Why we love Grimm’s !
- Grimm’s Spiel & Holz have been making unique and distinctive natural wooden toys since 1978.
- Grimm’s natural toys are well renowned in Europe and used extensively in kindergartens and by speech and occupational therapists.
- Specially developed to promote sensory perception, Spiel & Holz toys are known for their wonderful textures and exceptional colour finishes.
- Inspired by the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, Spiel & Holz toys leave room for independent and open-ended play, allowing for the child’s own imaginative and creative life to be developed.
- Grimm’s natural wooden toys are created with the very best of care using European woods – alder, lime, maple and cherry.
- Spiel & Holz toys have no sharp edges or corners as all the toys are individually sanded by hand. Each toy is hand-finished with special non-toxic and water-based dyes providing distinctive colours and shades, and then treated with pure vegetable oil.
- Grimm’s have a strong environmental policy – using green electricity sources, and minimal packaging.
- Grimm’s toys are highly recommended as the basis for all good play – building and discovering spatial relationships through creativity and sensory experiences
While research on brain development is in its infancy, it is believed that play shapes the structural design of the brain. We know that secure attachments and stimulation are significant aspects of brain development; play provides active exploration that assists in building and strengthening brain pathways. Play creates a brain that has increased ‘flexibility and improved potential for learning later in life’ (Lester & Russell, 2008, p. 9).
Young children’s play allows them to explore, identify, negotiate, take risks and create meaning. The intellectual and cognitive benefits of playing have been well documented. Children who engage in quality play experiences are more likely to have well-developed memory skills, language development, and are able to regulate their behaviour, leading to enhanced school adjustment and academic learning (Bodrova & Leong, 2005).
