36 wood trees in graduated green tones. Lay them out in patterns on their own, or add them to the other Grapat mandala components for spectacular results!
A creative way to engage and ground little ones through meditative play. Use the rainbow-hued wood pieces in this set to build an intricate mandala pattern. These elaborate arrangements of symbols have ties to ancient spiritual practices, where they were used as tools for focusing the mind. The pieces can stand on end or lay flat, and feature domed bases with bubble-edged bottleneck tops akin to abstract little pineapples. The 36 pieces come in a gradient palette that ranges from maroon to mauve to dusty rose.
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 …"
