The shapes are based on Dutch roof lines, anyone who has been to the Netherlands, Amsterdam in particular, will have seen the amazing shapes.
The gems are opaque/block, meaning, not see-through.
The blocks work well together with the others in this series, even though they are of different heights.
The sizes are based on 10cm x 2.5cm.
Please note: small marks on the gems are considered normal, it doesn't happen that much but occasionally there may be some small specks or a small mark.
Please consider this a sign of the hand work involved in making these blocks, it does not detract form the play value.
Founded in 1991 by Australian Renske Carbone, Papoose Toys and Creative Wood Company under the umbrella of Colours of Australia produce natural toys and loose parts for open-ended creative play. Working with natural materials, production takes place in small communities in Nepal, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Pure wool felt toys and loose parts are made by hand at fairly traded rates of pay. The Creative Wood Company products are made primarily using waste from the furniture industry with wood supplied exclusively from wood traders meeting the SVLK Timber Legality Verification.
The Creative Wood Company wood care instructions: We aim to have the least amount of non-natural finish on our products. Wood is a natural material and will dry out over time. We mainly use food safe oil to bring out the colour in the wood, if your article starts to look like it needs some care it can simply be re-oiled. Coconut oil can be used or try a hardware for a food safe oil.
