ABOUT HABA

It all began in 1939 in Bad Rodach, Germany, with finely polished, colorful wooden toys, that were "finely sanded and polished wonderfully smooth, just right for tender children's hands," as the first catalogue emphasized. Today these blocks are still part of our product palate. But the factory for fine wooden toys has been transformed into "the producer of inventive playthings for inquisitive minds."

All products in the HABA range have one thing in common: our attention to detail makes each item special and unique. HABA wants to playfully support children's development, make their lives happier, more exciting, and full of the delight of discovery: to put it simply, to make their world a little more child-friendly.

A wide variety of HABA toys and games have been honored with awards for exceptional design. Since 1993, no fewer than six HABA games received the "Children's game of the Year" award.

        My baby girl cannot get enough of these blocks. We received them as a gift when she was 6 months old; and, they have been among her favorite toys ever since.

        Comments about First Blocks:

        My son likes these blocks and they're very cute and colorful, however the small blue square with the bell in it has design issues. The bell is held in place by a small stick (the size of a toothpick). My son was playing with the square and the stick fell out as well as the bell- both are choking hazards. My son was not playing with the block set aggressively, he was mildly shaking the square to ring the bell. [...]

          Comments about First Blocks:

          I got these 4 years ago for my middle child. He found them to be interesting and full of options. I hung onto them and now my third, a girl, is equally in love with them. They've held up perfectly and they're delightful to have on the toy shelf. I keep them in a little basket so that the child can use just the set together and not lose them to a bigger toy bin.

          Comments about First Blocks:

          I've just gotten this toy out for my 8month old who is newly at the build/knock down stage. He loves to pick up the (well sized) pieces and either teethe on them (no lead paint) or clack them together.
          You can't actually see in the picture but one of the rectangular blocks has four colored beads in it that a wee one can move (slightly; they are encapsulated) or feel, and the blue one has a 'mirror' which is a huge source of delight to my son. The cube has a wee bell in it.
          I like the bright colors, and my three year old likes them too, so no age limit.
          Haba makes great and durable toys - yes they're a tad more expensive but you're guaranteed no lead (safe to teethe) and you'll have them for a while.
          Enjoy!
