Grimm’s “Little Flower” Wooden Puzzle Stacker – Large Stacking Nesting Floral Sculptural Blocks

The “Little Flower” Stacker from Grimm’s Spiel und Holz Design is a wooden stacking and nesting puzzle and building set, hand carved from a single piece of alder hardwood. This nesting Blossom is designed in the same style (and relative size) as Grimm’s Large Elements Stackers.

Made in Germany and gently dyed with non-toxic, water based dyes in beautiful shades of blue & green at the base, moving to mauve and deep pink at the top of the flower. Each piece can be used as a bridge, tunnel, fence, cave or even furniture for little gnomes or fairies. It can be stacked and nested together as a puzzle. The Flower is also a perfect addition to most wooden blocks your child may already have, and can be combined with the 4 Elements — Water, Fire, Air and Earth — Grimm’s Large Elements Stacker sets.

This is an heirloom piece that will be cherished. Measures approximately 9″ Tall when stacked. Each piece is 2.25″ Deep — the same depth as the Large Grimm’s Elements Stackers (available separately in 4 styles: Rainbow, WaterWaves, Caves, and Fire) — making the Little Flower a natural complement to the Grimm’s Large Elements as an expanded building set.

Children will enjoy creative free play with these 9 wonderful nesting blocks using them for caves, hills, see-saws and more. Mom can also use the Flower stacker as a centerpiece for a seasonal table or a tactile sculpture on the coffee table. This stacker’s ageless design and sturdy construction will last for generations — truly an heirloom piece that will be cherished. Each Set is minimally packaged in clear shrink wrap.

They are uniquely finished using water-based dyes and natural oils. Will last a lifetime of fun! Also makes for a wonderful room decor.

BENEFITS

Stacking and nesting toys like the Large Rainbow Stacker by Grimm’s help develop fine motor skills, which play an important role in preparing kids to be self-sufficient. Such skills are critical in children’s ability to use spoons to eat, to write legibly with a pencil, to turn pages in a book, to dress, or to brush their teeth. Stacking also helps stimulate reasoning skills (bigger arc stack on top of smaller arc), which are essential in problem solving activities.

This children’s educational wooden toy has earned the Spiel Gut distinction — a quality mark awarded by the German Design Association’s Committee of Games and Toys. Such an award recognizes high quality children’s toys that are also ecologically sensible.
