Ingenious Creative Educational Supplies

Children have a natural inquisitiveness about the world around them and each new discovery they make is both exciting and engaging. Early Years education is about harnessing the enthusiasm of young, enquiring minds and actively promoting children’s desire to learn new things.

HABA Education is primarily focused on the holistic development of children aged between 0 and 8 years old and its comprehensive product range encourages multi sensory learning whilst ensuring the specific needs and challenges of educational teachers are fully catered for. The indoor and outdoor selection of fun and creative toys, games and equipment have been carefully designed to inspire children to want to learn.

Spark Curiousity and Understanding

All children deserve toys and games that are unique in terms of concept, design, play value and developmental encouragement. HABA supports educators by helping give children the freedom to learn through the simple pleasures of exploration and play. By developing a portfolio of HABA’s unique learning resources, those working in education will benefit from the use of products that have been thoughtfully crafted by tapping into ‘up to the minute’ educational insights and over 80 years of market leading knowledge and expertise.

Our Vision...

… is for children to grow up in a supportive environment which encourages them to unfold and develop their inherent talents. Social surroundings have a profound influence on this, firstly at home and then at school. When children are given a safe and caring space in which to grow, their joy of learning is nurtured and their educational roots can establish and thrive.

Quality & Design

When developing products, it is vital to focus on the evolving needs of educators and learners. HABA consults experts in academia and those working in the educational sector as well as conducting their own observational research. All results are discussed in brainstorming sessions with the company’s design team and a whole host of creative ideas are generated. HABA products are based on a philosophy centred around carefully reasoned design, high functionality and educational relevance.

Safety & Sustainability

To ensure the safety of design concepts and final product creation, a quality and safety team works collaboratively with the design team. Non toxic raw materials and innovative design are used to create products that are completely safe for children.
