About Us

about_leftHaus originally opened in March 2003. Haus continuously inspires “the art of modern living” and now “the art of

playful living” by offering gift ideas for all ages and unique home accessories. A creative shopper is delighted to find each item influenced by haus’ commitment to quality and design, tradition and innovation.

We quickly realized that there was a lack of quality toys offered in the greater Boston area, and so we began to focus on expanding our selection of wooden toys, games, stuffed animals and dolls from Germany. Among the famous toymakers from Germany, we represent Selecta, Kathe Kruse, Steiff and Haba. We hope to add many more European toy manufacturers and companies in 2006.

All of our product offered online and in the store are carefully selected and tested, often with the help of my daughter who was born in August, 2004. Her birth certainly helped shape the direction of our retail venture.

My philosophy as a parent is to eliminate over-stimulating playrooms and to remember that there is great value in classic, simple toys and quality well-designed clothing that can be handed down from child to child. As a store owner I feel strongly about educating the consumer about choosing a few high-quality timeless toys, rather than encouraging filling a playroom with distracting battery-operated toys that will quickly bore the child with their lack of room for imagination.

A new year finds us moving into a new space as we continue to bring you the best children’s products. Come visit us or enjoy browsing our online store. Feel free to get in touch with any questions about any of our online items. As always, we are proud to offer FREE gift wrap from Stewo European Wrap Collection.
