What is it
Tiny Farm is an app where children can explore the 3 different farmyard scenes and have a look at what happens on a farm. As well as the usual and expected there are also lots of amusing additions to delight and interest children.
In the four scenes there are over 9o hidden animations for children to click on and watch.
Among other things players can; mow the field with the combine harvester and sow the new crops; let the boys in the treehouse slide down the flying fox; find out why the sheep is so funny and ride the pony: walk, trot or canter.

What our experts think
Tiny Farm is a delightful app that allows children to play imaginatively; there is lots to see and do within the scenes and the children can decide for themselves what they want to make happen.
The app is brilliant for developing a child’s observational and exploration skills.
We really liked the way in which there were some unexpected animations within each scene; we particularly liked the old man on the swing, the fabulous inventions and the little robot which zipped around.
It would be even better if...
We would like to have seen more of a story and more scenes for children to explore.
