Step into the rhythmic flow of time with Grapat's Wooden Perpetual Calendar with Nins, a beautifully crafted educational tool that brings the concept of time to life. This set includes 12 vibrant Nins, each representing a month and a season, allowing children to visually and tactically engage with the cycle of the year. The calendar's circular platform is divided into four sections, each denoting a season, with spaces for the Nins to mark the passage of months.

Why we love Grapat's Perpetual Calendar with Nins:

  • Time Learning: Helps children grasp the concept of months, seasons, and the yearly cycle.
  • Sensory Experience: Offers a tactile way to explore the elements of time through colourful, wooden figures.
  • Interactive Design: Encourages hands-on learning and interaction with the physical calendar.
  • Educational Play: Aids in teaching sequencing, pattern recognition, and temporal awareness.
  • Eco-Friendly: Made with sustainable materials and natural finishes, safe for children and the environment.

With the Grapat Wooden Perpetual Calendar with Nins, children are invited to touch, move, and arrange the pieces, actively participating in their own understanding of time. This calendar is a functional educational tool and a playful addition to any learning space, blending the natural charm of wooden toys with the timeless utility of a calendar. Through engaging with this perpetual calendar, children not only learn about the passage of time but also connect with the natural rhythm of life, making each day a valuable part of the learning journey.

  • About the Brand

    Grapat is a family-founded brand that emerged from the simple yet profound realization that children thrive on open-ended play. Established in the serene countryside after the founders observed their own children's imaginative play, Grapat has dedicated itself to creating wooden toys that encourage creativity, freedom, and interaction with the natural world. Their philosophy is deeply rooted in respect for childhood, believing in the power of simple, unstructured play to foster development and imagination.

    Handcrafting each piece with care and attention to detail, Grapat uses sustainable materials sourced within the EU, emphasizing eco-friendliness and safety. The toys are brought to life with natural dyes and finished with vegetable-based waxes and oils, highlighting the wood's inherent beauty and ensuring each item is unique and safe for children. This commitment to quality and sustainability reflects Grapat's values of environmental stewardship and the promotion of a slower, more intentional way of life.

    At the heart of Grapat's ethos is the belief that toys should serve as tools for play, not dictate it. By offering materials without instructions or imposed limitations, they invite children to create their own stories and games, nurturing their innate ability to innovate. Grapat stands as a testament to the belief that through play, children can explore the world, understand their place within it, and express their individuality freely and creatively.
