Haba Educational Toys

by Tested_to_Destruction

Haba is one of the oldest toy makers in existence. They started their business in 1838, with wooden bricks, and have since become a global trusted bran name.

To date, Haba's blocks and bricks are still one of their most popular products today. For years, their quality craftsmanship has assured parents that their toys are safe for children, especially babies, and this in part is what makes them such a trusted brand.

Over time, the company expanded their creations from baby toys, teethers, and blocks to more complex toys, though their trademark is still their more basic creations. Most of their products are naturally germ-resistant, perfect for babies to put in their mouths, as well as being non-toxic due to their use of water-based paint.

This is what makes them safe for long-term use, clearly designed with baby’s welfare in mind, and another aspect of what drives their continued popularity.

Animal Upon Animal

This is a much-loved game for ages 4 years and up, therefore it's popular with adults as well as with kids. Players can follow the rules, make up their own games, or simply enjoy stacking the beautiful little animal shapes.

The set is composed of seven wooden animal types with 4 pieces each. Played by the rules, the game allows for 2 to 4 players, with each player receiving one of each animal. According to the roll of the die, the player either stacks an animal or lets someone else do so. Whoever knocks the tiles off is the loser and whoever has stacked all his animal pieces is the winner.

The varied animal shapes and colors make stacking much more fun than a regular set of blocks. It helps with fine motor development and animal identification too. As a children's game it encourages a healthy kind of competition among young kids, and it makes for an enjoyable inter-generational game.

With this set of fantasy blocks, babies can utilize their developing fine motor skills and imagination while stacking the pretty shapes. The set is composed of 26 wooden blocks with unique shapes and colorful designs. Compared to other blocks, the shapes in this set are much more interesting and fun to play with.

The beech wood and non-toxic food dye used in making Haba toys make them safe for babies to chew on. Even though the set is rated for children ages 1-4, it would be a good idea to set aside some of the smaller pieces for use when baby is closer to 3.
