Little Wooden Boats
GRIMM'S are a sustainable wood manufacturer at the foot of the Swabian Alb that produces high quality and safe wooden toys. When developing products, they are guided by Waldorf education and other educational reform approaches, such as Montessori.
Each yacht has a colour-coordinated sailor on board, who can also steer another boat from time to time, but who is always happy to return to his/her own boat. This colour matching and sorting is a part of free play.
Through their different colours and different types of wood, the Rainbow Friends reflect our wonderful diverse world as well as celebrating everyone’s uniqueness. Each one of our little hand-painted wooden figures has a different look and individual wood grain. These happy wooden figures, made from different types of wood from trees indigenous to central Europe, are gender neutral. With no specific facial expression, they can be either sad or happy. With their simple appearance they spur on the child’s imagination instead of restricting it by offering too much detail.
Tip: Please secure the sail in its position by carefully tapping with a small hammer. Over time, this will expand and the sail can be removed again.
