Haba Review

Haba is the premier German wood manufacturing company that is world renowned for producing the highest quality baby and children’s toys available. Haba proudly assumes responsibility for the environment and was the “first toy maker in Germany to pass the ecological audit.” I have personally been purchasing Haba Toys for my own children since they were babies and the quality is unsurpassed in my experience.

My boys are builders just like their father, whose passion and hobby is woodworking. In fact, as soon as my husband saw the Discover the building blocks Technics Large Basic Pack Vehicles set his eyes widened and he declared that he would personally show the boys how to build with their new Haba Technics building blocks vehicle set. He didn’t really need to show the boys, ages 5 and 3 because as soon as they opened the box they were building…..and building for hours. I relished sitting back and simply watching my husband and son’s working together and using their imaginations to create vehicles and cities. Haba’s Technics large basic pack vehicles building set includes 12 clamps, 8 wheel clamps, 3 building block clutches and 26 building blocks. Haba does not simply create toys but they stimulate your child’s imagination and encourage hands on exploration and discovery which is priceless to me as a mother.

My passion for Haba toys goes back almost 2 ½ years ago when I purchased my first Haba doll for my daughter who was hospitalized during a severe asthma attack and we almost lost her. I wanted her to have a “friend” to keep her company during her long hospital stay and this doll has been her treasured “friend” since. The Haba doll is exquisitely made and is just so soft and snuggly.

The quality of Haba toys is exceptional in my opinion too. When my five year old son was a baby, I purchased his first set of Haba blocks. This colorful wooden block set includes a little buggy and adorable driver. I sometimes wonder if the Haba first blocks set inspired his love of building because it was the first toy that I remember him really appreciating and playing with every day.  These blocks are different because of the orange rubber grippy connectors that easily join and unjoin blocks. Haba toys are so well made that this block set has gone through all three of my children and still looks like new. I only recently convinced them to let me box it up to put away for my future grandchildren. This toy is destined to be a treasured family heirloom.
