"Children do not play to learn, but grow through play." Peter Handstein Founder & CEO of Hape Holding AG
Hape Toys is one of the world’s largest producers of toys made from sustainable materials. Creatively designed and eco-friendly, all of the products meet, and more often, exceed the strictest international standards for quality and safety. From the beginning of the design process, through production and delivery, to the final unwrapping of the consumer packaging, Hape toys are a collaboration of global thinking and responsible ecology.
Learning is at the heart of Hape toys. Designed first and foremost for children, each product is developed to enhance a child’s developmental skills. What children see as fun, parents and educators recognize as age-appropriate learning basics; social, sensory, physical, and emotional skills. By loving play, children learn and develop their imagination and creativity, self-discovery, problem-solving, etc.
Using natural materials, water-based paints, and strict quality and safety standards make every Hape toy an investment kids will love and parents can trust.
