Hape Toys are a German toy manufacturer who not only pride themselves on the design and quality of their toys, but also on their eco and sustainable ethos.
Hape Toys’s founder, Peter Handstein believes firmly in the power of learning through play. He combined this with his love of nature, along with his beliefs in social responsibility, ecology and innovation, to start Hape Toys in 1986. The company has now grown to be one of the largest suppliers of sustainable wooden and bamboo toys in the world.
Here at Babi Pur, we think Hape Toys are just brilliant. They are bold, bright, colourful, tough, inventive and educational – all the things we look for in sustainable toys for kids. And some of our favourite Hape Toys items are the fantastic Hape Wooden Toy Kitchens and play food. Role play and make-believe are great to fire little imaginations, and your budding chefs can learn about healthy eating and good food at the same time!
We currently stock three different Hape Play Kitchens; the Hape Cook’n’Serve, with it’s two hobs, oven, utensil hooks above the hob, handy pull-out counter and a chalk board on the reverse side for chef’s notes and daily specials.
And to add a splash of colour to your make-believe wooden toy kitchen, then how about the Hape Gourmet Play Kitchen? There are loads of things for children to get up to with this Hape Play Kitchen, from boiling an egg, baking a cake, adding a splash of sauce and finishing by washing and tidying up. This play kitchen feels strong and sturdy and there are loads of added extras that give real attention to detail – like a hanging rail for a tea towel on one side and blue and red coloured taps for hot and cold! The Hape Gourmet Play Kitchen is available in green or white.
And to go with your Hape Play Kitchen, your budding little chefs will need some food and accessories to go along with it. Hape Toys have thought of everything, from a gorgeous home-made pizza to an adorable sushi set and a healthy green salad bowl, so children really will get a flavour of international food!
And once your little chefs have cooked up a storm, they’ll need to work out the bill, so children will love this Hape Play Till, complete with buttons, a scanner, a card machine, colourful abacus and wooden coins and notes. This Play Till is gorgeous, and is a perfect addition to any make-believe restaurant kitchen.
