Hot Gift: HABA Pushing Animal Toy

I am sure that you guys know what I mean when I say that kid's toys are just not made like they used to be. I remember getting a toy for Christmas when I was little, and it lasting me until I was too big for it, and then I would pass it on to my nieces and nephews. Today, I am happy if a toy makes it a couple months after my kids open it. Things are just so cheaply made these days, and I hate feeling like I am spending my money on, well, trash!

I have finally found a company to solve these problems for me! Maukilo is a website for high quality children's toys, owned by HABA, the "king" of wooden kids toys! I have been so impressed by the selection of baby and toddler toys on the Maukilo website. The best part? These are super high quality, last-forever, European toys! I mean really, take a look at their logo!? Buy Once, Play Forever?!?! Sounds good to me!

We had the opportunity to get acquainted with the new wonderful push toys from HABA! We received  the new HABA Pushing Animal Chris Croak, the adorable frog! 

As soon as I took this toy out of the box, I knew that Bean was going to love it.  I loved the solid wood design. You could definitely tell that this was a well-made toy. It was sturdy, but not too heavy for little guys to push around. Bean loved the bright colors too, and started saying "Oooohhh", as soon as he saw it! I was afraid that he might be a little too big for this toy, but after checking out the Maukilo website, I saw that it was recommended for ages 18 months and up, to help with balance and motor skills. So we were right on track!

These push toys are so cute! Each one has a different base.. There is Chris Croak (a frog, of course!), Flapping Frank (butterfly), Cackling Cathy (duck), and Tumble Tum (clown)! Check out the cute clown, he's my favorite!! 

Bean has really enjoyed this toy! He loves running through the house, full speed, pushing his little froggie around! It doesn't make a ton of noise (THANK YOU!), but still makes enough of a click-clack sound to keep him entertained! He loves watching the wheels turning, and the bright colors are so cute too! I have some adorable pics of Bean to show you guys of him playing with his toy, but they will have to wait until my dear hubby gets home, since he has the phone with all the pictures on it :) But not to worry, you will see them soon!

I really love the high quality construction of these wooden toys. Best overall part, for me? No batteries! I am SO sick of batteries, we can't keep enough of them, they are so expensive, etc... So, any toy that is just a toy to *PLAY* with, is right up my alley! Thank you so much to Maukilo for the opportunity to add such a wonderful toy to our collection!
