We love wood because it is a natural material so it always has various markings that show up on our products making each unique. Grimm's toys are one of a kind, carrying unique marks made by nature.
The predominantly darker colour harmonies of this rainbow take you into forests full of foliage and fir tree green. Delicate moss mingles with lush meadow green and the animals of the forest are gathering in bright clearings.
Small experiential worlds are created, where little forest spirits, who are always getting up to some sort of mischief, live.
During the Christmas season, a wonderfully sustainable Christmas tree can be created, which in its dark fir dress can also be beautifully decorated with handicrafts, Christmas figures or small electric lights.
This wonderful wooden rainbow by Grimm's, Spiel and Holz Design is hand crafted in Europe. They base the development of their toys on the philosophy of Waldorf Education. Their wooden toys are designed to help children discover and develop their own creativity and sensory awareness with products that want to be touched again and again which communicate their credo: Joy through colour!
These gorgeous toys are made using alder, lime, maple and cherry wood. Wood is natural, regenerative and stimulates the senses. It has texture, sounds different and smells good. Bacteria cannot reproduce on wood. This all is not true for plastic or metal. All dyes used are water based and are non toxic, as is the natural oil used.
- Dimensions (Approx) 35.5 - 36.5cm x 17 1 18cm approx 2kg

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH YOUR PURCHASE:
The following are normal characteristics of the Grimm's Rainbow, and are not considered a fault. Please consider these careful before purchasing:
- It is normal for the bows to be varying widths, some may be thicker than others, and some bows may vary in width over the length of the bow.
- Visible grain and knots and both normal characteristic of the rainbow which are cut from a single slice of tree truck. Sometimes the natural grain can be dark and patchy in areas.
- It is normal for the colour staining to have variatons, on the inside centre of the rainbow there is often less staining, and there can be areas where the natural oils in the wood cause a speckled or patchy affect to the staining.
- Grimm's use a stain on their wooden toys rather than a lacquer - it is normal for some colour transfer to occuer during play. Non-lacquered wood has a lovely texture - the rough texture of the stained woode is not only an important tactile sensory experience for children, but those rough surfaces make it possible to build in more ways, because the parts do not slide down so easily as the wood surface is still natural and not covered with a layer of enamel; however if you are concerned about paint transfer we suggest you purchase an item that is lacquered to be on the safe side.
- The pieces of the rainbow are all hand cut and fit together like a puzzle - the pieces will only fit together one way around, if you find the pieces don't fit, simply take the piece of bow, turn it 180 degrees and replace. This feature helps develop problem solving.
