If you like toys, you can thank Germany. The toy industry really is a German phenomena.
Founded after World War II in Hamburg, Germany, Haba makes, inarguably, some of the best toys in the world–the types of toys that last through multiple generations of use. They are beautifully designed and constructed and meet European product standards (which are higher than US Standards). While they may be a bit more expensive than their American and Asian counterparts, you are buying a toy or a game that will be around for a long time.
As a service, we like to provide game reviews. There are a number of good review sites, although our favorite is the “dice” guys (Tom Vasel & Company).
