Grimm's Leonardo Sticks - 100 pieces
The ingenious inventor of this bridge construction from Grimm's Spiel & Holz is none other than Leonardo da Vinci!
By following the set up instructions, one can understand the brilliance of his design. The beauty of it is that you can start with one or two modules, which can then be extended step by step to become a large bridge or dome. The completed structure stands without glue or string and without a nail or screw. Setting up the bridge takes patience, a steady hand, and some skill. Working cooperatively with a friend or two is also helpful!
Of course, the rainbow-hued stacking and building sticks can be played with in many other ways as well. Try combining them with other Grimm's building blocks (the 2x2 size works best), creating stairs, houses and other buildings! It is possible to greatly extend the artistry and inventiveness of using your other building sets when you add Leonardo Sticks to your collection.
Leonardo Sticks store neatly in the included wooden box.
Age: 3 and up (8 and up for building bridges and domes).
Size: Bars are 2x18cm.
Material: Lime wood, non-toxic water based color stain.
Care: If you clean this product only use a damp cloth. Please do not submerge in water and do not use disinfectant or hot water.
GRIMM'S is a family driven and sustainable managed manufacturer since 1978, producing safe and high quality toys at the foot of the Swabian Alb in Germany. In product development and design, they are guided by Waldorf education and other reform pedagogical approaches such as Montessori. Their more minimalist approach in designing toys leaves plenty of room for the development of children’s fresh creativity. New fantastic worlds can be continuously created, keeping pace with children’s natural, healthy development.
Children and adults alike are drawn to the brilliant colors and beautiful unvarnished wood surfaces. The bright color glaze and plant based oils preserve the living surface of the wood in structure and feel. The result is a typically rough yet velvety wooden surface which contributes to greater play value, especially for building components.
