German toy manufacturer HABA embraces an ethos inspired by the fact that children absolutely love playing with toys. The fact that children remain blissfully unaware of how this stimulates their development, allows key life skills to be fostered without any sense of pressure. A true “Inventor for inquisitive minds”, HABA toys encourage exploration, discovery and achievement in one way or another, be it through touching, seeing, hearing, smelling or tasting.
HABA has made it a mission to inspire and support children in their development. As they nurture social, fine motor and communication skills, HABA toys and games allow children to take delight in learning whilst always doing so at age-appropriate levels.
The thoughtfully designed, innovative toys and games are created to encourage learning at each stage of childhood. The products are made with the highest craftsmanship and materials available. Products go through a rigorous design process where every item is researched and tested. Impeccably sourced sustainable materials are used to create high quality products that will stand the test of time.
But HABA’s eco credentials go way beyond the simple sourcing of sustainable materials. As the first German toy manufacturer to pass the Öko-Audit (Eco Audit) in 1999, they have continued to lead the charge by embracing environmentally sympathetic approaches to all aspects of their business. From manufacturing processes to transportation logistics and the preservation of wildlife at their headquarters, HABA’s proactive involvement in making the world a better place for our children is a way of life that remains second nature to the whole HABA family.

These toys are important for kids of all ages. They provide a way to learn about the world, oneself, and teach children how to realize their full potential in life. Toys such as figurines or character story books enhance imagination and creativity by teaching children about society’s systems. Building blocks and number puzzles inspire education through hands-on play, which is vital for young minds to develop motor skills and spatial reasoning skills that will help them with higher level learning tasks in the future.
Games and puzzles for children provide a range of educational benefits, including: developing your child’s hand-eye coordination; fine motor skills through manipulating pieces or shapes; memory recall through building towers or fitting together pieces to make a whole; and educational benefits like learning the alphabet or numbers.
The benefits of educational toys are endless and we strongly believe every child should have them to get a head start on learning!
