Seven friends in 7 bowls from Grimm's is a fabulous Waldorf toy for every family.
The components can be played with in so many creative ways. Children of all ages (1+) will imagine their own fun ways to use them, and caregivers can guide children in activities such as sorting and counting. Older children will love using leftover ribbons or fabrics to craft their own "clothes" for the dolls, or to include as part of a seasonal table display.
The dolls have simple forms to allow children to supply their own creativity to decide "who" the dolls are. The bright colors are delightful and will draw attention from whomever sees them. All parts are crafted by hand in Germany from sustainably harvested European wood. All edges are rounded for safety, then the natural waterbased stains are applied to the wood before they are finally finished with natural food-grade vegetable oil. All coatings are certified nontoxic and conform to stringent European (and American) toy standards, making them safe and suitable for children.

Grimm’s is a family driven and sustainable managed manufacturer since 1978, producing safe and high quality toys at the foot of the Swabian Alb in Germany. In product development and design, they are guided by Waldorf education and other reform pedagogical approaches such as Montessori. Their more minimalist approach in designing toys leaves plenty of room for the development of children’s fresh creativity. New fantastic worlds can be continuously created, keeping pace with children’s natural, healthy development.
Children and adults alike are drawn to the brilliant colors and beautiful unvarnished wood surfaces. The bright color glaze and plant based oils preserve the living surface of the wood in structure and feel. The result is a typically rough yet velvety wooden surface which contributes to greater play value, especially for building components.
