Diversity Building Blocks by Raduga Grez
The sculpturally beautiful Diversity building blocks set is hand-made by Raduga Grez in Russia. Raduga Grez designed this toy for 'creative and conscious children of the future who will make the world better'. The nose acts as a symbol of the one air we all breathe, the fist is a sign of the voice we all have, and the palm stops violence. The heart represents the love we share, while the bird suggests freedom and flight. The blue ball is the planet we share, while the river and bridge act as reminders to constantly work at building peace. This thoughtful toy is meant to raise ideas and conversations about equality and tolerance though creative play.
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.
The Diversity set of ten building blocks comes in a cotton drawstring bag and box.
