HABA produces their wooden toys at its site in Bad Rodach, Franconia and uses woods from sustainable forestry. Suppliers are PEFC* certified. The natural and mechanical characteristics of beech and maple wood, in combination with a design of clear colours and shapes are the most suitable for a good toy. When it comes to applying colours, we only use water-based ecological solvent-free lacquers. Multiple lacquer layers render the surface extremely resistant to humidity and wear and tear, allowing the toy to be taken from the hand to the mouth, at any time. The quality of the lacquers is insured, apart from independent controls, by the long-term partnership built up with certified suppliers.
