Beautiful and versatile, this Earth theme stacking set appeals to children of different ages. Toddlers stack, sort and build while older children will discover many creative uses: as a cradle for dolls, as fence for animals, as a tunnel or bridge for vehicles, or to build amazing sculptures. Grimm's nested toys will always be integrated into fantasy play. They make sure to keep the playing possibilities as open as possible, so that creativity is not restricted, and can develop in new directions.
The stone cave represents "earth" in the Grimm's collection of four natural elements. Grimm's carves this set from a single piece of sustainably-harvested wood, then finishes each piece with certified non toxic water-based stains Each toy has a velvety-rough surface that preserves the properties of the wood.
Steeped in the rich European history of handcrafted woodworking and toy-making, Grimm's Spiel und Holz Design is nestled in small town Germany, where they lovingly create heirloom-quality, imaginative wooden playthings loved by children (and adults!) of all ages. This toy was made in their workshop in Bosnia. Grimm's thinks about the whole family when designing their beautiful toys, hoping to encourage adults to join in creative play and take time off to relax and be creative with their children.
The earth sculpture set is for ages 3+. It measures 4 x 2.25 x 1.5 inches. This is the smaller Earth set.
