Grimm's Small Earth
This small but perfectly formed wooden angular block set consists of of 5 angular arched pieces, each a different cool earthy shade. Split them up and make fairy doors, tunnels for cars and pens for farm animals; or balance them on top of one another to make colourful constructions. Young children will enjoy stacking, sorting and building with this toy for years to come, before being enjoyed again by the next generation. Steiner educators will love the way that this natural toy can be used in a myriad of ways to learn and play.
The pieces have been hand-carved from a single piece of limewood then naturally stained using non-toxic, water-based colour. This natural finish allows the grain of the wood to shine through and ensures that these blocks are safe for young children.
This set is 11.5cm long and recommended from 3 years.

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.
