We’ve long been fans of German company Grimms‘ traditional toys and particularly their wonderful wooden rainbows. But what to do if you’re not a colour lover? Well, fear not, monochrome mamas, because there’s now a beautiful black and white version available. Guaranteed to give good shelfie, the rainbow is made from basewood and coloured with non-toxic, water-based stain.
With twelve pieces, it’s such a versatile toy – stack them, create a racetrack, make a marble run… We’ve also been known to use ours as animal pens for our wooden farm. Not cheap, at about £57 including postage from Kinuma, but definitely one to hand down.
