The Grapat 12 Nins from BabyDonkie is a wonderful wooden toy set that can be used for creative and small worlds play. Made from locally sourced wood from a small town in the Pyrenean mountains of Catalunya, these peg dolls have no gender allowing children to use their imagination and creativity.
'Nins' meaning children in Catalan, do not have eyes or gender, as Grapat owners Casiana and Jordi, believe that when the toy is simplistic in design and with little instructions provided, it encourages children to use their imagination, creativity and mind. This follows the Waldorf educational approach which is popular across the globe and used in preschools and early learning centres.
Children can use these Nins to develop mathematical games, storytelling, learn colours or provide hours of creative open-ended play.
Grapat wooden toys are all handmade in Spain using sustainably sourced wood, non-toxic, water-based dyes, and finished with waxes and oils of vegetable origin. The oils can have a strong aroma at first, but generally, they lose the smell over time.
Each piece is unique as they are handcrafted and hand-painted. Grapat understands the “imperfections” of wood as characteristics that make each piece one of a kind.
With a strong focus on the environment, from 2019 Grapat Wooden Toys have 100% eliminated the use of plastic from their packaging.
