The 12 bowls painted with 12 different colours result in a harmonious colour scale, which brings balance and a great sense of aesthetics to the children’s game and, consequently, a great sensitivity to beauty. The bowls complement the heuristic game with actions such as filling up and emptying out, going through and loading, etc. A bowl can be used to cover another bowl and, in that way, its content can be hidden or made to disappear. This game brings both pleasure and distress: the disappearance, the lost and found of the self and of our own treasures.
Age Recommendation: 3+

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.
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.
