Part of what makes HABA such a special company, is our dedication to specialty toy retailers. You will not find HABA toys on the shelves at WalMart or Costco. HABA is a family owned business in Germany and we pride ourselves on having the same type of business re-selling our toys in the US. The toy and gift stores around the country that believe in HABA enough to offer them to their own customers have been instrumental in helping us to grow, thrive and survive through the ever-changing economy.
A wonderful example of a fabulous HABA retailer is PLAY, located in Chicago's new "it" neighborhood - Logan Square. Touted as the area's go-to source for unique toys and gifts and known for their tremendous customer service, it was no surprise to hear that the store and their owner Ann Kienzle are featured in and on the cover of October 2014's issue of EdPlay Magazine, an industry trade magazine.
What makes PLAY so special? Just read the reviews online. Over and over, the reviews mention quality, atmosphere, friendliness, selection and variety, yet simplicity. PLAY also goes above and beyond by offering fun activities for the community such as movie showings and story time, as well as unique services such as private shopping after hours if scheduled ahead of time, extended holiday hours, free gift wrapping and free local delivery. The store is neat, organized, creatively decorated for the appropriate season and conveniently located. If you live near Chicago or plan on visiting, you simply must check out PLAY in Logan Square! To keep up with all of their happenings, like and follow them on Facebook and Instagram. Congratulations to PLAY for this well deserved recognition, HABA is truly proud to be able to call them our retailer!
