Grimm's new arrival for 2021. They have translated the Four Temperaments into a language of form and colour. The result is a colourful building set with 61 building blocks in free form.
The individual building blocks are reminiscent of animals and various other creatures, and by combining different building elements, something new is always created that will stimulate and inspire the imagination.
A predominant temperament at at given time determines the specific mood in which someone finds themself. It influences how we feel and experience life, how we think, act or react. Through a playful approaching to the characteristic features of the temperaments, a feeling for their essence can be developed. Really each of us is a unique blend of all Four Temperaments.
The Melancholic temperament has a compassionate and rather reflective nature. It is BLUE, turning inward into the depths, with edges, curves and endurance - like its element, the Earth.
The Choleric temperament has an active and fiery nature. It is RED, on the move and sometimes even sharp-edged. Its impulsiveness belongs to the element of Fire.
The Phlegmatic temperament is steady and content. It is GREEN and still like the surface of a pond. Its curves and soft shapes correspond to its element, Water.
The Sanguine temperament radiates cheerfulness and optimism. It is YELLOW and shines from within, losing itself in the periphery or in the sky. Air is its element.
