Grapat Seasons Winter
The Grapat Seasons Winter from Oskar's Wooden Ark is a great first set to add to your toy collection when choosing from the Grapat range. The carefully chosen colours from each season represents the many ways in which the nature of our environment evolves and changes. The combined Nins, rings and coins encourages children to create logical mathematical relationships from sorting and counting the many different shapes and colours of each piece. This simple action strengthens their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination and the many pieces that are included inspire open ended play.
The Grapat Seasons Winter set includes 3 Nins, 3 Nins with Top Hats, 3 Mates (cups), 9 rings and 9 coins. Recommended for children aged 12 months+. Nins measure 6cm in height, Mates (cups) measure 5cm in height and coins and rings have a diameter of 4.7 cm.
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.
