Haba is a German toy manufacturer founded in 1938, and based in Bavaria.

Since they began, Haba have been known as makers of high-quality and innovative wooden toys – and the company motto is “Inventor for Inquisitve Minds” – how cool is that?

Haba make a huge range of wooden toys, including many types of wooden building blocks, but in this review we just want to introduce you to the fantastical world of Fantasy and Colourful City Building Blocks!

These gorgeous, brightly coloured blocks with funky shapes and designs are suitable for children from around 18 months old.

They are beautifully made from European beech wood from sustainable forestry, and the colours are applied using water-based, eco-friendly and solvent-free lacquers.

Multiple layers of lacquer make the surface super resistant to humidity, which in turn makes them naturally anti-bacterial.

The blocks are wonderfully smooth and safe for small hands! 

Although most of the blocks are quite large, be aware that some of the sets do have the odd smaller piece that you might want to remove before very small children start playing with them in earnest.

All the blocks in these sets fit together, so they can take over the floor of your play room or even the entire house!

Building Blocks are Learning Toys

Wooden building blocks have been around for hundreds of years and are a classic, engaging, and educational activity for children of all ages – and adults love building with them too!

Building with blocks naturally teaches children concepts such as shape, colour, size, symmetry, and balance – and they expand on your child’s fine motor-skills. 

Playing with building blocks is open-ended – there really aren’t any rules – and these sets of Haba blocks are so colourful and unusual in design, they will be sure to enhance your child’s creativity and open up the world of fantasy and imagination!

  1. How cool are these blocks? I’ve got a two year old who would love to play with these! I myself might actually like to play with these with her haha! I always played with blocks growing up and it would be great for my children to experience that as well.

    I’ve never heard of these blocks though. Thanks for bringing them to my attention! They’re quite mesmerizing!

    Awesome site too my the way! I love your logo!z

  2. WOW!! I just love these wooden building blocks from Haba. I must admit I had not heard of Haba before I read your article.

    The first thing that struck me was how colourful the blocks are and they seem like they are built to engage and fascinate children and even adults!

    My children are grown up, however, I know a few young children who would love these wooden blocks and you have solved my problem of what to buy them for their birthday!

    I think I might just have to show them how to play with these blocks! 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh! I am so excited that I found this post! I used to be a preschool teacher and know how hard it can be to find quality products especially when it comes to blocks.

    What I really love is that they are eco-friendly and naturally anti-bacterial. This is especially good for the younger ages that like to put stuff in their mouths.

    I also really like that all of the blocks from the different set fit together. This makes the building possibilities endless!

    Building blocks are great for cognitive development and I highly recommend that every toddler has some. By the looks of it and the information gathered from your article, I would say that these blocks would be a great buy!

    Thank you for the great article!

  4. Wow, what a great site here for kids entertainment and fantasies.
    I am always eager to buy my kids some beautiful toys to play with but i lack a good knowledge on which one is good for what purpose but you have made that clear enough that i now understand a lot about toys unlike before, i would just buy randomly.

    You know these toys most at times we just look at them like ordinary toys that they are but the thing is they can help build our children professionally. Especially the Haba fantasy blocks and the Haba Sevilla can give a child building knowledge such that, the child can be playing and learning as well and before you know it, the child is a builder and if that is worked upon, the child can become an architect just from toys.

    That’s why i like toys and most of the time, when my child is playing with his toys, i will stay back and take a look at him. I might find something to develop you know.
    He might be creative though. Its good and fun you know.
    Anyway, thanks for such good posts like yours.
    Keep up the good work.
