So when Dan and I made the decision to expand our family, we decided that while the kids would have some electronic toys, we would focus more on the classics and allowing our children to enjoy being creative, discovering the world through hands-on play, and well...just allowing them to be kids!
For this reason, I have been a longtime fan of the amazing children's manufacturer, HABA. They make high-quality children's toys that stimulate the mind, the senses and imagination. They carry toys not only for infants and toddlers, but for school-aged children as well. And all of their products are lovingly designed by experts who believe that developing a child's mind through play can be fun. In the US, the company’s ecommerce site sells its own products and those of companies it distributes at www.habausa.com. Since HABA is comprised of mainly German and European branded toys, you won't find them in mass retailers. These items are sold online, as well as at hundreds of selected boutiques throughout the country.
Recently, I received a press release with exciting news about one of my favorite children's companies, HABA. It said: "Direct from the land of little wonders, HABA is proud to be the exclusive US distributor of Lilliputiens, the land of little wonders. And like the proud Belgian mothers who created this delightful line of small, fairytale rattles, puppets and squeakers, HABA is equally proud to re-introduce this beloved line to North American babies and toddlers."
Now what exactly are Lilliputiens? (Don't worry...I hadn't heard of this line either!) Here is a bit of info about this enchanting brand :

Our Review of Romeo the Well Fed Toad :
As you can see, there is also a soft mirror on Romeo's belly for added stimulation. My toddlers loved peering at their own faces on the frog's tummy.
Here are a few photos of Sophie and Xander enjoying their new Lilliputiens pal!
Anyway, I would definitely recommend the Lilliputiens line from HABA. These toys are truly magical, and whisk children away into a world of make-believe and wonder.
