Haba Toys

The German toy manufacturer Haba are one of our favourite brands here at Babi Pur. Haba Toys were established as a small manufacturer in 1938 that has since grown to become one of the leading producers and suppliers of wooden toys for babies and children.

HABA_Logo

Haba toys are particularly renowned for their building blocks; many of our customers grew up with Haba blocks in their toy box and so a Haba toy for their children is like a trip down memory lane!

Haba pride themselves on the quality of their toys; all of their wooden toys are still designed and made in Germany, supporting local families, businesses and economies, and working to strict environmental standards too – using wood from only sustainable German forests.

Here at Babi Pur we’ve got a great range of Haba toys. Check our earlier blog post about their fabulous wooden clutch toys for babies, but we also stock loads of different toys for older children.  These beautiful beechwood building blocks to create a marble run are ever popular, and how about this musical twist on an old favourite – a set of building blocks that play musical notes as the marbles pass over them!

And to start your budding builder on their fun building blocks journey, how about this adorable Master Builder Set for younger children? They’ll love the bright colours, different shapes and cheeky faces, and they’ll be creating their very own fantasy land in no time!

And it’s not just building blocks that Haba toys are great at either. We stock a gorgeous range of Haba play food, that will really spark imaginations and get kids interested in food.  There are brightly coloured fruit and veg like oranges, grapes and carrots, a delicious baguette or this adorable box of cakes for a sumptuous treat! Haba’s range of play food are made from different materials to help keep children interested – there are wooden fruit, fabric chickens and super cute soft and squidgy ice-cream cones.
