Grapat: Creative wooden toys for open play
Grapat is a Catalonian word, translated it means something like "handful". It expresses how we carefully hold small things in our hands. We have to go through everyday life more carefully so that we can also see the inconspicuous and small things. Grapat invites you to change your perspective and enjoy life. Since the birth of their first daughter, the founders had this idea of developing and designing toys. Again and again you observed how your daughter used shelves, drawers and other everyday objects as toys and let her imagination run free while playing. It was therefore important for the parents to develop toys that were as versatile as possible that supported open play and stimulated creativity. Many Grapat products have been awarded the "Spiel Gut" label.
The game is something sacred, a parallel world, almost a meditation that is determined by its own times and rules. At that moment, the game is the world where everything is okay. It inspires how the need to play is almost higher than the food. Playing with children is unstoppable. It's an inner need. Playing with one's own daughter was almost magical for the founders of Grapat, which should definitely be encouraged instead of nipped in the bud. The colorful wooden toys from Grapat offer many combinations and space for creative ideas, it helps with learning shapes and brings children closer to color theory. It is designed in a simple and open manner and fits every game idea. The wooden toys from Grapat are suitable for children from ten months.
