Slugs, ants and ladybugs; wow. What a set for your little one to include in their play! They favour open-ended play for your child given that they can be anything your child might need them to be at any particular moment in time, or in any particular game or imaginary world they are creating; they don't have to be ladybugs, slugs and ants.

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 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.
