What our experts think
The children loved playing with this chunky tractor! Although they needed some help at first to get the wheels to pop out, they soon got the hang of it and this became a favourite feature.
Wheeled toys like this are great for encouraging children to move around while playing, promoting exercise and strengthening arm and leg muscles. Children also loved using it for their farmyard small world play; this helps develop their imagination, promotes speech (through ‘sound effects’ with younger children) and can be a good opportunity for older children to learn how to share.
