Grapat Freeplay Tray
A large wooden tray , 46 x 65 x 7 cm.
A wonderful piece to contain the game - it sets a framework for action that controls and sets limits to the elements and spaces of the game itself, helping your child to understand limits and space.
It's pretty too - in the background, there are stamped images which evoke the four classical elements: earth, water, air and fire.
It's also great for containted sensory play with rice and flour, and for adding environmental pieces such as shells, sand, and stones.
This Waldorf-inspired set will entrance and entertain from 0 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.
