This gorgeous Octagon Puzzle by Grimms, Speil and Holz contains 32 chunky solid wood pieces, each 4cm deep which are hand painted in complementary colours and comes in a wooden frame. The texture and colours will stimulate the senses of the very young, who can use the chunky pieces through play, building and stacking while older children will be challenged by re-constructing the puzzle, and can explore their creativity by using the pieces outside of the frame creating pictures, shapes, towers, creatures, robots and creating new shapes and structures, through which children develop an understanding of geometry.
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.
Please note: as Grimm's uses non-lacquered wood, some paint transfer can occur during play. This is considered normal. Non-lacquered wood has a lovely texture - the rough texture of the stained wood is not only an important tactile sensory experience for children, but those rough surfaces makes it possible to build in many more different ways, because the parts do not slide down so easily as the wood surface is still natural and not covered with a layer of bright enamel; however if you are concerned about paint transfer we suggest you purchase another item that is lacquered to be on the safe side.
