Haba Kringelring from Oompa Toys
I say this time, and time again, but, living in a small town can be so limiting when you are seeking quality products for your baby. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve shopped my local toy stores in search of unique choices in toys for Evan, only to leave frustrated when it’s the same 10 toys that we’ve seen over, and over. What am I looking for in a great toy? Well, since my son is 9-months-old, I’m looking for toys that are bright, easy to hold, and that will stand up well to lots of chewing! Imagine my delight when I laid eyes on the Kringelring from Haba, available at the wonderful Oompa! Here, have a look, you’ll see what I mean!
I just love how bright, crisp, and visually interesting then Haba Kringelring looks, and Evan really enjoys waving it around to hear the little wooden pieces clack together. The teether is made of beech wood with maple elements threaded over a sturdy, cloth-covered red band. I just adore the look and feel of wooden baby toys as opposed to plastic.
If you are considering purchasing this toy, I would really recommend it as a gift for a baby of about 3 or 4 months of age. Evan really likes playing with this now, but it would have been even more exciting for him during the phase of his development when he was just beginning to explore reaching, grabbing, and grasping objects. This would also be a great baby shower gift!
The Haba Kringelring is just one of an entire catalog of unique toys from Oompa. I took the following blurb from Oompa’s Web site, and I think it sums up their philosophy nicely:
NO BATTERIES. NO BLINKING LIGHTS. NO CARTOON-THEMED TOYS. PERIOD. We offer our constantly expanding collection of European wooden toys, baby toys, educational toys, lunch bags and modern children’s furniture to urbane and discerning adults who want to expose the young children in their lives to non-character branded, quality toys that are designed to withstand generations of use.
Guess what? Oopma would like to give you a Haba Kringelring too! Here’s how you can win!
