Hape Toys is one of the world’s largest producers of toys made from sustainable materials. Hape toys are both creatively designed and eco-friendly. Neither culture, nor language, nor gender inhibits the intuitive process of play. All of the products meet, and more often, exceed the strictest international standards for quality and safety. But behind the innovative designs and meticulous quality lies the even stronger ethos of Hape.
From the beginning of the design process, through production and delivery, to the final unwrapping of the consumer packaging, Hape toys are a collaboration of global thinking and responsible ecology.
In addition to using particular materials and methods, Hape seeks out people who bring a new sensibility to the process. A collaboration of international and local employees creates a global corporate culture with a particular understanding and respect for the world in which we live. Sustainability, education, innovation and fun. Hape Toys represents the next generation of play.
As the world’s largest producer of wooden toys, Hape is clearly dependent on the use of natural materials. A full line of bamboo toys takes advantage of the special properties of this highly renewable material. Plastic parts are ensured durable enough to last for generations in order to encourage toys to be passed down rather than tossed out.
Hape has strategically considered surface treatment, energy consumption, and packaging options to minimize environmental impact and maximize efficiency.
Byproducts and Waste
Hape has introduced key processes to ensure that the variety of by-products produced cause minimal impact to the environment. A water purification system utilizes limited or no chemicals to release the cleansed water back into circulation.
Shipping & Transport
Hape buys materials from 10 countries and sells to over 50. Locating the Hape factory only 3km from the Ningbo-Zhoushan Harbor, one of the largest ports in the world, created transportation as well as ecological advantages.
