Although December is a couple of months away, I know it will come quickly. I've already started thinking about Christmas shopping, and have a few things bought already! When it comes to finding my kids high quality gifts, I know I can always count on HABA. With Dolls, games and play sets lovingly crafted and affordably priced, HABA makes cherished presents that will be enjoyed now and in years to come. Not only is the quality top-notch, but I appreciate that we will never need a charger, USB Cable or Wi-Fi Hot spot to use their toys. Kids love classic toys that encourage them to use their imagination and get creative. It's neat as a parent to watch which is why I always enjoy learning about new HABA products.
For those who aren't familiar, HABA is known for handsome, high quality baby and children's toys as well as their children's games and dolls. The company's products are always seen in national parenting and lifestyle magazines plus they've won nearly every prestigious German and American toy award.
Browsing through their website, I was drawn to the My First Play World toy and knew it would be something my boys would love! I was thrilled to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review it!
When our My First Play World arrived, I was happy to find that once again, HABA did not disappoint! The quality is superb! They have even kept moms in mind by making the play set fold up into a handy carrying case. I greatly appreciate this, as it makes it easy for us to keep all of the pieces together and easy for the kids to tote around wherever they're playing!
I was impressed with how many play figures were included. They are all designed with such care and even stand on their own! There are 2 firefighters, 1 fire engine, 1 cord as water hose, 1 cat, 1 tree, 1 ladder, 1 fire hydrant, 3 fire game counters, 3 fire brigade game counters, set of game instructions for 18 months and up.
One of the neatest things though, is when the carrying case is folded down and the fire brigade is open. It leaves endless room for the imagination and fosters a child's language skills through play. Kaden got so excited when he saw the playset. It's a really nice size and he didn't even need any help...he just began playing! It was fun to watch as he took the firetruck to put out the fire by a tree, and to help a cat that was stuck on top of the building. The sky is the limit with a toy like this. One day he's on a mission to put out a building fire, and the next he's busy putting out tree fires.
Even Caysen gets in on the play and drives the firetruck around while Caysen plays with some of the figures inside the firehouse. I love that it's a toy they can use together.
Since this allows for such open-ended play, the boys don't seem to get bored with it. They come back day after day ready to play again. It's so neat to watch and just another reason why I am such a fan of HABA and their great toys!
