Grimm's Large Stepped Pyramid
The Grimm's Large Stepped Pyramid from Oskar's Wooden Ark is one of the most outstanding and open-ended toys Grimm's has to offer. Children can built magical palasts, castles, beautiful cities, towers and landscapes. They can create whatever their imagination is. This building set comes with 100 building blocks in bright colours in a nice wooden frame which can also be integrated as a part of the game.
The Grimm's Large Stepped Pyramid is made from precious lime wood and finished with a non-toxic water based color stain and non-toxic plant based oil finish. Size: frame 44,5 cm; single blocks 4 cm thickness, length up to 20cm.
In combination with Grimm's classic building materials like the Giant Building Blocks, the Wooden Marbles or the Building Set Cornerstones (new item 2018), the Large Stepped Pyramid reveals its true greatness. With their aid, the most diverse marble runs can arise.
We have added two 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.
