Cupolas Big Set of Building Blocks by Raduga Grez
The curvaceous and quirky Cupolas big set of building blocks is hand-made by Raduga Grez in Russia. Part of their Slavic Fairytale collection, these blocks celebrate the shapely onion domes of Slavic architecture as well as its traditions and handicrafts. This set was specifically inspired by the architecture of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, Tchaikovsky's music and illustrations from Slavic fairy tales.
Raduga Grez is a family-run company that makes solid wood toys with the aim of 'celebrating creativity'. We envision their captivating toys being passed from one generation to another, loved by children and adults alike. Each toy is painted using non-toxic water-based paint and the natural grain and texture of each piece of wood is purposely preserved. Raduga Grez's carpenters have been making matryoshka dolls for three generations and their process remains very traditional. The wood used to make the toys is cut from whole round logs and the toys are painted and packaged in the same small workshop.
This bountiful set of blocks makes the perfect toy for imaginative play, with endless building possibilities. Its 48 pieces also fit together flat in its wooden display box like a jigsaw puzzle.
