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!

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 :)

So inviting for toddlers

These blocks are beautiful and they smell so good!

I’m glad I chose the giant set to start with. My 2.5yo is able to stack 3 or 4 pieces and, tada! She has built a tower in just a few moments. I think this has made the set so engaging and inviting for her whereas a smaller set might not have captured her attention straight away.

Highly recommend.

Giant building blocks - perfect for first time builders

These blocks are beautifully crafted and the wood grain is stunning. These are great as a first blocks set - they are big so little hands can stack them easily. A great addition to any other block set <3

Best blocks

I was hesitant to buy these blocks because there are not many for the price but i am so glad I did. We use them with all our other grimms items to make towers, ball runs and houses. Both my 9 month old and 2.5yr old loves them.

Beautiful toy!!!

My son loves it!
