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.
The twelve friends can represent the twelve months of a year and are therefore a wonderful addition to our Annual Ring or our Small Annual Ring / Birthday Ring. The Seven Friends in Cups can also be used to represent the seven days of a week.
Beyond this, they are a wonderful addition to our Large Rainbow, not just for sorting by colour but also for imaginative play - when they want to live in a magical way in the magical world of the Large Rainbows!
The world of Large Rainbows (classic rainbow colours, pastel, natural, monochrome) is at the heart of free play. This colourful mixture of the most diverse and perfectly complementary building materials opens up a limitless range of different play options that adapt to the increasing capabilities of the child.

Note about Grimm's Wooden Toys: Grimm's are made from natural materials and as such, will have variations in markings. The non-toxic stains show the beautiful characteristics underneath. These variations in wood grain, knots, texture, or stripes are a sign of their high quality natural materials, and are not a defect.
