Grimms have created the beautiful Four Temperaments block set to represent a range of feelings and outlooks in symbolic form – shape and colour.
Open ended and completely unique, these building blocks are fabulous for stimulating the imagination and for children to use in creative play.
The four temperaments are:
Melancholic: Compassionate and rather sad nature. It is BLUE, turning inward into the depths, with edges, curves and endurance - like its element, the Earth.
Choleric: Active and fiery nature. It is RED, jagged and sometimes sharp-edged. Its impulsiveness belongs to the element of Fire.
Phlegmatic: Steady and content. It is GREEN and still like the surface of a pond. Its curves and soft shapes correspond to its
Sanguine: Radiates cheerfulness and optimism. It is YELLOW and shines from within, losing itself in the periphery or in the sky. Air is its element.
This Grimms Set includes 61 wooden building blocks in a wooden frame. It comes with a paper template to show block placement in the frame.
These Grimms blocks are made with lime wood, coloured with non-toxic water-based stain and finished with a plant based oil.
