The toy maker’s passion lies in making open ended play available for as many children as possible. For this they create natural and safe toys. Each one crafted at a world class production facility to meet the highest standards of quality.
Hape’s motto is “Love play. Learn” believing that children’s curiosity and creativity are the ideal avenues for teaching them about the world and helping them develop the skills they will need for life.
Hape’s mission is to create toys that tap into this natural willingness to learn, making the educational experience a truly joyful one. A mission that has been going from strength to strength for the last 30 years.

The Hape 30th Anniversary Toy Collection
Pound and Tap Bench
A timeless toy to stimulate your little one’s motor skills. Alongside the company the Pound and Tap Bench celebrates its 30th anniversary. Pound on the bench with the mallet to send the balls tinkling over the xylophone or play the xylophone separately to help develop your child’s rhythm and understanding of cause and effect.
An iconic toy that celebrates Hape’s 30-year heritage, the Walk-A-Long puppy promotes fine motor skills, dexterity and hand-to-eye coordination, all the while encouraging hours of imaginative play. A great friend for children, who can make the puppy sit, stand or roll to their heart’s content. Each puppy play toy is also made from FSC certified wood stock.
The set contains 30 building blocks crafted in FSC certified solid wood. Designed in red to stimulate early learning, the different shapes and sizes fuel a child’s imagination for hours of solo and group play.
This unique toy also has a charitable side, being linked to Hape’s “We Care, We Share” initiative. Launched along with the company in 1986 the enterprise sees Hape donate a toy to a child for every set of blocks sold. Toys are given to kids in Syria, Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, Nepal and Autistic children in China; children who have been suffering from illness, poverty, discrimination, war and natural disaster.
