Grimms Large Stepped Pyramid
Made by renowned German toy manufacturer, Grimm’s Spiel & Holz Design, the large stepped pyramid is an exciting way for children to discover the world of numbers and colours.
The finish of the blocks is raw and unvarnished, which makes it easier for children to build taller structures. The benefits of unvarnished blocks is that for younger children who are still developing their skills in engaging in constructive play varnished blocks are more slippery and leads to a lot of frustration in the process of building.
Another great aspect of the Grimm’s building block set is that these blocks are all mathematically proportional to each other. Their proportionality means that they are a handy resource for visualising mathematical concepts like number relationships and number representations.
