Most parent advocates of pretend play are familiar with the colorful Waldorf inspired rainbow blocks from Grimm’s Spiel & Holz. However, what you may not know is that this awesome design company also makes huge, life-sized sets of their popular rainbow blocks. These are not your ordinary rainbow blocks, but instead are blocks so large that your young toddler can actually build climb-through tunnels and other larger than life structures with them. These huge colorful blocks teach young children about sorting, stacking, colors and much more, stimulating skills surrounding coordination and fine motor skills. The pretty blocks are large enough to use as cradle for dolls, a fence for animals, or a tunnel or bridge for vehicles, and so much more.
Even bigger than the large stacking rainbow is the EXTRA large rainbow. This set, while pricey, is amazingly big. The set is so large young children can use the curved pieces as creative furniture or climbing structures. Bonus – the EXTRA large set is like getting several Waldorf rocker boards in one set. Both larger sets of rainbow blocks are handmade in Germany, cut from a single, solid piece of linden wood and beautifully colored with rich, vibrant, certified non-toxic, child-safe water based stains. Both sets are incredibly versatile and encourage hours of open-ended play.
