Hape – The Toy Company Who Really Cares
Who Is Hape?
Founded in 1986, Hape Toys are not only one of the world’s largest producers of toys made from sustainable materials, there are also many other reasons we think they’re a wonderful company.
Hape Toys believe that the future begins and belongs to our children. It is our duty to leave them with infinite possibilities, not unsolvable problems. Hape toys are created to inspire play, learning, and exploration of the world we live in.
Hape has helped rural communities create sustainable local economies and has also built 3 schools in rural Guizhou. Providing opportunities for playing and learning for over 3000 children and their families. They are currently building a world-class Early Childhood Education Center and Environmental Development facility in Gongtong.
Hape kindly sent us over a couple of their fantastic toys so we could see for ourselves just how brilliant they are! They have an amazingly large selection to choose from, but the train sets have to be our favourite. Not only can you buy different train tracks, you can also buy different add-ons (pictured below) and even train tables too. So, the possibilities are endless.
The quality of these train sets is incredible. They have the vintage wooden train set style with a twist of more modern, interactive sensory parts to keep your child’s mind engaged and let their imaginations run free.
For example, the Hape Jungle Train Journey Set lets your little one guide the elephant and lion friends through an overgrown jungle and over crinkly tropical land.
Hape “We Care We Share” Project
For each Hape 30th anniversary block set purchased, one toy will be donated to a child in need. Hape donate toys to children in China, Colombia, India, Syria and Zimbabwe. On April 21, ‘Hape Love Ambassador’ donated toys to 700 Syrian and Afghanistan children at the Child-Friendly Space in Berlin.
