What It IsHaba is a wonderful German toy company known for its high quality, classic playthings. The toys help kids engage in imaginative, open-ended play in traditional role play categories.
Perhaps one of the most classic of these is food play. Kids love to pretend to cook, shop and serve food—after all it's one of the activities they see their parents doing weekly, if not more often. Haba's toy food items are great for engaging kids in pretend play, and the diversity of the play goes way beyond the typical or the expected.
Whip up breakfast in a hurry with the Fried Egg. Simply "crack" the metal eggshell to release the fabric fried egg inside. (Of course it's not completely realistic; it's a toy.) This is great for helping kids understand cause and effect, as well as developing motor skills.
Children may want to open their very own gelato stands after playing with the deliciously sweet Venezia Ice Cream Cones. The set comes with two cones and two reversible scoops of ice cream. Tired of vanilla? Just flip the scoop over for strawberry! The Venezia Ice Cream Cones are made from polyester.
Give kids a head start on picking out vegetables while shopping with the Shopping Net Vegetables set. The wooden veggies (two carrots, a radish, two tomatoes, two mushrooms, and two peppers) are brightly colored and come in a convenient mesh bag. The veggies are finished with non-toxic, child-friendly paints and lacquers.
