Grimm's Annual Celebration Ring
This rainbow coloured celebration ring is a lovely way to chart the calendar year with your family. Each of the 12 segments represents a month of the year and has five slots - one for the month and four for the weeks. As time marches on, move a candle or marble around the ring, or add a new one to it. You can also place a decorative figure or larger candle in the central bowl. Please note that the marbles and the circular disc shown in pictures 2 and 3 are not included but can be purchased separately. The Grimm's annual ring is 38cm across and is made with FSC limewood and finished with non-toxic, water-based colour stain. Candles measuring 1.4cm in diameter will fit the candle holders required for this ring.
Important: This is not a toy. Always supervise children around candles.
Celebrate birthdays, family occasions, Christmas and other religious and cultural events with these fabulous celebration rings and spirals by Grimm’s. Slot in candles and colourful numbers, letters and characters into the holes that are relevant to the special event and can be used as a discussion point for your family. For each birthday, add a candle and a new personalised ornament and, as the years pass and the slots become filled with candles, move the ornaments into the centre. You needn’t hide your Grimm’s celebration ring away, only bringing it out for parties: these traditional decorations can also be used throughout the year as a centre piece on your dinner table. Twelve-hole rings can be used to mark each passing month, and seven-hole rings can be used to count down to the weekend.
Grimm’s celebration rings are inspired by the Waldorf Steiner education movement which advocates thoughtful, creative at an unhurried pace. Waldorf educational products are beautiful, simplistic and made with natural materials, allowing children to fill in the blanks with their imaginations.
Grimm’s products are made in Europe from alder, lime, beech and maple, all sourced from sustainably managed European forests. They are made in handpicked workshops across Europe and coated with natural colours and oils by the Grimm’s team in Germany. All of the paints and lacquer used to finish your lovingly made Grimm’s toy are harmless and enhance the natural beauty of the wood, allowing the grain to shine through.
