HABA Bingo Animal Kids (GC Giveaway)
This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #42: Beth C!
When I think of the holidays, I think of toys. Lots and lots of toys. So what makes one toy stand out from another? For me it’s a product that’s well made, serves as an educational tool, and will provide hours of fun.
Look no further than www.Maukilo.com. The online retailer has a huge selection of heirloom-quality European and American designed toys from companies like Blabla, Holztiger, Plan Toys and, of course, HABA. Maukilo.com is actually owned by HABA, so they’re able to offer the largest selection (about 1,500!) of HABA products in the United States.
Big box stores just can’t offer the “wow” factor of a high-quality beautiful building block set, HABA’s newborn guardian angel or Baufix construction sets, a favorite in Europe. At Maukilo, toys are not only well made, but made to exceed safety standards. The toy store’s goal is to provide playthings that are made to last, so that any toy can withstand the test of time.
“In today’s throw-away world, it is refreshing,” Maukilo.com graciously explains, “to experience such a healthy demand for high quality, long lasting, and beautiful products. It is due to our loyal and enthusiastic customers that our website continues to grow and evolve.”
Once online, shoppers can browse for toys by theme: try pirates, bugs or dinosaurs. Or shop by category: pretend play, outdoor toys, and room décor. And bargain hunters will be delighted to see, yes, the outlet section where consumers can save 10-85% off – even on just-arrived merchandise! When in doubt, click on the 100 Bestsellers, already proven as the perfect toys by previous spoiling Aunties and Secret Santas!
Where did the name Maukilo come from? It’s in honor of a pussycat called Maui. Today Maukilo.com is owned by HABA, a renowned German toy company, and shares a warehouse with HABA in Skaneateles, New York. Because of this partnership, Maukilo.com is able to offer more than 1,500 HABA items, the widest selection of HABA products in the U.S. Maukilo rounds out its assortment with other wonderful brands, all of which meet the company’s motto: “Buy once. Play forever.”
We received the HABA Bingo Animal Kids to review which was perfect for Kiana’s age range. It came with 6 animal bingo cards and 24 beech wood tiles in various colors all with an adorable animal printed on it.
To play, we each chose a bingo card. I like that the cards only contained 4 animals each. This way the game wasn’t too long or too overwhelming for Kiana. We then placed all the tiles upside down and took turn picking one until one of our cards was filled up. The winner then yelled “Animal Bingo!”
In a variation of the game, Kacie and I had 3 cards each and Kiana picked the tiles and called out the animals to us. The first one to complete a card won.
Because these tiles are made of smooth beech wood. Kiana also enjoyed playing with them like they were blocks. She would stack them up, match up the colors, or categorize them into types of animals. And because there are no sharp edges, even Kaila could play along.
So if you’re looking for a high-quality toy that will last for years and years to come, check out the selection at Maukilo.com.
