Building Set Part 2

This unique and useful building set offers a wide range of color combinations and shapes. An essential addition for any home or classroom, children will find many way to use these building elements for open-ended play, building structures and learning new concepts. Stacking and combining new shapes is a fun and engaging way for children to gain an understanding of geometric forms. The shapes are excellent 3-D math manipulatives, even for older children, to explore geometry concepts including circles, squares, rectangles, cubes, cylinders, triangles, measurement and much more.

A brilliant set on its own, and sized to work in conjunction with the other large 4x4 wooden building sets by Grimm's. Other blocks with a 4 cm thickness ("4x4" include the Large 1001 Nights or Romanesque Building Sets, Colours and Shape Building Set Part One and more. Manufactured according to the stringent European toy safety standard EN71.


4 stacking wooden frames, each 31cm x 11cm (12.2 in x 4.3 in)

42 pieces, 7 colours, 4 geometric forms: large equilateral triangles, small equilateral triangles, trapezoids & semi-circles

About Grimm's:

Parents love Grimm's toys because designs by this German company advance creativity, leaving room for independent play. Grimm's toys support holistic sensory perception and development, stimulate a harmonic colour sense, plus they are long-lasting and ageless in design.

Inspired by the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner, Grimm's is about the rainbow, happy colours, creativity, and the imagination. Lovingly hand finished with non-toxic and water based stains (wood is unvarnished/unlacquered) by a specialist team in Germany, the puzzles, building sets, and toys are gorgeous, and also work as d'cor pieces for a beautiful home. There are no instructions, and you can do no wrong with a Grimm's toy. Just play, learn, and enjoy.

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.

Please note that this item is only available for mainland UK dispatch (excludes NI)
