These wonderful sets of stacking pebbles by Grimm's, Spiel and Holz Design are 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.
Available in three sets - 'Moss', 'Fire' and 'River', each set contains 4 smooth wooden pebbles stained with water based colour which allows the true beauty of the texture and grain of the wood through for a wonderful tactile and sensory experience.
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.
