Grimm's Building Set Weather + Weather Book
Grimm's Building Set Weather
With the Grimm's Building Set Weather we want to make an abstract topic comprehensible to children in a hands-on way. The beautiful shape and feel of the play pieces stimulates the child’s imagination and stories about the weather can be experienced and emulated: Let’s comfort Little Rabbit who has hidden under his bed out of fear of the thunderstorm! Through play fears can be processed and alleviated.
In form and shape, The Weather Building Set is perfectly matched to our four different Grimm's Large 12 piece Rainbows.
What's the weather like today?
All young builders, of both small and large worlds, can use these pieces to bring sunshine to their day, to conjure up lightning and thunder, or let snow and rain fall from the sky. A good storm drives all the clouds from the sky so that the sun can dry and warm everything once again.
Size: W = 5,4 cm - 21 cm; H = 6 cm - 13,8 cm
Grimm's Weather Book
We are very happy with our first ever Grimm's book, created in collaboration with the German illustrator Sarah Settgast. The 26-page board book uses 24 lovingly designed illustrations to tell stories about the weather and everything associated with it.
The 24 chosen themes are spelled out from our Grimm's Wooden Letters and frame each illustration in both English and German. Sarah Settgast illustrated almost 100 of our wooden toys and then included them into her illustrations using collage technique. There is a lot to discover in this book, because anyone who loves Grimm's Wooden Toys will happily search for the many toys made in our workshops that are hidden in the illustrations.
Even little ones will enjoy looking and telling stories together. The capital letters are wonderful for early learning and also for the introduction to foreign language learning in primary school or at home. And of course the board book is a delightful decoration for every season table. An experience for the whole family and for all the senses!
Sarah Settgast is a glasses designer, freelance illustrator, author and publisher. Born in the small Brandenburg town of Kyritz an der Knatter, she now lives in Berlin with her 7 and 8 year old children. Her style is influenced by the Waldorf tradition.
The bilingual Weather book is produced in the last board book factory in Germany at Sachsdruck Plauen on FCI-certified 400g paper with ecological toy colours and produced in accordance with the EU toy standard EN-71. It is bite and saliva proof and has rounded corners.
