Details: The 12 Nins become a toy which can be used as a symbolic play, to create stories and small worlds. However, combined with other elements, they can be part of mathematical, language and sensorial games, among others. Moreover, this material is not structured, which allows for it to be used in a broad number of ways. They don’t have eyes, or a gender. This way, it’s the children who can develop their own stories and it’s them who decide which character they are going to play with.

Brand: Grapat creates beautiful, open-ended toys. Manufactured by local craftspeople, the toys are made from sustainably harvested birch and beech wood, finished with water-based non-toxic stains. The dyes penetrate deep into the wood, preventing color chipping when the toys are dropped. There will be some natural variation in color as each piece is painted by hand. Bags are made from upcycled fabric sourced from larger, local businesses. All toys are great additions to both Waldorf and Montessori education programs.
