They began collecting folk tales around 1807. They produced a manuscript collection of several dozen tales, which they had recorded by inviting storytellers to their home and transcribing what they heard. In 1812, they published a collection of 86 German fairy tales in a volume titled Kinder-und Hausmarchen (Childrens and Household Tales). They published a second volume of 70 stories in 1814, which together make up the first edition of the collection, containing 156 stories. In 1830, they formed a household in Gottingen where they were to become professors.
