Shopping online at Maukilo is the next best thing to hopping on Lufthansa to Germany. Sure, you'll miss those cute gerkins they include with every meal, but you won't have to declare your goods at customs and you'll still have access to a wide selection of European (mostly German)-made toys that embody Maukilo's motto: Buy once, Play forever.Maukilo carries several well-known German brands most notably their h-u-g-e Haba shop with over 1,500 items. Other German brands include Kettler, Spielstabil, Heye, Ravensburger, Selecta Spielzeug, Sigikid Bruder, Like-a-Bike, HEROS, Togu and Holztiger. If you have a favorite brand you look to again and again, Maukilo makes it easy to shop that way, but you can also shop by category or theme.
Maukilo's outlet section where you can save up to 85% is large and updated often so a good place to check especially if you're looking to make a larger purchase. Another nice feature of Maukilo's site is their blog. We see plenty of store blogs, but most are rarely if ever updated. Maukilo's blog is updated a few times a month with news of their latest offerings.
Pictured above are five products you'll find here that we really like and that give you a sense of what you'll find online:
