Haba's design intentions are simple, provide value and quality. They have a uniquely playful design that uses characters and colors that, for the most part, are non-gender specific. All of products are designed to grow with the child to ensure many years of family enjoyment.
HABA favors wood for many of their toys; wooden toys last for years and flatter the hand. Their wooden baby clutching toys are still made in Germany using PEFC certified Beech and/or Maple; PEFC means the wooden toys are made from timbers that are reforested. Many of the wooden toddler toys are produced in China from similar materials. They use safe, non-toxic, water based stains and lacquers on the products.
