The Grapat sets favor creative and divergent thinking. Free play allows our children to connect with their deepest desire and develop the activity they need.
The unstructured and open-ended play objects do not have a correct or incorrect way to be used, so we work without instructions.
The materials used are open to guide the child through all its learning phases. The pieces can be transformed into symbolic material for the creation of stories and the construction of small worlds but can also serve for mathematical, language or sensory games.
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.
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.
Joguines Grapat is a small, family run workshop from Spain, producing rainbow-colored toys in wood to fascinate children of all ages. Using wood (mostly beech and birch) from sustainable forests, along with water-based, non-toxic dyes and vegetable oils, Grapat makes toys that are not just fun, but safe and responsible.
