Speed off with this bright orange Grimm's Large Convertible Car - a fun wooden car with two colourful Rainbow Friends as a driver and passenger. Pop the peg dolls into the open-top car, swap them around and go for a drive across the kitchen floor. This limewood car has free-spinning wheels, left natural to show off the grain of the wood with cool blue bodywork, stained with non-toxic water based colour. This chunky wooden car is a great size for small hands to grasp and push across the floor. Push forward, pull back, take the peg dolls in and out - playing with this wooden toy car will hone toddlers' motor skills. Team up with other vehicles for family races across the floor. This handmade classic toy has been crafted by master toy makers in Germany and is a beautiful children's toy, built to last for future generations.
Made from Alder and Maple wood and hand painted with non toxic paints. Each set of dolls is unique and full of natural beauty. Steiner educators will love how these wooden dolls with their simplistic features can be used in a myriad of ways of creative, natural play.
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.
