Sarah Settgast illustrated almost 100 of our wooden toys and then included them into her illustrations using collage technique. There is a lot to discover in this book, because anyone who loves GRIMM’s toys will happily search for the many toys made in our workshops that are hidden in the illustrations.

Even little ones will enjoy looking and telling stories together. The capital letters are wonderful for early learning and also for the introduction to foreign language learning in primary school or at home. And of course the board book is a delightful decoration for every season table. An experience for the whole family and for all the senses!

Sarah Settgast is a glasses designer, freelance illustrator, author and publisher. Born in the small Brandenburg town of Kyritz an der Knatter, she now lives in Berlin with her 7 and 8 year old children. Her style is influenced by the Waldorf tradition. So far 3 children‘s books have been published in German by the Deutsche Pappebuch Gesellschaft.

The bilingual Weather book is produced in the last board book factory in Germany at Sachsdruck Plauen on FCI-certified 400g paper with ecological toy colours and produced in accordance with the EU toy standard EN-71. It is bite and saliva proof and has rounded corners.

Size: 17x17 cm

Grimm`s Made By Nature

We love wood because it is a natural material so it always has various markings that show up in our products, making each one unique.
Grimm’s toys are always one a kind, carrying unique marks made by nature. Wood grain has changing structures and colours which serve as proof of its natural origins. The unique variations are proof of quality, not defects. Discover the markings that make your Grimm’s toy Simply Unique!

Every piece of wood has its own appearance, its own character and its own vitality. Its natural characteristics, and unique markings are therefore always to be considered. For example, dark spots on the rainbow are caused by mineral deposits. This means that if the tree had grown further, a branch would have developed at this point.

Black stripes are also something completely natural. This is the so-called pith tube or "heart of the tree". It differs from the surrounding wood by the darker colour and structure. When working on the wood, it can become completely or partially visible. This feature is part of the natural appearance of the wood. Therefore, these are not defects for us, but quality features of a natural product and as such are desired and welcome by us. We love this uniqueness of wood!

The Special Charisma
Wood is expressive, refined through the signs of time: it is so robust that it accompanies us a long time.
Wood is aesthetically beautiful: it tells the story of nature and life.
When its journey through the generations comes to an end, it is able to be recycled back into nature.

The Sound
Wood has a warm and vivid sound. Instruments made of wood showcase its full sound spectrum.

The Smell
Through the smell of wood, we feel its originality, clarity and sincerity.

The Taste
Do you remember how wood tastes?
We do not need additives for wood, therefore it is ideal for teething rings, rattles and grasping toys for our small children. Its surface binds humidity because it is open and rough. On this dry surface bacteria cannot grow – they die. In addition, some types of wood have special properties which have germicidal effects.

The Feel
Wood feels good in our hands with its warmth and distinct surface.

To enhance the vibrant expression of wood, we only varnish our wood with colour and oil.

Grimm`s FAQ:

What is the finish or coating on the blocks? An outstanding and unique characteristic of all our building blocks is the velvety surface which arises because we use colour glaze that penetrates into the wood, leaving a matte finish rather than a glossy one. The individual pieces are dipped by hand into the stain and we intentionally do not put a final protective coating on it to preserve the positive characteristics of the wood. Our way of making blocks guarantees that they stack more easily with greater play possibilities. Children feel and experience the wood fibres and structure while playing. 

1. It may sporadically happen with new products that initially some excess colour pigments will get released which results in colour transfer. We recommend wiping the transferred surface with a wet, lint-free cloth to remove colour pigments. 

2. Our colours are non-toxic, water based stains that are absolutely harmless and tested in-depth for colour fastness in contact with saliva.  This test uses a liquid comparable to standard human saliva.  However, some people’s saliva do vary from the “standard”, so some colour may transfer under those conditions, but the stains are harmless.

Please know that you are holding a natural product in your hands which was enriched with loving care in manual work and colour technique.  To enjoy playing with the blocks for a long time to come, please review our care label.

Should I be concerned when my child is mouthing one of your products?
All colours and oils we use are certified in accordance with the EN 71 and CPSIA/ASTM 963 standards.
They are therefore recommended for use on children’s toys and harmless to the health of your child or baby.

Why does my new product have a strong smell?
We oil our nature wood products with a mix of different nature oils. The stronger smell is typical for natural linseed oil which is completely harmless, and it will decrease over time. For care simply use soapy water with a damp cloth for cleaning. Dry immediately. Please do not submerge in water and do not use disinfectant or hot water.

How can I wash the dolls?
Please clean by hand washing only. Please be gentle and careful when washing the face. The colours of the face are water-resistant, but they can fade.
