The 12 Nins Wizards with their magicians hats become material for symbolic play, a way to create stories and small worlds. Combined with other elements, they can be part of mathematical, language and sensorial games, among others. With no painted faces or discernable gender, they can be whatever the child imagines!
Grapat toys are designed to stir the imagination, to allow the child to be creative in her own way. There is no right way to play with the toys: just go where the fancy takes you!
The wood used for Grapat toys (primarily beech and birch) comes from sustainable forests. Wood is the source that inspires the workshop daily. It is robust, soft and hard, it is warm, it sounds good and it smells good.
The dyes are based on water and non-toxic: they allow the grain of the wood to show through, bringing children into closer contact with nature. The finishes are made with waxes and oils of vegetable origin. The oils can have a strong aroma at first, but it loses it within a few days. Each piece is unique, each one is painted by hand. And natural imperfections are recognized as being part of the natural wood: it is beautiful and makes the material even more valuable.
For care or cleaning of the parts, wipe with a damp cloth and dry immediately.
