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!
For care or cleaning of the parts, wipe with a damp cloth and dry immediately.

Play without instructions! Joguines Grapat is a small, family run workshop from Spain, producing rainbow-colored toys in wood to fascinate children of all ages. Using wood (mostly beech and birch) from sustainable forests, along with water-based, non-toxic dyes and vegetable oils, Grapat makes toys that are not just fun, but safe and responsible.
We love the open-ended nature of all the toys, a guiding principle for the Grapat family: "It inspires us to see our children and other children playing, the game has something sacred, like a parallel world-like meditation that is governed by its own rules, times. The game is the moment of the YES, where EVERYTHING IS OK, except the rules that are established and that normally have to do with not hurting oneself, others, the environment, the material and the creations of others …
And When these moments of true play occur we take care of it, we protect it as if it were a sacred moment. We do not interrupt, we take care of space, we keep silent …"
