Boxes and balls felt
When a manufacturer convinces us, we like to be inspired by their product world to new ideas. Together with Én Gry & Sif we have developed this set of boxes and balls hand-felted from pure new wool, which with its soft feel and colorful design encourages educational free play. In this composition you get the set only with us.
The treasure at the end of the rainbow
At the end of the rainbow, so it says in the Irish legend, a pot full of gold and luck can be found. The gold we can not promise for the rainbow colors of these boxes and balls, but a treasure you will find unawares: the playful light promotion of your child, which may follow stimulated his natural urge to explore and thirst for knowledge and discover the world in free play sensually, emotionally and cognitively.
In the beginning is the impressive sensory perception: experience the hand-pleasing feel of the virgin wool, touch the boxes and balls matched to children's hand size, grasp and handle them freely, look at the many colors and color nuances ... This is accompanied by the promotion of motor and cognitive skills: Stack the boxes into towers or nest them inside each other, sort the balls into the matching color boxes or simply count, put in proportion to the number of boxes ... Whatever occurs to your child (and it will develop a lot of ideas) to do with the boxes and balls of felt: bored your offspring will certainly not.
Together with Én Gry & Sif we have put together this set hand-felted from pure New Zealand virgin wool. In the spirit of Maria Montessori's pedagogy, it fulfills all the qualities as a "learning material" and specifically takes into account free, creative play, it trains the ability to concentrate and playfully promotes fine motor and cognitive skills. The impressive spectrum of boxes and balls combines the colors of the rainbow in itself and animates her child as it were by itself, the rainbow nachlegen (and again divide into its components).
And should your offspring actually ever get tired of this fascinating game - which we assume only from a certain teenage age - so you still have the option to include the colorful boxes and balls in the decoration of your interior: virtually as another treasure at the end of the rainbow.
A Fair Collaboration. Gry & Sif
During her backpacking tour through Nepal, the Dane Gry Staunstrup got to know the astonishing openness and warmth of the country’s inhabitants, and their craftsmanship bedazzled her. She was able to observe in detail how adeptly and skilfully Nepalese women felted wool into a wide variety of objects. Staunstrup felt it was time to make something good out of the untapped potential, and an idea was born: to combine Nepalese handicrafts with Danish design. And the idea was immediately followed by action.
The company Gry & Sif started producing a variety of products made of wool felt in Nepal in 2000. The designs created by Gry Staunstrup are as remarkable as they are understated and, characteristic of Danish design, at the same time fresh and merry. Nepalese women turn them into products employing traditional handicrafts. Fair Trade certified by now, Gry & Sif stands for fair wages and working conditions, environmentally conscious production and transparency. The company exclusively sources pure new wool from New Zealand sheep for the felting; each of the resulting products is handmade and unique.
This product is an example of genuine handicraft; therefore, minor deviations in size and colour may occur.
