HABA is 75: Haba Doll Rainy Day set review...

We are big fans of HABA toys in our family, but before now I have associated them purely with wooden toys as that was the only part of the HABA brand that I had personally experienced. However, I was thrilled to learn that they have quite a vast range of toys and games that all seem to hold the same ethos as the wooden toys my children love so much. If your're not familiar with the brand they are a wood manufacturing company known for their high-quality baby and children's toys, as well as their children's games and furniture. You can find out more on their website Or by following on Twitter andfacebook. I love this quote from their brochure...

At HABA we design and invent what our research shows us that today’s children and parents really want - high quality toys that support children’s development in an enjoyable way that is age appropriate.
Do you know what? That is exactly what I want! Not faddy toys to go with the latest craze that will be broken or discarded in a matter of weeks...

As they are celebrating their 75th Year at the moment,  they have chosen 75 bloggers to share reviews of their lovely children's products. We have been sent three items and you'll be able to read the reviews here over the next few days.

Yesterday we shared our review of the HABA Charlotte Doll, today we have a lovely rainy day outfit made for Charlotte or any other 38cm HABA doll.

This is a really pretty set and looks lovely on the Charlotte Doll. The wellies fasten with velcro at the back so are really easy for Elizabeth to take on and off, the rain jacket is in the style of a cape with a velcro spot to fasten at the front and slits for the arms, again making it simple for tots to dress and undress their dolly. They are lovely bright colours and made from a lightweight lovely quality material. We haven't yet tested it out in a downpour to see if it is really waterproof but I will let you know when we do!

The third part to this set is the gorgeous red spotty umbrella  It has a plastic frame with a fabric covering the inner mechanism so little fingers cannot get trapped. The brolly is really easy to open and close and my daughter loves playing with it.

This is a lovely set and would make an ideal gift for a little one who has (or is going to have) a Lottie and friends or similar sized Dolly. The set is recommended for 38cm dollies. I'm not sure of the retail price as cannot find this set online  in the uk currently. I will update when I do.
