About Hape


Hape Philosophy

Our Philosophy Hape toys are designed first and foremost for children. Each product is developed to enhance a child’s developmental skills. Neither language, culture, gender impedes the intuitive play patterns. What children see as fun, parents and educators recognize as age-appropriate learning basics—social, sensory, physical and emotional skills. Using natural materials, water-based paints and strict quality and safety standards make every Hape toy an investment kids will love and parents can trust.

Hape Mission

Hape believes that the future begins—and belongs—to our children. It is our duty to leave them with infinite possibilities, not unsolvable problems. Our toys are created to inspire play, learning and exploration of the world we live in; through responsible business practices we aspire to leave that world in a better condition than when we received it.
