A lovely toy, so glad we chose it!

I'd been tossing up which Grimms toy would be best to start with for my 8 month old, and eventually settled on the Friends in Bowls... and I'm so glad we did. My little girl loves them -- shaking them, sucking them, banging them together... they're great. I can see how they'll grow with her too -- soon she'll be stacking them, and placing the peg dolls inside the bowls herself, then eventually colour matching, counting and more. The toys are beautiful -- sturdy, beautifully made, lovely to touch, and so tactile. They also make a satisfying noise when you bang them together, which my bubba loves, haha! We keep them on our coffee table, and even adults sitting nearby want to pick them up and play with them. I was slightly concerned about size, because some reviews on Amazon suggested they were a choking hazard, but having seen them, I'm not worried at all, and very comfortably leave my baby to play with them while I'm doing chores etc. around the house. VERY happy with our purchase, and looking forward to growing our collection.

An instant favourite!

These charming rainbow friends have quickly become my 8 month old’s favourite toys. Received at Christmas time along with many other toys, these are the ones he consistently reaches for while playing. They’re the perfect size for his little hands to hold, and he thoroughly enjoys both chewing on them, and banging them against things to make sound. No issues so far with paint coming off, even with 7 little teeth chewing! I’ve also found my 9 year old enjoying them too! He likes to build block houses and always includes a friend in a bowl as ‘someone taking a bath’ in the house haha. I see these being enjoyed for many years to come!

Great for Busy Babies

My baby loves these little friends the most out of all her toys! They are great for her to grip and bang together to make noise. She also tries to put them back in their bowls which has been amazing as she won't sit still long to focus on other activities like this.

very beautiful toy

Very colorful tool, my 5 month son has already started to playing with it.

Can't go wrong with Grimm's

These are so cute, beautifully made as always and lovely bright colours that look great on the wood. I chose these over others for the diversity in colour and I'm very happy with them. As well as stacking and sorting, I can see the cups getting repurposed for all kinds of little collections as well.

Such a beautiful toy.

My granddaughter loves playing with this. Her parents love it to. The colours are vibrant and the pieces are very well finished. I am so pleased with it. There are so many possibilities for learning and play as she grows.I would really recommend it to others. Not cheap but worth every penny.

These wee rainbow folk in cups are beautiful and just the right size for little hands. They inspire many play ideas, that will evolve with the growing child.

Penelope Lewin
Amazing for all ages

Both of my kids love our Grimms Rainbow Friends in Bowls. My 8month old loves taking the friends in and out of their bowls and the friends are perfect size for little hands! My 2.5yr old also loves using the friends in his small world play, as well as stacking the bowls and using them for towers. The quality is amazing and it’s easy to see why Grimms items are so popular.
