Grapat 20 Element Treasure Basket
This Grapat natural wooden toy set includes 20 elements made from wood and finished in natural waxes in a GOTS certified organic cotton bag.
This large collection of 20 wooden treasures is designed to be used for discovery through play, stimulating all the senses. Various shapes including bowls, balls, rings, coins and spools with leather threads make up each set. The perfect size for little hands to discover.
Small hands enjoy exploring the shapes and learning how they can interact with each other. These wooden pieces can form part of a larger treasure basket if you include other suitable materials such as metal or fabric items. Treasure baskets are often associated with Heuristic Play where babies explore the relationships between objects around them by being allowed to play with various elements freely. This set offers a great starting point. Team up with other Grapat natural wooden toys for open-ended play. This is a wonderful natural set for Montessori and Waldorf childcare settings, and makes a perfect natural baby gift which green parents will love.
Recommended for 10+ months. Spools measure 6cm in diameter and height and have a leather thread through them. Grapat toys are hand made using natural wood and water based stain. Colours and wood grains vary as does life itself. Over time wood can wear with play.
