Grimm's Wooden Toys from Germany
The traditional company Grimm's from southern Germany, popular all over the world, has been producing high-quality wooden toys since 1978. "Help me to do it myself" once wrote Maria Montessori and here the idea of Grimm's takes hold, namely to give children toys with which they can develop themselves and give free rein to their imagination. In the meantime, the beautiful and colorful wooden children's toys should not be missing in any child's room.
Why are toys from Grimm's so popular?
Not only are the durable wooden toys from Grimm's so popular with Montessori and parents who stand behind Waldorf education, but also with everyone who wants high-quality and sustainable products for their children. All wood used is fairly produced and sustainably sourced from forests. Grimm's produces exclusively in the EU and has everything made in workshops for the disabled whenever possible. But they also design and craft directly in their own workshop, which makes Grimm's an exceptionally popular wooden toy manufacturer. The simple shapes in rainbow colors bring warmth, joy and creativity to the children at home, because with the beautiful building blocks, mandalas and the popular rainbow of wood can be stacked and sorted, it can create large and small structures and look simply fabulous as a nursery decoration. Did you know that the Grimm's collection can also be combined with each other? So great bridges can be built with the rainbows, the rainbow friends are the inhabitants in the forest, the building blocks create small houses or large castles, whole worlds can be created.
Wood instead of plastic toys - back to tradition and sustainability
Wooden toys have never been out of fashion, but when the world market was flooded with plastic toys in the 1980s, traditional games fell out of sight for many. In the meantime, many parents are coming to their senses and appreciate handmade wooden toys more again. Grimm's is a company that takes the pulse of the times and still remains true to itself and the environment. Packaging designs have been made eco-friendly, the monochromatic Rainbow Friends are now designed internationally in different skin tones, and gender neutrality has been writ large from the start! The FSC-certified wood used is alder, lime, maple and beech and comes only from sustainable European forests, and many popular Grimm's toys have been awarded the Spielgut seal. Wood radiates liveliness, refined by the traces of time: it is so robust that it accompanies us for a long time. Wood tells us its story about nature and the world and about our lives. When it has lived out its story to the end, it joins the cycle of nature again.
