Grapat 3 Natural Wooden Nins®
This set comprises 3 different coloured Nins® each made from a different wood - beech, oak, and sapeli. They not only look different, they feel different too, and their simple nature allows the grain and warmth of the wood to really show through.
These pieces can be played with on their own or included in any imaginary world or game your child creates. The figures themselves are genderless and expressionless which further allows deep play as your child will decide how they fit into the story.
The materials themselves have purpose - wood is natural and warm. In the hand the soft forms inspire and the textures soothe.
This Waldorf-inspired set will entrance and entertain from 12 months to 100 years!

Grapat is a small family project that materialized from leaving the city to live in a natural environment. However, the idea began to grow many years ago, during the first 3 years of the owners' eldest daughter. She had almost no toys and that led them to consider the need for children to even have them. They allowed her to use everyday objects, they opened kitchen cupboards, and allowed books to become roads, and scarves to be transformed into huts.
The whole ethos behind Grapat is free play, loose parts, open and unstructured materials which transform into what children decide and which are the expressions of their imaginations at that moment in time. They are materials without instructions, the only premise is to let children play, without time, slowly. Wood is a material that incites, invites, causes the creation of diverse worlds which are fantastic, realistic and yet entirely imaginary.
