Love love LOVE our Haba toys. We were given one at a baby shower and are slowly growing our collection. They are sweet and beautiful beech wood rattles, teethers and gripping toys from Germany. Saxon loves grabbing on to them and I feel safe having him gnaw on them while he begins to teethe. While we still have some plastic toys in the house, I don't want him chewing on lots of plastic stuff at this stage. I highly recommend these toys for gifts and for your own little person. Our personal favorites so far are the happy sun (the nubby rays are perfect for little mouths) and the round rainbow rattle.
