grimm-s-logo.jpg

This set of 6 rainbow stacking elements come nested inside each other.

The four elements water, fire, earth and air offer endless possibilities to discover shapes, colours and building/stacking games.

The rainbow is a fascinating object for children of all ages. Bring a rainbow home and let your child explore form and colours through creative play. Grimm's 6-piece wooden rainbow helps to develope motor skills and sorting techniques but with some fantasy it also can be used to build bridges, tunnels, fences or even small houses. Grimm's wooden rainbow is made of alder wood and has been painted with safe water based colours and is recommended by "Spiel gut" a german toy guide. The largest piece of the rainbow measures 18 cm (7.2 inches). Grimm's toys grow with your child, with the same toys appealling to children of many ages; they are not only wonderful baby toys but are also great, creative toys for young children.

We also carry Grimm's Large Rainbow here: Grimm's Large Wooden Rainbow

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).

Great toy!

This piece is so timeless and elegant. Not only does it serve as a learning tool but it is also aesthetically appealing! I have my son’s displayed in the living room. everyone who passes by the piece is naturally drawn to the puzzle because of its bright colours! Also, I really liked the touch of a personal card written from the company and placed in the box with delivery from the store! Made me feel like a valued customer and that I was dealing with a business who takes pride in the items they sell! Overall the piece is a great gift or an item to add to your toy collection. The wood is study and the colours vibrant! This is a toy I will be keeping as a momento long after my children are done playing with it.

A must-have

I love this wooden rainbow ! It's a wonderful open-ended toy which I think we'll use for a long time, and it also looks great in our living room. For now, our 9 month old likes to unstack it and observe each block. I also love that it's made out of solid wood and without solvant nor paint (they use plant based stains and oil instead). Thank you for carrying this great toy brand!
