On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
The Field Toy is the perfect farm accessory toy. Imagine: you just got your child a brand new barn complete with animals. You may even have a cute, little tractor to go with it. Now, to let the cow out to graze….on your living room rug?
We buy our children super realistic looking barns and animals to go with it only to have the cows grazing on carpet fibers. Shouldn’t we really let our child’s imaginations explode with a realistic little field to go with their farm!?
My children absolutely LOVE this. Both my husband and I grew up on farms, and now that we have our own children, we try to create a farm atmosphere on our homestead. Our children love playing outdoors with our dozens of chickens and they spend hours playing with their farm toys inside. Adding The Field toy to our collection of farm toys was the best thing we ever did. All four of our children love playing with it – from ages 2 to 11
Most of the farm animals spend only a small portion of their daylight in a barn. They love pretending to herd their sheep or making the cows graze. One time they pretended that is where their alien toys landed.
The Field can be good for a farm, battlefield, dinosaur home, or even a pretend football game.
This toy works well with the Melissa and Doug animals and the Barn as well. There are so many possibilities for open-ended play with this toy. Plus, it looks very cute on display in the living room or toy room when it’s not in use.
The cutest part of this toy: your child gets a deed to their own little piece of land! This is an excellent toy for your kids if you want to encourage homesteading too.
The American Academy of Pediatrics says that it “provides a singular opportunity to build the executive functioning that underlies adaptive behaviors at home; improve language and math skills in school; build the safe, stable, and nurturing relationships that buffer against toxic stress; and build social–emotional resilience.” And that “it is intrinsically motivated and leads to active engagement and joyful discovery.”
We know your kids will love The Field Toy so much, we teamed up with this Ireland-based company to offer you a chance to win one for yourself!
