I’m in love with these Grimm’s Spiel & Holz Alphabet Magnets. However, they’re expensive. You can get a boring old set of plastic alphabet fridge magnets for what, $10? Maybe less. This set will run you $67.95. Gulp.
In spite of the cost though, there’s no denying that Grimm’s Spiel & Holz make the most wonderful wooden toys. The company is FSC Certified (as of August 2015), using alder, lime and maple wood that’s sustainably sourced. All colored dyes, inks, high grade biological oils and glues used for their products meet the European Standards EN 71 for toy safety and are lead and phthalates free.
If your child munches on these letters it’s not like munching on icky plastic. Also these Alphabet Magnets are gorgeous. Grimm’s Spiel & Holz always uses the best, most brilliant colors for their wooden products which will entice your child to create and create again.
SADLY: This particular set of alphabet magnets is incredibly tough to find anymore. Click here to see other cool wooden magnet options.
