Why We Love Grimm's Spiel und Holz

Grimm's Spiel und Holz has created a completely unique and fresh line of toys that exude originality, craftsmanship, and quality. Sustainably harvested European wood is handcrafted into fantastic creations that burst with amazing color from non-toxic water-based dyes. Hand-sanded to perfection, each piece is finished with natural food-grade oils which give a distinctive depth to the color and texture. These toys are lovingly designed to withstand generations of rough and tumble play!

So what's in it for the kids?

Our answer is -- hour upon hour of open-ended creative play! In the spirit of Waldorf education, these toys are only limited by your child's imagination. For example, pair up our Waves Nesting Blocks with a few dolls, cars, boats, playsilks, or other block sets and they magically transform into bridges, tunnels, caves, fences, seesaws, chairs... you name it!
