Perfect for classic open-ended play, the Rainbow Semi Cirlces comes with 11 birch pieces in a rainbow of colors and varying sizes. Use them as a creative puzzle to be played on the floor, or in combination with our the 12 piece rainbow or other building blocks one can build inventive and flexible dollhouses.

Grimm's Handcrafted Wooden Toys: With simple designs and stunning colors, these long-lasting toys not only please the senses but also help children to develop their own creativity. Each piece is handmade in Germany from solid wood and hand finished with a nontoxic, lead-free water-based stain.

Please note: as Grimm's uses non-lacquered wood, some paint transfer can occur during play. This is considered normal. Non-lacquered wood has a lovely texture - the rough texture of the stained wood is not only an important tactile sensory experience for children, but those rough surfaces makes it possible to build in many more different ways, because the parts do not slide down so easily as the wood surface is still natural and not covered with a layer of bright enamel; however if you are concerned about paint transfer we suggest you purchase another item that is lacquered to be on the safe side.

Age: 1+
L = 38cm
Materials: birch ply wood, non-toxic water based color stain/non-toxic plant based oil finish.
