Grapat Perpetual Calendar without Nins
The Grapat Perpetual Calendar without Nins from Oskar's Wooden Ark is designed to be used with an set of the 12 Nins or wooden peg dolls to display the day and month of the year in true Waldorf style. Having an annual calendar that is changeable and self-manipulative allows the child to touch the day and year and so understand the passage of time through experience.
The Grapat Perpetual Calendar without Nins includes 1 beech wood bowl, 2 wooden cubes and a circular 4-piece month platform. Recommended for children aged 12 months+.
Casiana and Jordi, the founders of Grapat Wooden Toys are from a small town in the Pyrenean mountains of Catalunya who were inspired by how their daughter played when given the freedom to play with her natural every day surroundings. They believe that when the toy is somewhat seemingly simplistic and given without instructions, it encourages children to develop a more adventurous and complex activity with it.
Grapat toys are all handmade with love from almost all locally sourced materials and subject to nature making every piece unique. Every part of each toy has been considered from the dimensions of the toy, to the shape or form, the thickness of the wood and the colour.
