Grimm's Building Set Cornerstone
Ramp up the skill level with this 18-piece complex wooden building block set. Playing with these wooden building blocks can be tricky, so they're a great learning toy if you want to develop your child's spatial awareness and problem solving abilities, as well as bringing on fine motor control. Pair them up to make squares, build unique towers and create unique patterns when laid out flat. Our favourite thing to do with the cornerstone is designing colourful marble runs - use them to change the direction of flow by 90 degrees, and add in regular blocks to make a longer run. They also make wonderfully whacky place scenes for little gnomes and peg people to explore too. The colourful wooden blocks come in a frame which is handy for storing them in but can be used for playing inside or discarded for free-play, integrating other blocks into the mix for greater play possibilities.
The blocks are not varnished, ensuring they will not easily slip off one another when building imaginative constructions. Steiner educators will love this multi-purpose educational toy as it can be used for natural play in a myriad of ways - build houses and toppling towers, use to make patterns or as counting aids and for learning the names of different shapes, or even as ingredients in a play kitchen.
The wooden blocks come in a frame which is handy for storage and travelling with. They are ethically made from sustainably sourced beech wood and stained with water-based colour which allows the grain to show through. The frame measures 15cm x 15cm x 5cm.
Warning: Not suitable for under 3 years. This set is suitable from age 3+.
Sensory play: tripod grip, fine motor skills, spatial thinking.
Schematic play: This toy will appeal to children demonstrating the positioning schema - balancing, sorting and stacking toys and objects in a particular order or place.
Please note: due to distribution restrictions we cannot send Grimm's toys to addresses outside of the UK and Ireland.
Featuring toys to shake, build or pull along, Babi Pur’s range of Grimm’s toys has something for every child to fall in love with. The quality of these toys is superb and their appeal is timeless – we’re sure that they will be treasured not only by your children but by your grandchildren too.
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.
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-inspired toys are wonderfully tactile and call on children to play with them.
