    Grapat toys are designed and made in Spain, conforming with the European Directives for Toys (DIN EN 71).

As a result, they might differ slightly and even have unique markings since wood grain has changing structures and colours which serve as proof of their natural origins. Over time colours and wood can also wear with play. 

    About Grapat:

    Grapat is a small family business from Catalunya, that realised from the desire of leaving the city behind to live in a natural, rural environment. Their wooden toys are inspired by a natural approach, and the idea that children need only a few key basics to create their imaginary worlds. Simple wooden figures, cups, bowls, loose parts and shapes in seasonal, naturelike shades are in the core of their range. At first glance, at least to the untrained adult eyes, they might look even a bit too simplistic – limited maybe to sorting and pattern-creating. But give it into your children’s hands and shortly you will realise they are pure magic. They inspire creative, imaginative play that fully absorbs them for hours. To grasp their essence better, maybe think of them rather as kind of art materials than conventional toys which pre-determine games or ideas. Just like a couple of blocks of crayon or pots of paint, Grapat toys inspire children create and express their wonderful inner worlds freely.

    Little Bear’s Favourite: 

    This calendar was our first Grapat – knowing it had a dedicated purpose that we understood, we felt confident about buying it early on. Well, that’s how parents think, who don’t see the magic so easily anymore. But even before we could start using it as a weekly calendar, our son took a liking to this toy, and made us realise how versatile and magical it is. He used it for stacking, colour matching and sorting for months, and as he’s been growing the peg dolls are still in everyday use for different imaginary adventures. Yes, this toy is a calendar: and even for that, it’s brilliant, since it teaches the child the passage of time in a very tangible and understandable way. But don’t be misled, it is so much more than that!
