Nins® Tomten – 42 Piece Set by Grapat. The iconic Nins® Tomten by Grapat includes 42 pieces and is made from natural materials It follows the Waldorf philosophies, have no gender or mood allowing the child to develop their own stories and characters with each Nin encouraging imagination and creativity. They can be used alone or combined with other toys to create miniature worlds, be part of a puzzle, used in mathematical problems, language development or sensory play – the possibilities are endless.
Grapat toys are all handmade with love from almost all locally sourced materials and subject to nature making every piece unique. Every part of each toy has been considered from the dimensions of the toy, to the shape or form, the thickness of the wood and the colour.
Grapat workshop is located in the countryside and being close to nature can make some tones and colours have variations. Depending on the humidity or if there is wind the dye can impregnate one way or another in the wood. The finishes are made with waxes and oils of vegetable origin. The oils can have a strong aroma at first, but it loses it with the days. We love it!
Each piece that passes through Grapat’s hands is unique. Each one is painted by hand. And since from Grapat we defend the value of nature, we accept imperfection. It is beautiful and makes the material even more valuable. The cloth bags that are included in some of the products come from big companies that discard material when they have a small defect. As Grapat produces the bags by hand they can take advantage of them by removing those defects and giving them a second life. The fabrics vary and do not match with the photos of the products.
