Grimm's Wooden Toys

Honeybee Toys stocks the entire range of Grimm's Wooden Toys in Australia from the classic Grimm's rainbow to the traditional Grimm's birthday rings, and everything in between.  You will find our range online and in our Melbourne store in Malvern.  We were the first store in Australia to stock Grimm's nearly 20 years ago.  We love Grimm's toys for leading the way in natural and sustainable wooden toys and creative, open-ended play. They are a family owned company which develops  wooden toys based on the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner and Maria Montessori.

Grimm’s Spiel & Holz Design from the Swabian Alps in southern Germany is one of Europe's premier makers of wooden toys. As a family-owned company, they have developed and sold their products since 1978. Honeybee Toys were the first store in Australia to stock Grimm's wooden toys in Australia from the classic Grimm's rainbow to the traditional Grimm's birthday rings, and everything in between.

Grimm’s goal is to design toys whose simple and elegant designs, combined with beautiful bright colours inviting textures and produced with natural oils and stains, are well suited for children of all ages.

The wooden toys are made from sustainable materials and offer an alternative to the plastic playthings that flood the market, they have a soft tactile finish, because the company uses a colour glaze that penetrates the wood rather than leaving a glossy protective film on top.

The natural variations that occur in wood are what give each individual  toy its own character. Discover the markings that make your Grimm's toy Simply Unique!

Made with Love

Grimm’s are a family owned and sustainably managed manufacturer at the foot of the Swabian Alb, which produces beautiful things made of wood, as well as natural, high quality and safe wooden toys made to officially certified standards. Grimm’s design durable wooden toys whose minimal design leaves much room for the development of the child’s creativity. In this way, new fantastic play worlds emerge, keeping pace with the child’s development. In product development, Grimm’s are guided by the principles of Waldorf education and other educational approaches, such as Montessori.

SAFE & NATURAL

Grimm’s design durable toys whose simple and minimalist shapes, along with beautiful colouring are suitable for all ages – products that inspire play over and over again.

All Grimm’s products are tested regularly and comply with the European Toy Safety Standard (EN 71) and US standards.

GRIMM’S COLOURS

Children and adults alike are attracted by the brilliant colours and beautiful uncoated wood surfaces. The bright colour glaze and plant oils preserve the living surface of the wood. The result is a typically rough and yet velvety wooden surface, which contributes to a greater play value, especially for building material, because the individual pieces do not slip off so easily. Grimm’s use glazing colours and vegetable oil. Colours are water-based, non-toxic and saliva-fast. Of course, all colours and oils are certified according to the European toy safety standard (EN 71).

grimm's sustainable toys

SUSTAINABLE

For Grimm’s, sustainable design means a design that is untouched by short-lived trends and that, through its reduction to the essentials, leaves room for the development of one’s own creativity and imagination. Thus, the same toy can become a faithful companion over many years, because it can be played with again and again, since it keeps up with the child’s development.

 

 

 

grimm's made by nature

Grimm’s manufacture durable toys and our raw material wood is so robust that it can stay with us for a long time. If something breaks, it can be repaired with glue (GRIMM’s Repair Kit). And wood fits into the natural cycle without any problems.

Grimm’s wood comes exclusively from sustainably managed forests in Europe. Grimm’s are an FSC certified company and are actively engaged in reforestation projects.
