Here is a great gift idea from HABA for that little sweetheart in your life. The Pure Nature Doll Leafy Girl is designed for ages 6 months and up and the suggested retail is $17.99. At 8 inches long she is a perfect size for little one's hands. The little leaves gives them something to pull, lift, and play with.
The HABA Pure Nature Organic toys make a very sensible choice for gift giving. You only want to give that little one the best choice available, by going with a soft, all natural toy. These toys are produced in accordance with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards). The GOTS are for the child's safety and for the environment.
HABA toys can be found at over 1,000 US specialty retail stores, specialty catalogs and of course online! They have been recognized with both German and American rewards. Be sure to visit their website for more information.
HABA and How They Started:
It was a risk to start a company in an empty factory building on April 26, 1938, in uncertain times and with limited capital resources. But Anton Engel and Eugen Habermaaß were willing to take this risk: they founded the Anton Engel company, a factory for polished wooden products in Bad Rodach, then going on to found a second company a few days later with Karl Wehrfritz: Wehrfritz & Co.
In 1940, Eugen Habermaaß assumed sole responsibility for the company after his equal partners pulled out. With vision, a strong will, and perseverance, he saw the companies safely though the Second World War and the subsequent occupation.
In 1955, Eugen Habermaaß passed away quite suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 53. Though his wife Luise Habermaaß had been helping out at the firm for a number of years, her next step took a great deal of courage: the mother of four took the helm without any formal training in business or technology. Her sense of social responsibility towards the company’s employees back then is the main reason the company is still in existence today. Luise Habermaaß quickly demonstrated a fine sense of the demands of the market. With a great deal of determination and the support of her long-term employees, she fought to make her own personal economic miracle a success in the 50s. Luise Habermaaß, honorary citizen of the city of Bad Rodach, died in 2003 shortly before her 97th birthday.

I would appreciate if my neighbors would "like" the HABA Facebook page. Be sure to take a minute and follow them on Twitter
I am sure my neighbors will be satisfied with any toy they purchase from HABA. And your child will be happy too! I will just share something with you here. I did a sort of stress test by pulling on Leafy Girl's arms, legs, hair, etc. because I have purchased toys before that come apart at the seams. Leafy Girl passed with flying colors. Nothing came loose, and you did not hear any ripping sounds. This doll is well made and I am already planning her new home!
