Because It’s Christmas - Group 5 gift unwrapped - Haba Sleepy Princess and the Pea Game GIVEAWAY

This marks the next unwrapping of the Because It's Christmas gifts and the first from Group 5 here on 3 P's Mama Says....

We told you in our posts about the Fantasy Blocks sent by Petit Baby and the Casalino Fabric Blocks that HABA was at the top of our list as a quality and imaginative producer of toys. They have been a super generous sponsor by also providing the Sleepy Princess and the Pea Game.

You may recall that HABA is a European manufacturer of soft and wooden educational learning toys. HABA is located in Germany and is very popular for their unique high-quality baby and toddler toys, children's toys, as well as baby nursery accessories, children's games and furniture. HABA view themselves as a "single source supplier" for children and that their toys are described as “INQUISITIVE PLAYTHINGS FOR INQUISITIVE MINDS”.

All HABA wooden toys and wooden parts are made in Germany and the same is true of this game where their factories are all ITCI certified. HABA employees in Germany audit any factory used to insure who is making the product, what is going into the product and the quality coming out. HABA's educational toys and quality products support baby and children development and will make any parent and every child happy.

Following last year's concerns over manufacturing, the Sleepy Princess and the Pea Game meets or exceeds specifications of European (EN-71) and American (ASTM) Toy Safety Standards, allowing me to feel 100% comfortable about giving it to my child. We recently read the story of the Princess and the Pea so my daughters are very excited at the prospect of this game.

In case you don't recall the basic story, Sleepy Princess is based on the classic fairy tale where a disheveled young girl shows up at a palace one rainy night and claims to be a princess. The queen tests her by putting her in a bed with dozens of mattresses, pillows and blankets beneath her and a tiny pea buried beneath them all. If she is a real princess, thinks the queen, she will be so delicate that she will feel the discomfort of the pea beneath the huge pile of bedding. Of course, the princess passes the test and is rewarded with the prince of the palace's hand in marriage.

In the game, you are the queen's eager helpers and you must prepare the bed for the little princess. You have to be careful and skillful as the queen wants her to sleep on a wobbly pile of mattresses. Together you try to help the princess with the stacking of the mattresses. This game includes 2 fairy tale games of skill for 2 - 4 players ages 3-12 with the fairy tale "The Princess and the Pea" a story to read again and again.

Children do not need to be able to read to play this game, but it will help them develop their fine motor skills and the cooperative version of the game does away with the winner/loser situation that so many children's games have, making it perfect for the younger set as well.
