I have been buying Haba toys for my baby, believing these were safe baby toys made in Germany. Because of this, I did not hesitate to pay extra money for these blocks. So I was shocked to find that the red rattle in this set contains high level of arsenic and the blue fabric hat contains small amount of Bromine. (My baby loves to chew on this hat) Overall, this toy is rated "HIGH" in toxicity level at HealthyStuff.org. Some Haba toys have 0 toxicity level, but unfortunately, this block is not one of them. I have thrown away the two toxic blocks, but this leaves the set rather uninteresting and way over priced.

***UPDATE***

I contacted Haba regarding the high toxicity level reported on these blocks. Here is the reply I received;

Thank you for taking the time to write to us. Obviously you are a very educated and astute parent and for that I applaud you! We at HABA® really appreciate parents such as yourselves. Being a mom of two children myself and an "auntie" to 11 more children I can empathize.

Our HABA parent company in Germany was the first toy manufacturer in Europe to voluntarily send our items to an independent testing lab to get tested many decades ago. Mr. Habermaass still owns this family owned business and he is a grandfather now himself. You can read more about HABA at [...] in the About section. In fact in 2008 after the heavy recalls of China made goods many other toy companies from Europe and America decided to pull back from the USA market. HABA didn't, we actually embraced the new CPSIA laws President Bush signed just before the end of his term. Of course this new law put a heavy financial stress on all childrens' products producers and retailers but HABA endured.

We wanted a SAFE alternative to most blocks you buy in stores right now that may or may not contain lead paint - esp since babies put EVERYThing in their mouths. We decided HABA, a German company, with a great reputation was the way to go. Our 7 mo old baby LOVES these blocks because they are very unique. The jingly one, the one with a mirror. SHe loves the donut shaped one and the little guy with his car. It's the best gift she got for Christmas and that's saying a lot when comparing it to all the battery-operated toys she got! I think the basics go a long way. She is entertained by these for a long time. We will buy more Haba toys in the future.

Colorful, well made blocks. There are not really enough to "build" anything, so I would suggest buying a set of Haba blocks that can be used with these, like the Fantasy Blocks.

My original review of this product was quite favorable. While these blocks are among my son's favorite things to play with, I do have concerns now that we've had the blocks for several months (under HEAVY use). First, the hat on the little person is not secure. Ours fell off and would have posed a huge choking threat to our son if we hadn't grabbed it in time. We will not be reattaching the hat - we'll just "retire" that toy. Second, we have noticed cracking in several of the blocks. Any cracks in a wooden product such as this will harbor bacteria from moisture (similar to wooden cutting boards). Since these blocks are only meant to be wiped clean with a damp cloth, there is no way to get them very clean. That in itself should have been a big red flag for us when we first bought them. Think about how much moisture they came into contact with from our son's saliva alone. In hindsight, NOT GOOD. Finally, I read the review about this product on healthystuff.org (thanks to G_Girl's recommendation) and it does get a high rating for toxicity. That was the icing on the cake for us. These blocks will all be retired now. It is a shame, too, because they really were a big hit here. They did cost a lot...I figured the Haba reputation meant that they were safe. I should have dug a little deeper I guess.

My 6-month old daughter is fascinated by these blocks, right now mainly with the blue cube that has a jingle bell inside. While she is too young to stack the blocks, the bright colors, varied shapes, jingling noises and mirror are really appealing to her and she studies them intently. It's nice that this set is not just square blocks but includes round and cylindrical shapes that roll, and can see this being something she enjoys for a longgood quality time in ever-expanding ways. I like Haba products in general, which are made from nice woods and fabrics.

There aren't many blocks but they are durable and attractive. After four or five months of being knocked down, they still look great. My son is ten months old now and has enjoyed checking out and knocking down all the blocks. My husband said that I could buy as many blocks like these as I wanted - and that says a lot! I recently bought Sevi fantasy cubes because I could get more for less money. I was disappointed since the paint started chipping shortly after receiving them. I'm returning those and will replace them with more Haba blocks.

This is a great set of blocks for a child who isn't going to put them in his or her mouth. Given the intended audience for this set of "first blocks", I'd say it's a pretty lousy toy for a very high price. Healthystuff.org found high levels of arsenic in these toys, which I discovered today after checking to see if the blocks had been recalled for posing a choking hazard after my 8-month-old baby ended up with one of the small-marble-sized yellow headlights from the car in his mouth. I'm so disappointed with Haba for putting this product out here. You'd think with German standards our kids would be safe, but not so. It's a shame, because other than the potentially life-threatening aspects of these blocks, my kid loved them!
