All Grimm's toys are produced and hand painted in small factories within Germany and Bosnia. Grimm's develops toys that help children discover their own creativity through simple and reduced shapes that leave room for independent exploration. Many of Grimm's toys integrate Waldorf and Montessori aspects in their design. Grimm's are one of Europe's most beloved companies for natural toys.
Grimm's Toys carefully selects the wood without defects. At each step, the quality of the wood is checked. Since wood lives and responds to air changes and is a natural product and not indestructible, one can not rule out that something could break. If something breaks, you can repair the piece with wood glue.
If you want to remove dirt from Grimm's products, simply wipe with a damp cloth and some soapy water (if necessary). When drying, please do not place on the heater, otherwise cracks may occur in the wood, but allow to dry at room temperature. Never clean with disinfectant, hot water or similar!
Grimm's is a family owned and sustainably managed manufacturer, which produces high quality and safe wooden toys made to officially certified standards. All their products are tested regularly and comply with the European Toy Safety Standard (EN 71) and US standards.
Grimm's products always have unique traces of nature. With a few exceptions, everything is sanded and cut by hand. The company uses FSC certified alder, lime, beech and maple wood. Woodworking is outsourced to small independent companies in Europe. New products are developed, and products are oiled, dipped in colour, assembled, quality checked, packaged and shipped all over the world.
Because wood is a natural material it always has various markings that show up in our products. The unique variations are proof of quality, not defects. For example, dark spots are caused by mineral deposits. This means that if the tree had grown further, a branch would have developed at this point. Black stripes are also something completely natural. This is the pith tube or "heart of the tree". It differs from the surrounding wood by the darker colour and structure. When working on the wood, it can become completely or partially visible. This feature is part of the natural appearance of the wood. Therefore, these are not defects but quality features of a natural product and as such are desired and welcomed by us.
PAINTED BY HAND
All pieces are hand-painted and decorated in the most loving detail. In assembly and packaging, Grimm's work in part with workshops for adults with special needs in Germany.
The bright colour glaze and plant oils preserve the living surface of the wood in structure and feel. The result is a rough and yet velvety wooden surface, which contributes to greater play value because the individual pieces do not slip off so easily. Grimm's Toys use glazing colours and vegetable oil for their products. Their colours are water-based, non-toxic and saliva-fast. Of course, all colours and oils are certified according to the European toy safety standard (EN 71).
