An inverted form of the original Grimm's Rainbow - with a beautiful colour scheme that mimics the setting sun sinking down in the evening sky. This stunning variation on the Grimm's 12 piece rainbow will be beloved just like it's older sister! It can be used in so many ways for children of all ages: stacking, creating forms, building ball runs (when teamed with Grimm's balls), colour matching, building houses for dolls and toys, bridges and tunnels for cars - anything your child can imagine! One of the staples of the playroom for imaginary play and open-ended toys, it will also look gorgeous in your child's room when packed away on their shelf.
The Grimm's large rainbows are made from a single piece of wood. Each tree tapers upwards and so the 12-piece rainbows are made from the lower trunk and the 10- and 6-piece rainbows from the upper part. Each rainbow is cut out by hand from a single block of wood - arch for arch. When used as a stacking toy their handmade nature makes the child think carefully about how to put them back together, adding an extra puzzle element to play.
Due to their handmade nature each rainbow is unique and will have slightly different wood grains, making them all the more beautiful and special.
Dimensions: 30 x 7 x 15 cm (please note this is 2 pieces smaller than the large / original rainbow)
Age group: 3 and above

- Specially developed to promote sensory perception, Spiel & Holz toys are known for their wonderful textures and exceptional colour finishes.
- Inspired by the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, Spiel & Holz toys leave room for independent and open-ended play, allowing for the child’s own imaginative and creative life to be developed.
