Love, play, learn with Hape & their collection of railways
Four kids and a few tonnes of discarded plastic later, I've developed a deep appreciation for long-lasting toys that foster a love of learning through play. Gone are the days when my kids could convince me that a moment of happiness was worth the $2 dollar shop price tag, I am a quality toy convert and there’s no going back! One family favourite without a doubt are Hape toys. With their huge selection of sustainably produced toys, Hape understands the value of producing high quality, long lasting toys with a focus on child development at every age and stage.
How good is that feeling of pulling out a quality toy that has been intentionally put in storage just waiting for the next baby to be old enough to enjoy it. And even better is the joy of watching older siblings teach the younger ones how to use it!
One such toy that has stood the test of time in our home is the humble train set. It’s a beautiful set that was bought for my now 12 year old when he was a toddler and is still being enjoyed all these years later by baby number four in his toddler years. It may have even had the power to draw the 12 year old back into the throws of imaginative play with his younger brother, because who can resist a beautiful train set!
It’s no accident that Hape toys are easy to have in your home long term and can be found in many early childhood education centres. Their trademark environmentally friendly materials and techniques used in the production of their toys has been thoroughly researched and extensively thought out. Hape seeks out people who bring a new sensibility to their production processes, who put thought into how children at various developmental stages will respond to their toys, thereby ensuring there is an opportunity to learn through play.
Start your family on a journey of learning and development through play with Hape toys today! Check out their beautiful train sets and accessories on offer, your kids will thank you for it and who knows, maybe their kids will one day too!
