The Goethe Circle is based on Goethe's Colour Wheel, which famously sets out his understanding of optics:
"When the eye sees a colour it is immediately excited and it is its nature, spontaneously and of necessity, at once to produce another, which with the original colour, comprehends the whole chromatic scale."
— Goethe, Theory of Colours
The colours diametrically opposed to each other in the Wheel are those which reciprocally evoke each other in the eye - Yellow x Violet, Orange x Blue, Red x Green etc.
Theories aside, the Goethe Circle provides many hours of quiet enjoyment as your child pieces together visual treats.
The beauty of these creative puzzles is that the fun never ends. Keep dreaming, and something new comes up.
Inspired by the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner, Grimm’s is about the rainbow, happy colours, creativity, and the imagination. Lovingly hand finished with non-toxic and water based stains (unvarnished) by a specialist team in Germany, the puzzles, building sets, and toys are gorgeous, and also work as décor pieces for a beautiful home. We love it because there are no instructions, and you can do no wrong with a Grimm’s toy. Just play, learn, and enjoy.
