The HABA brand is the brainchild of German man Eugen Habermaass. Rich in history, the family-owned and run brand has been around since the early 1930s. (read more)
It was initially run by Eugen and his wife Luise. They first presented themselves at a toy fair in 1950 and the company continued to grow. Sadly Eugen passed away in 1955. The brand went on to be run by Luise and their son Klaus, who had an apprenticeship in carpentry. While she slowly bowed out of the company, Luise continued to offer support and advice to her son right up until her death in 2003 at age 97. Today, the HABA Group continues to be family-run. With third-generation Habermaass’, Sabine, Heike and Volker at the helm. They currently employ over 2,000 staff.
What is the philosophy behind the brand?

What materials does HABA use?
