grimm-s-logo.jpg

54 colourful and chunky pieces create a fantastic tool for creativity with this beautiful Grimm's puzzle. A nice solid wood frame keeps the puzzle pieces in place. Grimm's 1001 Nights Building Set is made of linden wood and has been painted with safe water based colours and natural oils. Each piece of Grimm's puzzles is sanded by hand to ensure smooth, round edges. It measures 44 x 44 cm (17.3 x 17.3 inches) and each piece is 4 cm (1.6 inches) high. Grimm's puzzles are a wonderful decoration for every room and have a strong stimulative nature to be built and played with.

Recommended age: 3 years +

Made in Germany

All Grimm's toys are produced and hand painted in small factories within Germany and Bosnia. Each item is produced with lots of care and anyone that has ever held a Grimm's toy in their hands will understand their slogan: "Joy through colours"! Grimm's develops toys that help children discover their own creativity through simple and reduced shapes that leave room for independent arrangement. Many of Grimm's toys integrate Waldorf and Montessori aspects in their design. Grimm's are one of Europe's most beloved companies for natural toys. Ava's Appletree is proud to offer Grimm's toys now to parents in Canada.

Grimm’s Product Care

Grimm’s stands for quality and longevity. When making our toys, Grimm's Toys carefully selects the wood without defects. At each step, the quality of the wood is checked. But wood lives and responds to air changes. Wood is a natural product and not indestructible, so we can not rule out that something could break. If something breaks, you can repair the piece with wood glue.

Children may be advised and prompted to use caution with their special toys.

If you want to remove dirt from Grimm's products, simply wipe with a damp cloth and some soapy water (if necessary). When drying, please do not place on the heater, otherwise cracks may occur in the wood, but allow to dry at room temperature. Please never clean our products with disinfectant, hot water or similar!

GRIMM'S MANUFACTURING

Grimm's is a family owned and sustainably managed manufacturer, which produces high quality and safe wooden toys made to officially certified standards. In product development, Grimm's Toys is guided by the principles of Waldorf education and other educational approaches, such as Montessori. All their products are tested regularly and comply with the European Toy Safety Standard (EN 71) and US standards.

Grimm's products always have unique traces of nature. With a few exceptions, everything is sanded and cut by hand. The company uses FSC certified  alder, lime, beech and maple wood. Woodworking is outsourced to small independent companies in Europe. The largest of these producers has learned his trade working in our company in Germany. At the company's headquarter, new products are developed, and products are oiled, dipped in colour, assembled, quality checked, packaged and shipped all over the world.

UNIQUE MARKINGS

We love wood because it is a natural material so it always has various markings that show up in our products. The unique variations are proof of quality, not defects. For example, dark spots on the rainbow are caused by mineral deposits. This means that if the tree had grown further, a branch would have developed at this point. Black stripes are also something completely natural. This is the pith tube or "heart of the tree". It differs from the surrounding wood by the darker colour and structure. When working on the wood, it can become completely or partially visible. This feature is part of the natural appearance of the wood. Therefore, these are not defects for us, but quality features of a natural product and as such are desired and welcomed by us. We love this uniqueness of wood!

PAINTED BY HAND

All rainbow friends and decorative figures are hand-painted and decorated in the most loving detail. In assembly and packaging, Grimm's work in part with workshops for adults with special needs in Germany.

OUR COLOURS

The bright colour glaze and plant oils preserve the living surface of the wood in structure and feel. The result is a rough and yet velvety wooden surface, which contributes to a greater play value, because the individual pieces do not slip off so easily. Grimm's Toys use glazing colours and vegetable oil for our products. Their colours are water-based, non-toxic and saliva-fast. Of course, all colours and oils are certified according to the European toy safety standard (EN 71).

Grimms Large 1001 Nights Building Set

As with the large rainbow, this is an amazing Grimm's material for open-ended, creative, imaginary play and lots of sensory learning. We bought them for the child to combine with maple wooden blocks that we made to the standardized measurements that expand in increments and allow huge building potential as enjoyed in kindergarten and early childhood classrooms.. But used on their own (separate from the larger wooden blocks) they are amazing too. The colours are gorgeous, we are so happy that the wood is sustainable and the blocks are so pleasing and fitting to the child's hands and capacities. The child was entranced. And again she kept generating more and more possibilities with the set. It was so exciting to be able to give an open ended, flexible and so beautiful gift. Ava's Appletree did a great job, the mailing was speedy and the set arrived in perfect shape. Thank you for carrying such great quality toys.
