GRIMM'S Counting with Colours
Learning to count, complete sums, memorise prime numbers and master the times tables is made easy with this incredible wooden maths toy. This 200-piece block set is an essential tool for home educators but will be a hit with any parent looking for educational toys. The 200 wooden blocks sit in a tray in two layers - the tray is handy for storage and for containing the blocks when learning. The blocks can be used in a wide variety of ways - from the first attempts at learning numbers to making out simple sums and more. This is a learning toy that will be useful to children throughout their years at school - details are included to demonstrate ideas for learning. The beautiful rainbow blocks are also great for building with and making colourful patterns and play scenes.
Children will love to learn, play and build with these beautiful blocks which come in a range of 15 stunning colours. The blocks are made with lime wood and have been stained with water-based colour, allowing the natural grain of the wood to shine through. Steiner educators will love this multi-purpose educational toy as it can be used for natural play and learning in a myriad of ways.
This set is suitable from age 3. The storage tray measures 32cm x 32cm. Blocks measure 3cm x 3cm.

A unique characteristic of Grimms wooden toys is the velvety surface resulting from the use of colour glaze that penetrates into the wood, leaving a matte finish rather than a glossy one. The individual pieces are dipped by hand into the stain and Grimms intentionally do not put a final protective coating on it to preserve the positive characteristics of the wood. This method guarantees that toys stack more easily with greater play possibilities, and children feel and experience the wood fibres and structure while playing.
From time to time colour transfer will result in new products that carry some excess colour pigments. Grimms recommend wiping the transferred surface with a wet, lint-free cloth to remove colour pigments.
Grimms colours are non-toxic, water based stains that are absolutely harmless and tested in-depth for colour fastness in contact with saliva. This test uses a liquid comparable to standard human saliva. However, some people’s saliva does vary from the “standard”, so some colour may transfer under those conditions, but the stains are harmless.
