Grapat 6 Baby Nins
The Baby Nins set contains 6 little Nins in pastel rainbow shades and a coconut shell .
The pieces themselves encourage open-ended play for your child given that they can used in any particular game or imaginary world they are creating.
They can be combined with the classic Nins to create play scenes in which different generations are present. The coconut shell can be used too - it can be a bed, a boat, a shelter, or anything that your child imagines.
The materials themselves have purpose - wood is natural and warm. In the hand the soft forms inspire and the textures soothe.
The pieces are also an excellent loose-part resource for incorporating into other games and for use with other toys.
This Waldorf-inspired set will entrance and entertain from 36 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.
