Grimms Building Set The Four Temperaments.
- We have translated the Four Temperaments into a language of form and color. The result is a colorful building set with 61 building blocks in free form.
- The individual building blocks are reminiscent of animals and various other creatures, and by combining different building elements, something new is always created that will stimulate and inspire the imagination.
- The predominant temperament determines the specific mood in which someone usually finds themselves. It influences how we feel and experience life, how we think, act or react.
- The Melancholic temperament has a compassionate and rather sad nature. It is BLUE, turning inward into the depths, with edges, curves and endurance - like its element, the Earth.
- The Choleric temperament has an active and fiery nature.It is RED, jagged and sometimes sharp-edged. Its impulsiveness belongs to the element of Fire.
The Phlegmatic temperament is steady and content. It is GREEN and still like the surface of a pond. Its curves and soft shapes correspond to its
- The Sanguine temperament radiates cheerfulness and optimism. It is YELLOW and shines from within, losing itself in the periphery or in the sky. Air is its element.

Grimm's Wooden Toys
Magic Forest Shop has proudly stocked the full range of the stunning Grimm's wooden toys in the UK since 2012. These splendid wooden toys are all sustainably sourced and handcrafted in Europe. Inspired by the Waldorf and Montessori educational movements these toys are perfect for open ended play, nurturing, inspiring and fostering creativity.
The unique and beautiful feature of all the toys is the natural wood markings and velvety-rough surface, perfect for stacking and balancing. This finish is acquired by the use of a non toxic water based colour stain, which penetrates into the wood fibres and leaves the natural qualities of the wood to shine through. The individual parts are dipped by hand into the stain and there is no varnish just a natural linseed oil finish to preserve the natural markings and positive properties of the wood.
All of Grimm's range of toys can be used independently or combined to give limitless playing possibilities. Come and discover the complete range at Magic Forest Shop the UK's best stockist of all things Grimm's.
