#3: Demands Quality
HABA is the manufacturer of high-quality toys and games for kids of all ages that parents trust worldwide. Small children have twice as much fun with the Zookeeper Sorting Box! Just like in a real zoo, within every vivarium there is a slide: If pushed down, only the half wood shapes fit through the opening. If pushed upward, the opening is large enough for the whole wood shape. This is fun because as children play, they can pretend to feed the animals while becoming more familiar with color and shape recognition. MSRP: $34.99. Available online at www.habausa.com.
