Editor's Notes

September 10, 2020:

A child's imagination can take them to the most distant of worlds, however, much of the imaginative play they enjoy engaging in is based around real-life situations and scenarios. Whether they are playing with doll houses or Disney characters, it's important to encourage this kind of make-believe play in our young people. These farm toys are an ideal way to allow little ones to be creative while educating them about animals and agriculture.

For younger kids, the Fisher-Price Little People Set and the B.Toys Baa Baa Musical are good selections. By pushing buttons, or placing animals in certain places, kids can work their way around the farm discovering different things and listening to the songs and animal noises that are played. The former also features a couple of different textures for youngsters to feel.

For older children who want to get to grips with the more intrinsic workings of a farm, the Schleich Animal World can be a great educational tool. This set is not only well-made but also very detailed in its portrayal of cattle rearing. It only comes with two animals, but there are lovely accessories to play with, such as the winch and the massage wheel.

While quite basic, the Green Toys Play Set scored highly on our list as it is a durable choice that is perfect for traveling with. All of the pieces squeeze neatly inside, with a bit of jigsawing, and the handle cutout in the roof makes it easy to carry. It's also made from 100% recycled materials.
