What Grimms Toys to Buy



Grimms have over 500 toys in their catalogue which is a pretty insane number of toys and far more than any child needs in their playroom. Each one of them is beautifully designed and made to the highest standards. And they are all designed to be beautiful open-ended toys that will be cherished for generations.

So with that many toys to choose from where do you start? How do you know which ones to buy and which ones to leave on the shelves? Of course, that depends on personal taste and the age and likes and dislikes of your child. But here are five of our favourites and why these might be the Grimms toys to buy.

Grimms Rainbow or Tunnel Toy

The Grimms rainbow has become an iconic toy. It is undoubtedly a beautiful toy and part of the beauty is that it can be used in so many ways. If you are new to Grimms this is a great place to start.

The rainbow will be used by children in ways you would never have thought of. But one of our favourite things to do it to use them to make gorgeous sculptures. Just have a look online and you will see lots of build challenges that are great for doing together with your kids and also for older children.

Rainbow Friends

The gorgeous wooden friends are a perfect toy for little ones. They have a wonderfully tactile feel and they are made from different woods and hand-painted so that each one is a little different.

These can be used as all sorts of characters in imaginative play from farmers to super heroes. As well as being great for learning colours and learning to count.

Wooden Balls

These come in a set of six and seem like such a simple toy but again seem to inspire so much in the way of imaginative and creative play. They are great for encouraging both fine and gross motor skills.

We love building ball runs with the rainbows, blocks, semi-circles and other toys as well as playing marble games with them and practising our aim.

Semi Circles and or the Building Boards

Not much on their own but if your child loves the rainbow these are a great add on that will really ramp up the possibilities. And they are great for creating ball runs or areas for small world play.

Building Blocks

There are a lot of different options when it comes to building block sets from Grimms in bright rainbow colours, natural wood or monochrome.

Building blocks should be a part of any playroom. Not only do they offer so many opportunities for play, from a very young age, but they are also a great toy for learning. Playing with blocks teaches everything from cause and effect to counting. It requires logical thinking and problem solving to build things, and blocks can be used creatively to represent anything from a sheep to a tree.

Amazing Selection of Grimms Toys

Of course, this is only a tiny selection of the toys available and there are lots of others that are incredibly popular including the stacking toys, the nesting bowls and boxes, the cars and other vehicles, and the elements. As well as some more unusual but beautiful toys such as the stacking boat and motor home.
