Haba Advent Calendar

Today Haakon's original artwork is featured as part of the Haba Toys Christmas Advent Calendar. Children were invited to create holiday themed artwork based on the Haba character; Piro the Elf. Haakon's artwork was selected to be one of twenty-four pieces featured on their online Advent calendar.

Haakon received this letter from Haba toys congratulating him on being selected as "one of the 24 most beautiful" pictures!

He was so excited to be featured!! He received this Haba board game called Monster Bake for being selected. The "Post Angel" delivered it from Germany just before December! 

If you aren't familiar with Haba toys I suggest you check them out. They are heirloom quality wooden toys that promote a love of learning.

Until we thrift again...
