Details: 36 wooden marbles in the colors of the rainbow. This marble set includes a textile bag with GOT Certificate fabric.
What do you see here? A fabric bag that, just by touching it, lets us sense what the content is: 36 natural marbles, made of wood and with different colors. The thirty-six comes from six times six. It might be strange to speak of six in a decimal world, but if we take into account the 12 months of the year, 24 hours a day, dozens in the counting of certain elements... we will see how 12 elements are easier to share and group together than 10, we invite you to try.
When kid's hands approach this material they see beyond the colors, and with their sense of touch they can feel the texture of the wood, the round edges, the flat sides, spheres... Their hands can “see” the quality that shines not because of the colors but due to the warmth and natural origin of the material. Playing with marbles is something that children of different cultures and ages have done throughout history. It could be considered a game that is part of the culture of childhood. The marbles, with their spherical shape let us play with geometry. When we release them from their bag they become playful; they roll and bounce everywhere, hide under the furniture and become uncontrollable in their rolling and rolling. They collide with each other and they change direction when their impact with each other. What makes glass marbles different from wood marbles? The sound when falling, when hitting each other, the weight, the texture...
Remember that materials are the excuse, because children's play is the essence of existence and the highest expression of life. Children make their way into the world through the game and, if we let them, we will see that they are telling us: I am, I can and I’m able. Enjoy Playing!
