Bigger than you think!

This block set is beautiful. The moment you set eyes on it you want to start building. I’m so impressed with the size of the blocks. They are much bigger than I thought they were. If you are considering a building set this should be a definite contender!

Grimm’s Building Set

Bought these for my daughter’s first birthday and am so happy with the quality and size of this building set. This is our first Grimm’s purchase and can say it was definitely worth the investment. Can’t wait to add more to her collection.

These are so special. Ordered them for our grandsons 1st Birthday. They arrived promptly and since opening his present has been keeping him and his parents entertained for hours.
We will definitely be adding to the collection in the future.

Grimms building set

This is just a beautiful vibrant quality piece to add to our playroom and they spend hours building we will extend on this set with another soon!


The blocks are a fantastic quality! Colours are beautiful, blocks are grippy and easy to stack. The variety of shapes and the size of the blocks themselves are great! Both my 7 month old and 4 year old love them.


The standard block set was our first big grimms purchase and the quality is absolutely amazing. I couldn’t believe it when it arrived, so much bigger than you think. Beautiful colour, smell and feel. I love it as much a my toddler. Amazing open ended play must have

Breanna Collins
Our First Set of Building Blocks!

I purchased this beautiful set of building blocks for my daughter. The quality is second to none. Beautiful colours and shapes.

So beautiful

These blocks are so gorgeous, confident they’ll get years of play with my two boys.

One of Our Favourite Purchases to Date

I put off investing in blocks for a while because we already had "blocks" from another commercial store that were never touched and I was struggling to justify buying more. One day I just decided I needed to take the plunge and I am so glad that I did. My girls (5 and 3) have played with these blocks every single day since they arrived. They are huge and sturdy and stack so perfectly both long ways and short ways. Their beautiful puzzle formation is the ultimate invitation to play, with kids being attracted to them either by their beautiful tangible forms or by the inbuilt desire of a child to destroy. Either way they pull these blocks out as the basis for their play every time and then expand on it using the rest of the Grimms, Grapat and Ostheimer ranges. If you are contemplating investing in these blocks and wondering if the price tag is worth it - stop hesitating and add to cart. The BEST blocks you will ever see, own and play with, no exceptions. Can't wait to add another set.

First blocks

This is the first block set I have purchased for my daughter. They are so much bigger than I was imagining. As her first set of blocks they have a nice selection of shapes and sizes and the colours are bright and fun but at the same time quite natural tones. A simple and quality choice as a first purchase for any age.
