The elements of this set allow children to create imaginary Small Worlds. There are no instructions and rules involved. As each object is deliberatey not too detailed it allows the child to give it the shape that each of them needs to be able to generate their own story. The coins can be roads or stones, the cones can became trees, the wooden figures can be transformed into magical beings or real people…
Grapat Toys is a small family run business in the beautiful region of Catalonia in northern Spain. Made with the greatest love, care and attention to detail, Grapat toys are known for their loose parts which to encourage children to play and discover freely using their own imagination.
Inspired by Waldorf principles, Grapat toys reflect the beauty of the earth and are made from locally-sourced sustainable timbers and finished with water-based dyes.
GRAPAT provides material without instructions, Open-ended and favors free and autonomous play. Our only premise is to let children play, slowly, without time limits. We suggest material that encourages, invites and stimulates the creation of several fantastic, realistic and invented little worlds. It is made following traditional processes, in the old way, with thick soft raw materials, natural dyes which let the wood veins be seen and vibrant coloured waxes and oils that slightly shine. The products are painted by hand, homemade, surrounded by land, fire, rivers and many children nearby, who inspire us daily.
