This set includes six rainbow baby Nins—a mini version of Grapat’s iconic Nin peg dolls—in a coconut shell. The Nins do not have eyes, hair, or a gender, which means that your child has the freedom to choose the characters that they will represent. These figures can be used in block play and dollhouses, or to create stories and small worlds, but they are also equally fun for mathematical or sorting games. Grapat’s colorful, open-ended handmade toys are intended to spark your child’s imagination; there is no right or wrong way to play. Ethically created in Spain.
