Grimms Little Land Yachts
- With this small sailing boat there is a lot to discover when you explore the play worlds created by small world builders. After all, each little boat is just as suitable for off-road use in sand as it is on carpeted and wooden floors. Young explorers will also discover that the sailing fleet also floats wonderfully on water, which is due to the natural buoyancy of wood. Please note: wet wood should only dry at room temperature and not on the heater or in direct sunlight, as can cause cracks to occur.
Each yacht has a colour-coordinated sailor on board, who of course can also steer another boat from time to time, but who is always happy to return to his/her own boat. This colour matching and sorting is not always of equal interest to all small and big world builders. Therefore, as always with free play, the motto is: Anything goes, there are no rules!
Through their different colours and different types of wood, the Rainbow Friends reflect our wonderful diverse world as well as celebrating everyone’s uniqueness. Each one of our little hand-painted wooden figures has a different look and individual wood grain. These happy little wooden figures, made from different types of wood from trees indigenous to central Europe, are gender neutral. With no specific facial expression, they can be either sad or happy. With their simple appearance they spur on the child’s imagination instead of restricting it by offering too much detail.
Tip: Please secure the sail in its position by carefully tapping with a small hammer. Over time, this will expand and the sail can be removed again.

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 made from sustainably sourced Alder, Beech, Linden and Maple woods.
Lovingly handcrafted in Europe and inspired by the Waldorf and Montessori educational movements these wooden toys are created to give limitless play possibilities. They are perfect natural toys for open ended play, nurturing, inspiring and fostering creativity.
The unique and beautiful feature of all the toys is the 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 leaving a rich matte finish thus preserving the natural qualities and natural markings of each unique piece of wood.
