HABA Come with us! Opposites book – Review

We were delighted to be sent some little HABA toys to help celebrate HABA’s 75th Anniversary!  HABA are a German toy manufacturing company that produces high quality children’s toys, games and furniture.  A lot of their toys are made from wood but in more recent years they have expanded to use other materials but have maintained the excellent high standard we have come to know from HABA.

I have always found that any HABA toys I have come across have been beautifully designed, attractive to look at and well made.  They are a joy to own and play with and great to pass down to younger children – they definitely stand the test of time.

We received a book from the Come with us! series and it was all about opposites.  It is a board book aimed at preschool children and covers opposites such as tall/short, empty/full, small/large etc.

What makes this book from HABA so delightful is that it comes with a beautifully made wooden sheep called Willow.  He is magnetic and what makes the book clever is that on each page the Willow will only stick to the opposite described in the story.

My two children both enjoyed this book and had fun playing with Willow to see where he would and wouldn’t stick and although 5 yr old Miss M knew immediately where to stick him, 2 yr old Mister B had to think a bit more and by trying to stick Willow in various places has helped reinforce opposites with him.

We love this HABA Come with us! book and think it would be great for any child of pre school age.  A nice little story along with learning opportunities in a fun, interactive way.


All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions. We are not paid for reviews although we do receive the product to try out and enable us to write the review.
