- KangarooBoo is having a great sale right now on quality wooden and unique toys! My boys would love this Airport by Plan Toys. Originally $80, it’s on sale for $69.98. And use the coupon code HB20 to take 20% off all regularly priced HABA toys until July 21! (Two more reasons to shop KangarooBoo: 1) Jennic and Justin, who own the store, are the nicest people you’ll ever meet; 2) They donate a portion of each order to a charity!
