The original Grimms rainbow was released in 2003 and is now an iconic must-have toy for many Waldorf inspired parents. Based on this, Grimms wooden toys released this pastel rainbow in this 6 piece and a larger 12 piece rainbow, to further enhance their hand made range. All of the Grimms rainbows are perfect for Montessori educators and parents who follow the Steiner principles of open-ended play and toys.
The Grimms rainbows are made with one single piece of wood, and then each one is uniquely carved out and dyed with non-toxic water based colour. This means that no two wooden rainbows are the same! Each one is unique and will inspire imaginative play on many different levels. The possibilities of play with the wooden rainbows are endless from stacking, building, using it as a tunnel, a bridge, a bed for a doll, a farm enclosure - the list is endless! Add the Grimms balls to create fun ball run games, or the new Grimms blocks to build up beautiful towers.One of the things we love most about the Grimms wooden toys range is the finish on each item, which allows the wood grain to be seen and gives a texture which perfectly allows for building and stacking play, providing the perfect grippiness. This toy allows children to learn all about sorting, stacking, balancing, order and gives them great hand-eye co-ordination.
This Rainbow tunnel is really versatile and ideal already for small children! Toddlers stack, sort and build and as the children get older they will use it as a cradle for dolls, as fence for animals, like a tunnel or bridge for vehicles, as house for dwarfs and dollhouse dolls, build amazing sculptures... this rainbow will always be integrated in playing with a lot of fantasy.
