Grapat 12 Nins

$67.95

“Nins” mean “children” in Spanish.  These 12 simple peg dolls are made with love and sustainable materials and form the basis of so many aspects of play, from imaginative and small world play, to story-telling, and to learning through play in counting and sorting. Their simple and unstructured form allow children to imagine the expression, gender and roles supporting their own emotional development and understanding of the world and people around them.

    Joguines Grapat is a small, family-run workshop producing natural wooden toys near the base of the Pyrenees mountains in Catalonia, Spain. Casiana and Jordi (the founders of Grapat) drawing on ideas from Waldorf and Montessori pedagogies, and the natural world around them, believe that play is a sacred moment, that simply made toys without instruction encourage children to explore and discover each in their own unique way.  Made with love using mostly beech and birch wood sourced locally from sustainable forests, all Grapat Toys are finished with water-based, non-toxic dyes and vegetable oils, and come beautifully presented in sustainable eco-friendly packaging.
