Grimm’s Spiel & Holz Design from the Swabian Alp is one of the most outstanding German wooden toy manufacturers. As a family-owned company they develop, manufacture and sell wooden toys since 1978. Grimm’s intend is to design toys, whose simple and reduced design together with beautiful colouring, and inviting surface feel are well suited for all ages - products that are played with over and over again.
Committed to the pedagogical guidelines of Montessori and Waldorf pedagogy, Grimm’s offer open-ended toys made of sustainable sourced wood for both children and adults. Their natural toys are not only well renowned in Europe and used extensively in many kindergartens and by speech and occupational therapists, it improves fine motor skills and mathematical reasoning.
What is special about Grimm’s products is the optimal balance of innovative and minimal design which serves to inspire creativity rather than to limit it. As children grow, their needs change, and they find different ways to play with open-ended toys. This means that such toys will grow with children, accompanying them throughout childhood.
The variations in combining Grimm’s wooden toys are endless, opening up a wide field of counter balance to the digital and media world we live in. A healthy childhood must include real experiences made and built by hand and heart together with others – and in close contact with nature!
