About HABA

Premium Kids Educational Toys


Everything we do is based on child growth, development, and happiness. We believe that children are more important than anything else, so everything we create is designed to make a child’s eyes light up and help them have fun while learning and growing.

HABA USA emphasizes social responsibility and environmental sustainability. The toys we sell are designed to last for years, keeping trash out of landfills, and are made from wood that is sustainably sourced. And we know that our employees and partners are among our greatest resources. We aim for success and fairness in everything we do.

A Family Tradition

For the Habermaass family, the focus of all their activities is on children and their families. That is why the sustainable use of resources has been part of the history since its foundation, and Klaus Habermaass' children are continuing this tradition.

HABA USA is the exclusive American distributor of HABA toys and games. In 1980, Habermaass Corporation, Inc. purchased Skaneateles Handicrafters, a small wooden toy company in Central New York State accredited for making the first wooden toy trains in the United States in the mid-1930s. Skaneateles Handicrafters became TC Timber and continued to manufacture wooden trains until 2002. Today, HABA USA is part of the HABA FAMILYGROUP and is still located in Skaneateles, NY.
