Grimm's Small Stepped Pyramid
The Grimm's Small 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. Because of its size it is also perfect for playing on the table, where different marble games can be played.
The Grimm's Small 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 22,5 cm; single blocks 2cm thickness, length up to 10cm.
In combination with Grimm's classic building materials like the Giant Building Blocks, the Wooden Marbles, the Building Set Cornerstones (new item 2018) or the Building Boards (new item 2018) the Small Stepped Pyramid reveals its true greatness. With their aid, the most diverse marble runs can arise.
We have added one example (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 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.
