This box helps to create an isolated and enclosed area which improves focus and respect towards the action within it. A child’s game needs a container, an area which holds the action and that allows for the children to know their limits and understand space.What happens in the Free Play Box? Inside the box, the elements are placed within certain limits that give security to the children. The box becomes a sensorial game when it’s filled up with sand, flour, salt, rice, etc.In the background, there are some stamped images which evoke the four classical elements: earth, water, air and fire. These elements are part of our species and make us connect with nature. The allegory to these elements can also be used as a game space or as an invitation to organize and classify.A great play area for the Grapat Nins, mandala pieces, and an infinite variety of other toys and games!
Grapat toys are designed to stir the imagination, to allow the child to be creative in her own way. There is no right way to play with the toys: just go where the fancy takes you!
Box 45x65x7 cm
The wood used for Grapat toys (primarily beech and birch) comes from sustainable forests. Wood is the source that inspires the workshop 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: they allow the grain of the wood to show through, bringing children into closer contact with nature. The finishes are made with waxes and oils of vegetable origin. The oils can have a strong aroma at first, but it loses it within a few days. Each piece is unique, each one is painted by hand. And natural imperfections are recognized as being part of the natural wood: it is beautiful and makes the material even more valuable.
For care or cleaning of the parts, wipe with a damp cloth and dry immediately.
