An absolute must for any parent or classroom looking for superior-quality, unique wooden blocks that can be used in 1001 ways! In the hands of little builders, these vibrant, handcrafted blocks transform into grand churches and castles reminiscent of Romanesque architecture from medieval Europe. They can even build self-supporting round arches, like those designed by the Romans! Children will be inspired to use these unique blocks to re-create the bulky stonework found on cathedrals or city walls for imaginative adventures with knights, kings, princesses and dragons! The Building Set's innovative shapes encourage open-ended construction and storytelling, plus give children opportunities for exercising fine motor skills and expanding their spatial and creative abilities. This large-sized set is wonderfully inspiring for creative building and pretend play, especially when used in combination with elements like stones of glass, play silks, sand, dolls and more to create fantastic imaginative worlds for pretend play. It decorates any room, has a stimulative nature, and encourages open-ended play and creativity.
Made in Germany from alder wood and is finished with only certified non toxic, water based stains. Includes sturdy 17" felt-lined storage tray. This set is designed on the same 4x4 scale as most other large Grimm's building sets, and is a wonderful supplement to other 4x4 set such the four elements building set or Shapes & Colors Building Sets.
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 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.
Dimensions: 17 x 17 x 2 inches! (approx 44cm x 44cm x 5cm)
Please note we currently do not dispatch this item to Northern Ireland, Channel Islands or the Hebridies.
