What is it
Within any farm there is a farmer and his family: this set includes a farmer with his stick and sheep dog, his wife (who has just collected the eggs) and their daughter carrying a bucket.
All three figures wear classic green wellington boots an are an ideal addition to the Britains farmyard.

What our experts think
A realistic and detailed set of figures which are a great addition to any farm play set! Our testers played with these alongside other similar products – they got creative and found a turf sport which they transformed into a farm. This kind of imaginative play is great for acting out and making sense of different scenarios, and role playing helps children to develop their personal, social and emotional skills.
The children returned to these figures many times, setting up various farming scenes. They enjoyed making the different figures around the farm talk to each other: this verbalising of their play develops oral storytelling skills (an important precursor to writing stories). It also helps children to build their vocabulary and develop their knowledge and understanding of life on a farm.
