Grimm's Spiel und Holz Design
The annual calendar ring set by Grimm's Spiel und Holz includes:
Large baseplate with 31 indentations for marbles (may be turned over if you prefer to display figures or other items)
35 wooden balls/marbles (one color for each day of the week)
12 wooden month pieces, each with 5 holes
Wooden frame for month pieces
THE BIRTHDAY RING ORNAMENTS, CANDLE INSERT AND CANDLE ARE SOLD SEPARATELY
Each segment of this annual calendar ring represents 1 month. Each week a candle or marble moves one hole further, either on the 1st, 8th, 15th and the 22nd of the month, or on Sundays or Mondays. The remaining 31 colored balls mark the calendar day of the month (Grimms suggests assigning one color to each day of the week, eg Blue for Monday, Purple for Tuesday, etc). A figure can be placed in the inside hole and something relating to the month in the bowl, or a birthday gift or large candle: There really is no wrong way to use this beautiful handcrafted set!
A fantastic set to keep out all year long, and a wonderful way to mark birthdays, celebrations and the changes of seasons. Start a new family tradition this year!
