There’s always excitement when kids tip over a basket full of Haba blocks. Kids just know (along with everyone else) something good is coming.

True to form, something good always comes from building with classic building blocks - a high rise apartment complex, a mountain peak, a zoo, a castle, a parking lot, a tunnel, a bridge, a football field, a barnyard, a race track, a staircase, a swimming pool, an igloo…Every family benefits from a set of high quality, basic building blocks.

We’re in the toy business. We’ve heard the stories. 99.9% of the time - building blocks become family heirloom toys. Please be choosy about which building blocks you choose. Be picky. You will have them for a long, long, long time. Trust us.

Haba blocks are favorites with many of our customers. Known for being outstanding as high quality, classic building blocks, Haba blocks have quite a reputation. Here’s why:

  • The quality is superb
  • The shapes are beautiful and vary widely
  • Beechwood is lovely to touch and look at
  • Many blocks make for amazing structures
  • There is a refreshing, natural feeling to smoothly sanded, untreated wooden blocks
  • Well-balanced blocks with adequate weight are superb for constructing
  • Block size is substantial, unlike the size of some other block sets
  • Children and adults can build and play together

  • Hardwood blocks can withstand drops and crashes without damage

    Best educational wooden blocks!
    Posted 8/6/2013 by LL

    The Haba block set is of great quality. I would say that they are the best educational wooden blocks that we have ever owned with the exception of Kapla blocks(similar to Citiblocs). I like that the blocks came in a nice box with a handle and when I opened it they were clean. The quality of the blocks were also great with no sharp or rough edges. I was pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful canvas bag with a printed image, for storing all the blocks. I would recommend this set to any parent. The entire family plays with it-ages 3,9,13 and 39. A great addition to these blocks is the Haba Motley World which adds another dimension of play.

    We love these! A wonderful first set for my niece(3) and nephew(1). They will certainly enjoy these for many years to come, and we can continuously add to their set.

    A rating of Basic Building Blocks - Extra Large Starter Set
    Posted 8/15/2012 by Elizabeth Barber

    Though I purchased these for my youngest, they are a hit with all of my kids--ages 6-11. Classic blocks with new, inventive shapes as well. Really pleased with this purchase. Hours of creative play ahead. My 6-year-old commented on how things made in Germany are better than those made in China. Very true. We also purchased the vehicle set and the two sets together make a nice pair.
