Kullerbü play world from HABA – roly-poly, multi-colored, and exciting

Play fun for children ages 2 to 8 years

On the ball, get set, go ... and the jolly fun is off and rolling. In the Kullerbü play world, ball Paul and the other Rollicking Rockers make a really big impact and soar to new heights. They roll through colorful playscapes, whiz past windmills, and ring the little bell at the finish line. And because that was such a huge amount of fun, right away it starts all over again!

Kullerbü is the perfect combination of wood and plastic parts and deliberately works with the advantages of each particular material. The balls, columns, curves, straight tracks, and ramps made from beech wood and the effect elements made from plywood are sturdy and make the Kullerbü play system from HABA into a long-lasting toy for your child’s entire childhood – and beyond. Wood is a fantastic raw material that can be turned into countless ideas for toys and games. It is with good reason that wooden toys have been an essential component of HABA’s range of products since the company’s founding. 

Elements that cannot be manufactured from wood due to their shape or functionality are made from plastic – for example the flexible connecting elements or the yellow steep ball curves where ball Paul rolls rapidly downhill. 

And because little Kullerbü master builders prefer to get going immediately with playing, our designers have developed an assembly system that is child’s play in the truest sense.

Clever click system

Insert, click, done – assembling a play world could hardly be easier. The well thought out system of connecting elements ensures maximum stability, both on the floor and in the air. Nothing can easily shake the Kullerbü tracks – even when the overly eager little master track builder accidentally bumps into them.  The ramps, straight tracks, and curves have a hole on their lower side, into which the pins of the connecting elements snap snugly into place. Simply click a second ramp, straight track, or curve on the other side and the rolling route is already beginning to “grow”. The columns bring height into play and are each provided with height indicators ... both as numbers and as dots. Putting together a dark green base, a column, and a light green connector results in a sturdy support for ramps, straight tracks, and curves. Younger children will usually need some help with the assembly, while older children can experiment by themselves with the various pieces and heights. You can find more information about the Compatibility of the Kullerbü play system at www.haba.de in the HABA resource center.

Detailed Kullerbü assembly instructions are available for complimentary downloading or as a video for watching.

 

Cute and authentic children’s design

The Kullerbü play world from HABA delights children and parents both with their awesome effects and easy assembly as well as their cute and authentic children’s design.  The colorful balls and connecting elements bring a lot of color into play. And the large Kullerbü elements such as the big dipper ramp, the looping ramp, or the archway with the little bell are provided with affectionate illustrations. There are all sorts of things for children to discover here: the jolly yellow cat that rejoices when the little bell rings at the the finish line; the courageous frog who always wants to go higher; the loyal dog who watches his friends from the floor during their adventures; or the cheeky blue mice, who join in every fun.

The great thing about the Kullerbü system is its versatility: it is stable and safe for the youngest children, is easily and yet flexibly compatible with other track sets, and at the same time is its own imaginative play world, which puts children in a good mood and encourages them to continue to play and experiment. And Kullerbü continues to grow! “We’re working full of joy on numerous new ideas, which will make the life of ball Paul and his friends even more colorful and multi-faceted,” declares the Kullerbü design team, which includes Anna Lena Filipiak, Ines Frömelt and Jan Schenkel. They give the Kullerbü play world from HABA its distinctive and cute design that delights children and fires up their imaginations.

Material, quality & safety

Toys are only as good as their materials and their workmanship. This principle applies to all HABA toys and also of course to the Kullerbü play world! Our products made from wood have carried the PEFC seal since 2010. It verifies that we use wood from sustainable forestry in German forests. In concrete terms this means: the beech wood, which the robust Kullerbü balls, columns, straight tracks, curves, and ramps are made from, comes from forests that are within a radius of 150 km/93 mi of the company’s headquarters in Bad Rodach in Upper Franconia. Major effects such as the looping ramp, big dipper ramp, or the various gateways are manufactured from plywood that is imported and also originates exclusively from sustainably managed forests. We are thereby doing our part to maintain the ecological balance of the forests.
Whenever color comes into play – whether on the balls, domino blocks, or other Kullerbü wooden elements – we use solvent-free water-based paints and stains. “Colorful” and “safe” go naturally hand-in-hand for us.
In addition to carefully selected materials and high-quality craftsmanship, the issue of safety is of highest priority at HABA. Kullerbü products, like all HABA wooden toys, pass through our in-house quality assurance as well as external test procedures. All Kullerbü balls have an extra large diameter of 4.6 cm/1.8 inches, so that they cannot be swallowed by children under 3 years of age.

 

From a wooden block to Rollicking Roller Paul – a journey through HABA toy production

A truck loaded with beech wood arrives almost every day at HABA’s production plant. The first stop is the kiln then it’s on to the toy production. HABA employees scrutinize each piece of wood, saw it and allocate the wood to the different areas of the toy production. In order that the jolly ball Paul can emerge from the beech wood, a technical drawing based on the designer’s design is first required. Based on this drawing and corresponding work plans, ball Paul then passes through the individual manufacturing steps, in which he receives his shape, color, and appearance. First he gets his round shape in the turning shop. It’s then on to the paint shop, where there are several color drums filled with water paints in a variety of color shades. Here ball Paul can take a dip in the color immersion bath! Finally, Paul receives his cheerful cheeky face imprint.
