A wooden farm set and farm animals come in a variety of forms.
Here at Babame, we know that children love animals. So with that in mind, we have a fantastic range of wooden animals and farm toys including wooden farmyards, tractors and trailers, wooden animals, and farmers. In fact everything you need to build a farm playset that is perfect for you.
A farm playset is an ideal toy for small world play. Encourage imagination and storytelling as children set up their farmyard and act out all sorts of scenarios. They might be herding cows, ploughing the fields, picking apples or taking vegetables to the market. All while building language and vocabulary skills and learning about the world around them.
A wooden farm set makes a fabulous educational toy for introducing children to the idea of where their food comes from, the seasons and how to look after animals, as well as skills such as counting and building.
Wooden farm toys like the Le Toy Van My Farmyard and Tidlo Oldfield farm have an array of buildings fixed to a painted board. Children can use the barn, hay-loft and stables to house a wide variety of animals. In the larger buildings, a tractor or small pieces of machinery could live. These particular farm toys are great for storage and for children to begin playing with instantly. The painted boards depict duck ponds and they come with fences and fence posts for children to use to keep animals in. The buildings and boards are painted using wonderfully bright paints, perfect to pique a child’s imagination.
Playing with children helps them to develop their imagination and capacity for narrative thought. Start by setting the scene and then think of simple things you could do. Maybe the farmer needs to feed the chickens in the yard or bring the cows for milking. They'll soon get the idea and start playing along.
Choosing your wooden farm set. We have a great range of wooden farm sets and buildings to choose from depending on the amount of space you have, your taste and budget.
