With our arithmetic friends, children can discover the abstract world of numbers in a playful way. 

If acorns or blossoms from nature are collected and put together again and again in different ways, then new arithmetic problems arise effortlessly again and again. So arithmetic can be experienced with different senses when the hands can grasp what the eyes see. Every arithmetic friend is adorned with an arithmetic symbol of the 4 types of arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). The fifth arithmetic friend carries the equation sign and looks forward to many results that are made understandable in a playful way.

Each of our hand-painted wooden figurines is unique, the individual painting gives each doll a different expression. These cheerful little wooden people made of different and typically local woods from Central Europe are gender-neutral and can be just as sad as they are happy because they do not have a fixed facial expression.

Care

If you clean Grimm's wood products only use a damp cloth. Do NOT submerge in water. Do NOT use hot water or disinfectant. Grimm's stands for quality and long life. When making our toys, we carefully select the wood without defects. At each step, the quality of the wood is checked. But wood lives and responds to air changes. Wood is a natural product and not indestructible. Children should be advised and prompted to use caution with their special toys. If something breaks, repair the damage with wood glue.

Grimm's products are only available for sale to Canadian addresses.
