The Nins of the Forest is a gorgeous set designed to inspire stories and small worlds. However, combined with other elements, they can be part of mathematical, language and sensorial games, among others. Moreover, this material is not structured, which allows for it to be used in a broad number of ways. The adaptability of these materials contributes to creative and divergent ways of thinking.
Many elements in this set are suggestions to create small worlds, miniature scenes that invite children to express and act out stories from their own internal world to the real world. This is done through games, emotions, movement, imagination, etc. The protagonists of the children’s tales and legends are the Nins with a top hat, with or without a hood. The different materials that accompany the Nins create scenes where they can live and feel a whole new imaginary world.

Founded by husband and wife team, Casiana and Jordi, in the Pyrenean mountains of Catalunya, Grapat is a small family project that materialized from the journey of leaving the city to live in a more natural environment. Their motivation came from watching their young daughter play with the unstructured treasures that nature had to offer.
Inspired by the Waldorf pedagogy, Grapat's philosophy of natural, simple play is based on providing children with few basic items allowing them to create their own games and imaginary worlds.
Grapat is not only incredibly beautiful, but perfect for those wanting to start or expand their open-ended toy collection. Their popular loose parts. range is proven to be incredibly versatile; from colour sorting and pattern matching to being used as kitchen play food and resources to teach math.
