But for HABA’s incredibly successful toddler game line, “My Very First Games,” the goal is to help pre-schoolers to develop sensitivity and manipulative skills. Of course, like other games, the goal of entering award competitions is to win, and because of its brilliant simplicity, HABA has won the 2012 National Parenting Center Seal of Approval. Here’s what impressed the judges at The National Parenting Center’s judges about HABA’s new game: My Very First Games - Animal Upon Animal • Ages 2 and Up “HABA continues to impress testers, this time with a game for very young toddlers. Its game play fosters creativity and its simplicity allows children as young as two to grasp the concept. There are wooden pieces that are well-made, sized just right for little hands, adorable, brightly painted with lead-free paint and the wood is sustainable. Wonderful for developing manual dexterity, parents were thrilled to watch the concentration on the faces of their little ones. There are three different games which serve to keep things fresh. Testers found this game to be a rare combination of wholesome, silly fun that developed kinesthetic awareness, hand-eye coordination and sensitivity training.” ABOUT THE NATIONAL PARENTING CENTER The National Parenting Center was founded in July of 1989, with the intention of providing the most comprehensive and responsible parenting advice to parents everywhere.
