.
About Grimm's :
Grimm's has been manufacturing high quality, imaginative wooden toys since 1978. Inspired by Rudolf Steiner's educational philosophies (Waldorf education), these beautiful and unique toys are designed with the intention of helping children discover and develop their own creativity through simplicity of shapes, leaving plenty of room for independent play and imagination.
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.
