What It IsHaba is a wonderful German toy company known for its high quality, classic playthings. The toys help kids engage in imaginative, open-ended play in traditional role play categories.
Perhaps one of the most classic of these is food play. Kids love to pretend to cook, shop and serve food—after all it's one of the activities they see their parents doing weekly, if not more often.
Kids in the U.S. are not likely to see their parents gut and bone fish as preparation for cooking, but, well, in Germany they do. This fun fabric fish has an interactive, and unique, play food feature—removable bones. Children can pretend to clean their fish just like Dad (provided Dad is an avid fisherman or works the fish counter), without the mess or risk of sharp knives. The fish's belly opens with a Velcro closure, and the bones slide easily in and out. The fish's body is made from polyester and the bones are plastic.
