Neither culture, nor language, nor gender inhibits the intuitive process of play. All of Hape's products meet, and more often, exceed the strictest international standards for quality and safety. But behind the innovative designs and meticulous quality lies the even stronger ethos of Hape.
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.
As the world’s largest producer of wooden toys, Hape relies on the use of natural materials such as bamboo. Their toys take advantage of the special properties of this highly renewable material and plastic parts are durable enough to last for generations in order to encourage toys to be passed down rather than tossed out.
