The mandala pumpkins toy set from the Grapat 2023 happy place collection comprises of 3 sets of 12 wooden toy pumpkins in lovely tones of orange – from burnt orange to a more bright diluted orange.
They are this year’s addition to the Grapat mandala collection and are all about pumpkin and spice. These lovely pumpkins bring the earthy warmth of Autumn into any mandala creation!
Grapat mandalas are small parts which can be applied stand alone in loose parts play or as elements in addition to other small world play toys or kits for children aged 3 years and up. Mandalas invite children to create, and as a popular form of meditation, they are also a great way to increase mindfulness, improve concentration and refine motor skills.
They can also be used to enrich symbolic play, or to practice counting and sorting. These delightful small wooden toys also perfectly serve in role-playing as pretend food for cooking, in a market stall or displayed on Waldorf seasonal and nature tables with objects found on nature walks.
Tactile and brightly coloured, the pumpkins measure approximately 4cm each and are crafted entirely from wood, and painted by hand. Each item is smooth and pleasant to touch and finished with natural bees wax.
The Grapat mandala pumpkins set is suitable for children aged 36 months and up.

About the Grapat Happy Place Collection
Cities must be a happy place, and not just for adults. Kids have our same rights, cities belong to them too. So what if we changed things up?
What if we made every city in the world their happy place too?
Let’s stand up for childhood. Let’s give them a voice that is louder than traffic. Kids, take the city!
Inspired by the Waldorf pedagogy, the Spanish brand Grapat is well-known for their beautiful wooden toys which are open-ended and favour free and autonomous play. The Grapat philosophy is based on providing open-ended toys that encourage, invite and stimulate creation allowing children to invent their own games and imaginary worlds.
All the wooden Grapat toys are hand-crafted in various workshops in Catalunya, Spain, following traditional processes, with wood derived from sustainable forests and painted by hand with water based dyes. The toys are safe for use by small children as they are non-toxic and comply with the European safety regulations of the directive EN / 71-3: 2014 + A1: 2014 / 2013 regarding toy safety. A large part of the Grapat toys collection carries the prestigious Spielgut® seal.
