What is it

What our experts think
Children thoroughly enjoyed building their own Johnny Tractor – the drill added to their fun and was a particular hit! Even the younger children, who needed an adult’s help, loved taking him apart and putting him back together again. This is a great way to develop logical thinking (as children reinforce their understanding of how the pieces go together) as well as dexterity.
Once assembled, Johnny soon became part of children’s make-believe games, encouraging creativity and movement through play.
