Grapat 6 Rainbow Cups With Lids
Contains 6 cups with matching lids in rainbow colours.
Helps your child with classifying, organising, grouping, matching, storing, hiding etc. This is a simple yet complicated at the same time complicated game, in the sense that simple things become complex if we are allowed to explore the multiple possibilities of non-structural elements.
They are also a great loose part resource that can be used with other toys and games - upside down they can become buildings as part of imaginary villages, blocks to move with diggers, or stacking elements in your child's wooden structures.
Children are easily encouraged into deep play through the simple design and unstructured nature of the set. They will explore colour, shape, design, size - working small motor skills and firing their imaginations as they go.
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 10 months to 100 years!

Grapat, Catalonia, Spain.
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.
