Don't you wish all the best kids toys were sold in one place? Did you know a place like that already exists?! I recently found it and I'm warning you, it's easy to get lost there, daydreaming about all the ways your baby, toddler, or kid would play with these imaginative, top quality toys. This place is Oompa!
We received the Haba Walker Wagon and Allez-Hopp Clutching Baby Toy for review with our 8 month old Baby T. All I can say is "Wow!" I certainly understand why people praise German toys so much, or German products in general. The workmanship is outstanding, it is top quality perfection. It stands apart, far apart from toys made in China (or many other countries for that matter). The price tag is $143.99, which may seem pretty steep - but when you compare it to similar German made products it is worth it. Baby T is so eager to start walking, he is learning to hold his balance right now and the Haba Walker Wagon came just at the right time! Here are all the reasons we love it:
- Made of wood and has rubber tires
- Doesn't turn, nearly impossible to tip over for a baby
- Gender neutral toy
- Can be passed on from generation to generation
- Open ended - they'll always think of new ways to play with it
One other thing we love about toys at Oompa and especially all the Haba toys they carry is that most of them are gender neutral. I love that! I am very much anti pink-everything for girls and blue-everything for boys (not to mention mostly plastic). Oompa carries many brands that are timeless, classic, yet modern. We love their line of Uncle Goose items, Under the Nile, Tegu, and GeoToys. Plus you get Free Shipping everyday on orders over $65! They have everything from balance bikes to puzzles and musical instruments. Dreaming here for sure, but I wouldn't mind getting rid of our [plastic or Chinese] toys and replacing them with these fabulous finds at Oompa!
