HABA Wooden Baby Toys now in Malaysia

The famous HABA wooden baby toys are now available in Malaysia, and as such also accessible to the neighbouring countries such as Brunei, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, etc.
Why HABA Wooden Baby Toys?

The short answer to that would be “Because they are trusted and enjoyed by families throughout the world for over 70 years.”

There are several reasons why HABA wooden toys are gaining popularity among parents:

Made from natural material. Haba wooden baby toys are made from natural beech wood and therefore safe to chew on.

Make a random trip to the mall these days, chances are many toy shelves are being lined up with plastic toys. Not that all plastic toys are unsafe, but with ever increasing concern about the safety of the child, parent these days are making it a point to check if the plastic toys are BPA-free, PVC-free, Phthalates-free, and lead-free.

To remove the potential problem and uncertainty, toys made from natural wood are a good alternative solution.

Feeling uneasy about your child chewing and grinding away on plastic toys?

Toys made from natural wood are good alternative solution.

Made from non-porous hard wood. HABA wooden toys are mostly made from beech wood which is considered hard wood. (To learn more about beech wood, please check here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beech) Toys made of soft wood when being chewed upon, can easily splinter and probably hurt the child. So what you want to be looking for are the non-porous hard woods, like the one used by HABA.

Durable. The wooden toys by HABA are incredibly durable, ideal for parents expecting a high play value from the toys they purchase. Buy once, play forever.

Made of single wood piece. The individual component of HABA wooden toys are made of single wood piece. Not made from laminated or jointed wood. Therefore, no worry about the wood chipping/splinter and the type of harmful glue/chemical used to join the laminated wood together.

Feeling uneasy about your child chewing on laminated wood which may chip or splinter?

Wooden toys made from single solid wood pieces are better alternative.

Non-toxic water based stain (not painted). HABA wooden toys are colourfully stained (not painted) with non-toxic water based stain instead of harmful chemicals. Therefore there is no worry if the toys are being chewed upon by your baby or child.


No battery required. HABA wooden baby toys do not require battery. They can be played anytime, anywhere. Simple toys which inspire creativity, they are environmentally friendly. Leaving a better planet for the child to live on.

Educational Toys. These days parent tends to give their smart phone or touchpad to their children to play silently in one corner and assume they enjoy the games. If such is your normal practice, you may miss the chance to provide your children a better childhood experience. Constant staring at the screen over prolonged duration may be bad for the eyesight. There are also concern about exposing the baby and child to the electromagnetic waves generated by the electronic gadgets.

Worry that your child might be over-stimulated by Power Rangers or Transformers?

Why not provide your children with something natural, sensible, mental teasing, inspire creativity and spend time playing with them to help develop their cognitive power, mental capabilities and encouraging interaction, foster teamwork and leadership skills?

With clear shapes, unique colourful design and gentle rattling sound, HABA wooden toys offer a lot of multi sensory benefits that enriches both sides of the brain – the right and left hemispheres, often associated with logical and creative thinking.

HABA wooden baby toys are cleverly designed to inspire creativity and imaginative play.

Product safety. The health of your children and the environment matters! That is why they use water-based paints and varnished.

All their products are subject to the European Toy Safety Standard EN71. The EN71 toy safety specification is two folds. It specifies the mechanical stress which the toy must be able to withstand and it determines the chemical requirements.

In the regularly performed strain test, all moving parts which are assembled together are tested. The clutching toys must be immersed in distilled water, 4 times for 4 minutes at a time. In between they have a break for 10 minutes.

Starting with the torque test, the clutching toy is being turned left and right. A torque of 0.34 Newton meter is build up and held over 10 seconds. HABA even exceeded this guideline and apply a torque of 0.36 Newton meter, comparable with 3 kilograms of weight. An 18 months old child can exert a force of approximately 2 kilograms.

Even during the pulling test, there is no reason for malicious glee. According to the regulation, the joint between cord and wooden parts must withstand a pulling force of 90 Newton, equivalent of 9 kilograms. At Haba they tested the load with 100 Newton throughout.

During the shock test, a weight of 1 kilogram is being dropped onto the weakest part of the toy from 10 centimeters height. No problem at all for HABA wooden toys. Finally, the quality assurance agent from HABA would drop the clutching toy on its head 5 times from the height of 80 centimeters.

The process is documented in the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nqp1f_BZpM4
The ability of this great European toy company in illustrating and explaining their product safety indicates their technical ability in manufacturing high quality toys.
