This little thing is neither here nor there. It might be used to tuck away a wish or store a tiny treasure. It might become part of a counting and sorting game. Or, it might cast as a character in an imagined world. The simple design lends itself to a whole host of uses, encouraging open-ended play that’s free from rules or instructions. Each plum-hued little thing features a hollow wood base (sized to fit a lucky penny or three) and a removable, reversible lid with a round bobble face on one side and a stemmed handle on the other.
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 …"
