Glückskäfer Natural Grotto
This 5-piece natural wooden cave set is a gorgeous wooden toy that can be played with in so many different ways. It has been left unpainted, showing off the beauty of real wood. Stack the pieces one on top of the other, make houses for elves and little dolls, use as pens and coops on a toy farm, or as tunnels for a wooden train set. Ethically made, simple and hand-crafted, this Waldorf toy is stunning and can be used for unlimited, open-ended play possibilities and is ideal for playing with at home, nursery, school and in Montessori settings.
This toy measures 22cm x 17cm x 6cm. Made from solid wood and finished in water-based colour stain which retains the natural features of the wood. FSC certified European wood. Suitable for 2+ years
The ‘colourful shapes’ range by Glückskäfer are painted with water based colours and left unlacquered to bring out the original characteristics of the wood to ensure that the grain shows through. The surface of the blocks and pieces feel a little rough making them less slippery and easier to stack. This also ensures a sensory rich experience for the child. Glückskäfer toys are beautifully crafted following Waldorf and Montessori philosophies that encourage children to discover creative play independently.
Timeless toy designs made from natural materials and waterbased colour stains that allow the grain of the wood to show through increasing the feeling of connection to the natural world. Glückskäfer work with midwifes and child educators to help design their toys and have a strong focus on early child development. Materials are carefully chosen to be environmentally friendly and tactile. We love the beautiful colours and classic styles.
