About Grimm's Toys
Grimm's products are always unique, with unique traces of nature. With a few exceptions, everything is sanded and sawn by hand, this gives a different expression than pure "machinery-work" and ensures the uniqueness of each piece.
Children and adults alike are attracted by the brilliant colours and beautiful uncoated wood surfaces. The bright colour glaze and plant oils preserve the living surface of the wood in structure and feel. The result is a typically rough and yet velvety wooden surface.
Children's toys are not just about kids being busy, that is, having something to do. Above all, it is important to us that they receive toys that are appropriate to their age and development. The imagination of the children should be stimulated and this will help develop the creative potential that can be available to a person throughout their entire life. Beautiful, artistically crafted, quality toys, made of natural materials also promote a sense of beauty and an understanding of quality. We consider this important in our "disposable society."
Small and big builders of the world will find everything they need to create new worlds and games, so the same components may become a farm and later a hospital. On another occasion, a doll's house or part of a fantasy land might be created.
Grimm's is guided by Waldorf education and other alternative pedagogical approaches.
The wood comes exclusively from sustainably managed forests in Europe. Grimm's is an FSC certified company and are actively engaged in reforestation projects.
All products are tested regularly and comply with the European Toy Safety Standard (EN 71) and US standards.
Alder, lime, beech and maple woods are used.
