From my favorite wooden toy company, HABA, comes a new line of kids twin beds. I’m going to warn you- they are not inexpensive. In fact, they are probably more than most parents would think of spending on a child’s bed but once you realize that not only are they the coolest beds ever, but they are more than just beds- they are also play environments.
The Garden Chalet Twin Bed is a garden for your little princess. The solid birch wood bed includes six fabric strands of pink roses and a "flower pouch" which can be used for storage. The light green fabric canopy completes the garden fantasy. The bed frame can be used separately from the garden house, and when she outgrows the garden, she can use the bed as a standalone piece. A matching writing desk and chair complete the look.
The Cozy Cabin Twin Bed transforms your son or daughter’s bedroom into a mountain top chalet. You can assemble all three pieces to form a bed and canopy, or put the bed aside and just assemble the sides and roof for a colorful, sturdy play fort. The roof of the cabin is a striped blue cloth hung over wooden dowels that can also be used to hang mobiles and favorite toys.
Like all HABA products, they are made of solid wood and non-toxic paints and stains.
Also, new and notable from HABA is a felt food toy line called Biofino. Because the company is German, one of the food kits includes wiener schnitzel and fries, but you’ll also find plenty of American favorites like a burger and fries and pizza (but please hold the anchovies!). Your kids can also prepare a felt lunch of sandwich fixings and two kinds of pasta. Rounding out the food line are two aprons, a shopping basket, oven mitt and potholder and a cooktop that can be set on a table edge or steps.
They also have an extensive collection of wooden toy veggies, fruits, sweets, breads, etc. Makes you wish you were a kid again!
