Waldorf teachings recognise the characters of the four temperaments that make up everyone’s personality. How these temperaments balance and blend, influence how we feel, think and respond to life’s experiences in a unique and individual way. Do you recognise these qualities in yourself or your children?
The Melancholic temperament is represented in blue and characterised by spiralling inward into the depths, with edges and curves, and signifying endurance. It corresponds to the Earth element and has a compassionate if rather sad nature.
The Choleric temperament is red and is represented with jagged and sharp-edged pieces. Its impulsiveness is characteristic of the element of Fire, with an active and fiery nature.
The Phlegmatic temperament is represented in green, with its soft, curved, flowing shapes corresponding to its element Water. This temperament is steady and content, still like the surface of a pond.
The Sanguine temperament is represented in yellow and radiates cheerfulness and optimism. With Air as its element its characteristics shine from within, and dreamy in nature.

Grimm’s Toys are inspired by the Waldorf Steiner education movement which advocates learning through thoughtful, creative play at an unhurried pace. Toys play an important part of the learning experience and Waldorf toys are made with natural materials, beautiful and simplistic – the lack of details allow children to fill in the blanks with their imaginations. They can be used in multiple ways in creative play scenarios, rather than being prescriptive. Waldorf toys are wonderfully tactile and call on children to play with them.
Grimm’s educational wooden toys 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.
