One of the leading baby and children toys company HABA is celebrating their 75th Anniversary, and have invited 75 of us to review a fantastic range of their products. From today for the next three days we'll be reviewing HABA's On the Farm Large Playset, Come with Us! We Are Learning Colours book and Bear Domino Cards.

The On the Farm Large Playset (£34.76, suitable for 18months+) comes in a sturdy carrier box, which opens up as the playset's backdrop. There are 22 quality and brightly coloured wooden pieces in the box, each of them with detailed drawings. There is farmer Tim, his tractor, 1 cow, pig, horse, rooster, hen, goose, cat and dog (all painted with details on both sides), and 1 milk churn and manger, 2 straw bales and bushes, 3 trees and fences.

The wooden pieces are chunky enough for little hands to hold, and they are colourful and really cute to play with as well. Unlike many other playsets, this one comes with a booklet showing you 5 ways of using the playset for imagination play as well as a support for education purpose. For example, the booklet included a story that the parent can play out with the playset. As I'm not a very creative person, I tend to let my children play it the way they want to. The booklet certainly inspired me with ways of playing with my children and their toys!

Clay has been really good with imaginary play and sometimes act out his favourite TV episodes with the related playsets. Having seen many farm shows such as The Big Barn Farm on CBeebies, he knew exactly how he wanted to play with the set!
