The HABA world of books makes the little ones large

Our whole pedagogical expertise gained from decades of experience in the sector of babies’ and toddlers’ toys as well as in the game sector is included in the program of the HABA world of books which supports infants starting at birth. The focus is consciously put on children between 0 and 7 years for whom books are chosen and developed age appropriate and catered to their individual requirements.

The HABA bath, fabric and buggy books offer diverse reading material without letters though with many fascinating game effects to the smallest children. Children 12 months and older can try out various book equipment like touch-pages, puzzle pieces, slides or flaps included in our paperboard storybooks. The storybooks for children starting at 3 years offer a wide range of everyday topics, attractive illustrations and loveable characters having a high potential for children’s identification.

Non-fiction books which ideally complement the product lineup of the Terra Kids brand are another part of the HABA range of books. Children can put all their memories of the kindergarten on paper in our friends’ album which can be filled in, marked with a cross or colored out. The Creative Kids series offers even more space for creativity and gives the little artist the possibility to bring in their own ideas and simultaneously train the fine motor skills with lots of fun, corresponding to their level of development.
