Grapat 6 Rainbow Dishes
6 wooden dishes in the colours of the rainbow, each 18 cm in diameter.
These dishes invite your child to play their own games with them, and are exceptionally versatile - they can be used for counting and sorting either other wooden toy items or things your child will collect from nature, such as leaves, shells, or stones. They can be used as plates for a tea party, or as a resource for creating imaginary worlds and scenes - as roofs for buildings, or as a base for stacking.
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.
