Play and fun with potato starch

fischerTiP: craft, stick, build, and paint

The creative and crafting material fischerTiP is produced from potato starch and natural food coloring. This non-toxic toy is suitable for children ages 3+. fischerTiP is a high-quality product that’s “Made in Germany” and produced from potatoes grown on domestic farms. It is 100 percent biodegradable. Numerous uses in kindergartens and other institutions have shown that creating with fischerTiP can help children learn in many different ways. Building, crafting, sticking, and painting with fischerTiPs promotes:

  • children's motor skills
  • three-dimensional spatial abilities
  • imagination, creativity, and concentration
  • childhood development through sensory experiences, independent experimentation, creative design, and exciting discoveries.

Simply moisten the TiPs with water and stick them together. They can easily be cut, pressed, and shaped. You can build colorful figurines, flowers, or whole landscapes with no adhesives at all. Painting with fischerTiPs is also child’s play. The blocks, produced in twelve vivid basic colors, can be dissolved in water to create paints.

Use our tools to modify fischerTiPs so you can create diverse, even complex model ideas. Our selection of tools includes a sponge, a cutting tool, a building block shaper, a painting and gluing tool, and a grater. The tools are produced from resource-saving bioplastics. This helps us stay true to our high sustainability standards.

fischerTiPs were awarded the coveted “spiel gut” seal of approval by the “Arbeitsausschuss Kinderspiel + Spielzeug” (Child's Play + Toy working committee) – and the quality rating “Mit Sicherheit geprüfte Qualität” (Safely tested quality) by the Landesgewerbeanstalt (State Business Association).
