These wooden stacking shapes are perfect for imaginative play, stacking, sorting, not to mention absolutely beautiful to look at! You'll no doubt find yourself creating sculptural art with them while baby sleeps (a perfectly legitimate form of active meditation for busy mamas)!
For those who are tired of rainbow colours, this toy is made in deep natural colours: terracotta, clay, olive, beige, burgundy, pink, forest and deep blue. A gorgeous functional art piece for any nursery or bedroom.
9 different shapes
19 x 28cm
Lime wood, dyed with non-toxic watercolours
Hand made in Russia with love
Raduga Grez (which translates to "Rainbow Dreams") makes beautiful toys, ethically handcrafted in Russia from a third-generation toymaker family using traditional water-based stains on all natural lime wood.
Each piece has a smooth feel and matte finish – the wood grain shows through, making each toy unique.
A few special words from us
Open ended toys, such as the Raduga Grez Shapes Building Blocks, present infinite possibilities to children. They are great exploratory tools that the child can use for imagination and creativity. This wooden toy is ideal for ages 9 months + when used under supervision.
Age: 9 months +
Benefit: Spatial Awareness, Cause & Effect & Motor Skills
Activity: Construct an abstract sculpture with the pieces as you describe the position of each shape. "The circle is on the arch. The arch is under the circle. The zigzag is next to the arch...". This activity helps a baby learn about spatial relationships — "under," "on," and "around" — a well as shapes, and cause and effect when they knock the structures down! Even though at 9 months they are not quite ready to stack objects, they should really enjoy knocking them down.
