Grimms Wooden Waterwaves Medium - Stacking Toy
This Waterwave is a unique, clever and versatile Waldorf-inspired stacking and nesting puzzle/toy, hand carved from a single piece of wood. These nesting waves represent the element of Water. Made in Europe by German company Grimm's, this beautiful handcrafted wooden sculptural toy is suitable for all ages (from 1 year+). It is gently dyed with certified non toxic, water-based stains in varying shades of blue (no worrisome paints or varnishes are used). Each wavy piece can be played with in countless creative ways or in combination with other wooden building blocks your child already has. Especially fun when combined with any of the other Nature's "Elements" Stackers from Grimm's, which include the Large Rainbow ("Air"), Stone Caves ("Earth"), Flames ("Fire") and Little Flower.
Grimm's designs toys that help children develop their own creativity. Children will explore open-ended play with these 6 wonderful wave blocks, discovering many ways to use the pieces: as a bridge, hill, tunnel, fence, a house or cave for little gnomes or fairies in pretend play, walls, ceilings or see-saws for doll or action figures play, and more! The possibilities are boundless when kids are left to their own imagination. Young children will learn to differentiate the subtle varying blue color shades, will exercise fine motor skills to stack and nest the blocks, and develop their spatial abilities. This toy's ageless design and sturdy construction will last for generations -- truly an heirloom piece that will be cherished.
Comes minimally packaged in clear shrink wrap.

The Special Charisma
Wood is expressive, refined through the signs of time: it is so robust that it accompanies us a long time.
Wood is aesthetically beautiful: it tells the story of nature and life.
When its journey through the generations comes to an end, it is able to be recycled back into nature.
Wood has a warm and vivid sound. Instruments made of wood showcase its full sound spectrum.
Through the smell of wood, we feel its originality, clarity and sincerity.
Do you remember how wood tastes?
We do not need additives for wood, therefore it is ideal for teething rings, rattles and grasping toys for our small children. Its surface binds humidity because it is open and rough. On this dry surface bacteria cannot grow – they die. In addition, some types of wood have special properties which have germicidal effects.
Wood feels good in our hands with its warmth and distinct surface.
To enhance the vibrant expression of wood, we only varnish our wood with color and oil.
