Building blocks Vanitas are inspired by 17th century still life. A candle is a symbol of life, a butterfly is beauty and fragility, a glass and a jug are the fullness of life and a sandglass is a reminder about the time we have.This block set can not be used to build houses or towers, but it can be used to express emotions and talk about beauty, life and the things that are worth celebrating every day. It’s carefully handmade from solid wood and painted with non toxic water paint.

Raduga Grez is a brand run by a Russian family for already three generations of carpenters. It once started making Matryoshka dolls and it evolved into a brand for dreamers and visionairs. Raduga Grez makes toys to celebrate creativity and the open mind. As they say; ‘ Let you taste go and be out of normality and beauty standard. Walk the way you walk and play the toys you want’. The toys are all made by hand from solid wood and painted with non-toxic water based paint. They believe handmade toys have soul, therefor wood patterns and texture are kept in every toy. The family controls production from buying wood by a responsible supplier up to packing the finished goods avoiding the use of plastics.
