About Hape InternationalDrawing on decades of child development expertise, Hape (pronounced hah-pay) International is sensitive to children's needs whenever they develop and design a new toy. Their toys support children throughout every stage of development. This support starts at a very young age to help nurture and develop their natural abilities. Hape International's first priority is to encourage children in their individual development through building their self esteem. With their high-quality toys and games, they support children as they play, learn, interact and grow. Hape understands that children's social, emotional, intellectual and physical health is a key issue, not only for parents but also for a healthy society. That's why they take this responsibility very seriously and conduct a wide range of toy safety tests. The result is safe, exciting, stimulating toys.
