Gluckskafer toys are beautifully crafted following Waldorf and Montessori philosophies, encouraging children to discover creative play independently. The 'colourful shapes' wooden products range are coloured and painted with water based stains and left unlacquered to bring out the original characteristics of the wood. This ensures the beautiful and unique grain shows through. Materials are carefully chosen to be environmentally friendly and tactile, in creative but classic styles and colours. Blocks are made to be 'grippy', feeling slightly rough to the touch to avoid slip, and increase build potential, and making them easier to stack. The combination and thoughtfulness behind each design provides for truly open ended play, and a sensory rich experience for each child.
