Grimm's Giant Building Blocks

Available soon

These large building blocks are also ideal for playing outside since structures can be stable on uneven surfaces as well. The arches are great for building different houses and play worlds. 19 pieces. Materials: lime wood, non-toxic plant based oil finish. Size: H = 7cm, L = 7-21cm.

In combination with Grimm's classic building materials like the Wooden Marbles, the small and large stepped pyramid, the Building Boards (new item 2018) or the Building Set Cornerstones (new Item 2018), the Giant Building Blocks, reveal their true greatness. With their aid, the most diverse marble runs can arise.

We have added three examples (see photos) of how to built your own marble run made of Grimm's Wooden Toys. It can take some experimenting until the step height matches the ball size and the optimal distance between the cornerstones is found. Tricky building and construction for adults and playing fun even for the little ones. If everyone works together, great things can happen.

(1) Marble Run Staircase: In combination with the Large Stepped Pyramid, the Giant Building Blocks and the Building Set Cornerstones this marble run staircase was created for Wooden Balls.⠀

(2) Marble Run Bridge: This daring bridge construction for Small Wooden Marbles is a combination of the Pastel Buidling Boards the Small Stepped Pyramid, the Building Blocks - Tree Slices, the Giant Building Blocks and the Building Set Cornerstones.

(3) Marble Run Spiral: In combination with the Large Stepped Pyramid, the Giant Building Blocks and the Building Set Cornerstones was created for Wooden Marbles.

We can't wait to see all the inventors and architects out there!

Beautiful set

So looking forward to gifting these to my son at Christmas. We have tried a non Grimm’s set with smaller pieces and my son has found them very hard to stack and manipulate. These are such a great size for little hands.


These are our first set of Grimm's building blocks after much research (and anticipation at restock!) and they surpass all expectations. They are splendid in size and quality, stack brilliantly, and a fun addition that seamlessly fits in to other toys and play scenarios for everyone. They really are something special and different to what is out there, and definitely a keepsake item.

Such a hit for my almost 1 year old

Bought them for my little ones birthday coming up in October and he has spotted them and had already been trying to play with them early so I took them out and wow he loves them! We have spent the last two days playing with them every morning and afternoon! And they are so cool to build his motor skills and introduce him to ball runs! We are so in love with this set! He has also incorporated the large sunset rainbow and house sticker and little red Ute in play with them even making tracks.Definitely a staple item for every home! Thank you so much!

Amazing product

Brought for our sons 1st birthday. This is our first block set and I absolutely love it nice and big for them to grasp and the natural wood looks lovely.


Another amazing Grimm’s product. Fabulous for my 2yo who likes to stack them up and knock them down. My 9yo girls use them in conjunction with other Grimm’s products to make ball runs, castles and elaborate buildings. They are a great starting option for toddlers.

We just love these

Another fantastic Grimms product that has added yet another element to our building !! These beautiful blocks are amazingly solid and perfect for stacking. My girls (3 and 5) instinctively got the building boards out immediately to use with these blocks and have also enjoyed using them in contamination with our rainbows which has really mixed up their play and challenged their building skills. Highly recommend these for all ages! Can't wait to get stuck into some serious ball runs too!

Great for little ones learning to stack towers

Wow these are huge! They are a solid weight and easy to stack. My 17 month old has started to stack some blocks into towers, which he hadn't really been interested in previously. I think the size made big difference. Beautiful finish as always and so smooth to hold. The natural grain really shows :)
