KEEP KIDS FROM SAYING, “I’M BORED” THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WITH HABA BOARD GAMES
Keep Kids Busy with Entertaining and Educational Games from HABA
Skaneateles, NY (October 15, 2009) – Pediatricians and toy makers agree that a large chunk of
childhood should be spent playing games. Free time spent playing games with other children builds
speech, reading, social skills, and problem solving. What sorts of games should kids be playing this
year? In today’s techno-crazy world of texting and remote controls, a game that includes a roll of the
dice or a shuffle of cards is needed more than ever. HABA rolls out dozens of new board games – large
and small -- plus soft covered books for down time, any time.
The award-winning maker of children’s products encourages kids to play across from one another,
rather than virtually. Play takes many forms, but the heart of all play is amusement. If it isn't fun, it isn't play! All HABA games available at www.maukilo.com.
