The Rhythm of Life is an existential calendar which makes the comprehension of the concept ‘course of time’ easier for children. Each colour represents a month of the year, and at the same time, they represent the four seasons. However, there are other colours which indicate special dates. There is a ribbon that marks the change of seasons. This material can be put together all at once in advance or by threading one ball a day.

The different materials are presented as loose pieces. The idea is that every day the child threads a ball according to the season and the month of the year. This way, children will experience time as days, months, years and seasons pass by.

Age Recommendation: 3+

Contains:  375 balls, a cotton cord (8 m), 4 ribbons which you can be used to differentiate between and 13 bowls to organize the balls. Includes a cloth bag.

Materials: Grapat uses sustainably forested beech and birch. Wood is the source that inspires daily. It is robust, soft and hard, it is warm, it sounds good and it smells good. The dyes are based on water and non-toxic that comply with the European safety regulations of the Toy EN / 71-3: 2014 + A1: 2014 / 2013. Working with dyes and not with acrylic paints allows Grapat to continue having contact with the wood. The dye does not jump from the wood when it falls to the ground or when time passes because it penetrates deep inside the piece. Sometimes it can happen that by an excess of pigments some piece loses some colour when coming in contact with the saliva, no problem, they are absolutely safe and non-toxic.

NEW SHIPPING RESTRICTIONS - As of July 2020, Grapat does not allow the sale and shipping of its products from Canadian sellers to American customers. We apologize for this inconvenience.

 

Care Instructions:  For care simply use soapy water with a damp cloth for cleaning. Dry immediately. Please do not submerge in water and do NOT use disinfectant or hot water.

GRAPAT provides material without instructions, open-ended and autonomous play. Their only premise is to let children play, slowly, without time limits. Grapat hand crafts materials that encourage, invite and stimulate the creation of invented little worlds. Grapat is made following traditional processes, in the old way, with thick soft raw materials, natural dyes that let the wood veins be seen and vibrant coloured waxes and oils that slightly shine. The products are painted by hand, homemade, surrounded by nature and many children nearby that inspire the makers daily.
