15 best wooden farm sets to let your child’s imagination run wild


by Stephanie Anthony |

Do you or someone you know have an animal obsessed child? If you hear the nursery rhyme 'Old Macdonald had a farm' on daily basis, chances are your toddler is farm crazy.

Perhaps they love visiting the farm and seeing all the cows, sheep and pigs or maybe they just love to get mucky. You don't have to clean off the wellies every time your child wants to play on a farm if you get them a wooden farm set. All the fun, without the clean-up!

Wooden toys are far more sustainable, durable and long-lasting than plastic toys, which can sometimes be brittle and flimsy. Even better, wood can survive rough play and can be passed on to other children once your child has grown out of their toy so nothing will go to waste or break after a few minutes.

A farm toy set will give your little one hours of imaginary play and will help them understand more about nature, animals, shapes, colours and dexterity. Plus, when the toy sets are made of wood, it gives a more natural feeling and experience.

With that in mind, we have compiled a list of the best wooden toy farm sets, from barns and animals to wooden magnets and puzzles so they can play at the farm to their heart's content.

Review: "Bought as a gift for an animal mad three year old who will love this. It's not massive but looks well made. I haven't been able to have a good look yet as it's to be a Christmas gift. I love wooden toys, and I'm hoping he will too. It's a simple design, but kids love putting things in and of spaces, so I'm sure his other animals will take a turn too. It had a large opening and closing doors at the back and a carrying handle."

Review: "This is a lovely farm which is easily assembled after some basic construction work. It is bright and beautiful, great fun for the children. It actually takes up quite a bit of space, and although the sides and roof come off easily, the down posts do not. Therefore you need to have the space to store it constructed. I think it is great value for money. My daughters play with it for hours, and it doubles up beautifully as a car park and garage for their cars."

Smaller pieces may be too small for younger babies - duck, rabbit and cat have been confiscated until little one learns not to put them in his mouth!"
