Farm toys

What items should I buy when starting a toy farm?

We’re an agricultural business focusing on providing a wide range of items. This includes essentials like wellies and jackets, fertiliser, and animal health products. We even have something for the kids in the form of farm toys. They are fun for children and can also have a positive impact on their development.

You might have an enthusiastic young farmer on your hands that is keen to start their toy farm collection. There are a lot of pieces available though. This can make it difficult to know where to start. Fortunately, we can point you in the right direction. Read on for our top tips.

Grab a tractor

Firstly, you should know that no farm is complete without one tractor at the very least. The big question here isn’t whether you get one; it’s more important to know what make to purchase. If you get this wrong, you may find yourself back at the drawing board. There are multiple makes and models to pick from. But, you can’t go wrong with a blue, red, or green tractor.

Trailers are great too

After you’ve chosen a tractor, the trailer is the next essential toy. Real farms use them to carry animals, crops, silage, or bales. So, a toy farm should have at least one too. It will be possible to take them around the lawns and over the carpet. There are plenty of them to choose from, such as ones specifically for livestock and others for bales.

Implements and machinery toys

These two will primarily depend on the interests of the young farmer. They might be more likely to establish a toy arable farm. In this case, then after the tractor and trailer, a baler and plough would be a great starting point. Or, the model farm to be created may be one from an animal enthusiast. Here, a feeder wagon could be more suitable. Let us know if you require any farm toys.

Farm buildings

Like we said before, selecting what your toy farmer will need all depends on the kind of farm they have an interest in. A tractor shed is a fantastic option for storing all your toy tractors. It is the same for any scale farm machinery. If there are animals you will definitely want a shed or stables. If they have cows, you could even choose a milking parlour. Size is essential too when buying buildings. Ensure the scales are the same so animals and machinery fit in nicely.

No farm is complete without animals

You’ll want a selection of animals for any farm. Of course, you may have a kid farmer who likes a particular type of animal. If this is the case, it is the best place for you to start. Otherwise, you can purchase packs of mixed scale animals to begin the collection. It will create various farm yard activities and jobs.

Farm toys are always a wonderful choice

Hopefully the information here will give you good ideas for where to begin with the toy farm. These are all just suggestions though. You can collect the items and add to the farm in whatever order you desire as things develop or grow with time. Just remember to keep it interesting for your child and let them explore.
