Within the last couple of weeks, my girls have started going through toy catalogs and circling what they want for Christmas. It will be here before we know it, and I really need to get started on my Christmas shopping! Have you started your shopping yet? If not, and if you are looking for ideas for the children in your life, then Eighty MPH Mom is here to help with our 2016 Holiday Gift Guide!
My first gift guide post of the holiday season is for some great new toys from HABA. HABA is a German company that makes high-quality toys designed to encourage creativity, imagination, and desire to play. There are toys available for babies, toddlers, young children, and even games for teenagers! My girls have some toys and games made by HABA that they love, so I was excited to see what HABA has come out with now. We received items from the Little Friends Dolls & Accessories line – Little Friends Gym & Ballet Studio, Little Friends Bendy Doll Eva, Little Friends Bendy Doll Lukas, and Little Friends Play Set Yoga.
My youngest daughter was so excited to receive the Little Friends Gym & Ballet Studio. She could not wait for me to take the wooden pieces out of the box and put them together. They came together easily in no time, and she was ready to play! Of course, her play was not complete without the Little Friends Bendy Dolls and Little Friends Play Set Yoga. The dolls (Eva and Lukas) were the right size for her small hands (four inches tall), and they are made of soft flexible plastic so they can be moved and posed. The yoga set came with one mat, two floor pillows, one pillow roll, one ball, one hoop, and one towel – all very colorful and soft! Once everything was set up, Eva and Lukas were ready to participate in my daughter’s ballet and yoga classes!
The Little Friends Gym & Ballet Studio, Eva, Lukas, and yoga set were perfect for my daughter. I don’t know how many times I went into her room to see what she was doing – she was sitting and playing with the Little Friends Gym and Ballet Studio! She especially liked the mirror on the wall and the barre that she could move around. Eva and Lukas did a lot of stretching, barre work, and dancing around in their studio. My daughter also had to put on her own ballet clothes while playing. Of course, my other daughter joined in the fun as well, and it was nice that they each had a doll to play with!
