Hape boosts toy offering with new Railway and George Luck Puzzles

Marbel’s toy brand Hape is expanding its toy offering, with the introduction of the new Railway and George Luck collection.

Each of the wooden train sets gives children the chance to develop and enhance their sets with a variety of engaging play pieces.

The sets boast jungle faces, reflective mirrors, rattles and crinkly textures for younger train lovers to enjoy, as well as other musical features including a tambourine and xylophone.

“The Hape Railway is an exciting launch for Hape and Marbel. It has all the hallmarks of becoming a classic line, not only is it engaging and exciting for the whole family to use, it’s very educational, which means children can really develop some core skills, just whilst playing," said Christoph Bettin, director of Marbel.

"Learning is at the foremost of Hape’s philosophy and it’s something we are strongly aligned to.”

Elsewhere, the toy brand is introducing its George Luck Puzzles, which have been cut from singular or multiple layers of crafted wood.

Each puzzle uses a realistic range of brightly coloured pieces, and have been deigned for kids aged two years and up.

Bettin added: “The George Luck Puzzles are very visually appealing, bright and full of character, it’s a range that will really grab a child’s attention, whilst helping a child learn, explore and have fun.

"We are really pleased to be associated with these and believe they will become a very successful line.”
