The core of Haba’s corporate philosophy is children. while its business is about making toys, it also places emphasis on protecting the environment for the next generation.
Haba’s wooden toys are made from sustainable beech wood and coloured with water-based, ecological solvent-free lacquers. Cut-outs from its production of children’s furniture are used to manufacture toys and off-cuts of waste wood used to fuel the factory.
Martin Nield, Haba’s UK manager, commented: “While the HABA name is still quite new to the UK, we have been delighted by the welcome received from UK consumers so far. Like their German neighbours, British parents are increasingly looking at environmental issues as well as quality and value for money when buying toys for their children.
”Sales of our toys have increased steadily in the last year and HABA has also recently received several prestigious awards, which further endorses our products and projected sales for 2010.”
Today, wooden toys are just a fraction of HABA’s catalogue of products for all ages including soft toys, outdoor toys, books, games and puzzles. There are numerous new products in the pipeline for spring and summer – visit www.haba.co.uk or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
