TOMY John Deere Pre-school range

When Clay became a toddler, one of the things I worried about was that he would be into guns and swords. I like children and love mine to bits, but I absolutely hate children pointing a toy gun at people doing "pew pew pew", and the last thing I want is Clay doing exactly that. Luckily, so far, Clay is more into cars and vehicles than toy weapons, and since he love role-playing, I knew he'd love TOMY's new John Deere pre-school range. We were sent:

- Suitable for 18months to 3 years old, includes 2 AA batteries. Plays 2 tunes and 4 animal sounds. When ride moves, the pigs will tumble and the hayroll will roll forward. A donkey, cow and goat will pop out from the hayroll while it moves as well.

By now Clay already knew that pictures had to be taken before he can play with the toys, but how could he resist? He played with them even though they were still attached to the boxes, which didn't seem to bother him at all. He has taken great interest in the County Fair Wagon Ride, especially after noticing that it plays tunes! The last picture above was of him dancing to the tune.

I like how they connect the ride parts together. Although you can't detach them, you'll be sure that they will be staying together, and it swerves smoothly too. The head of the ride is made of a thick silicone type material, so no worries IF a preschooler bumped his/ her head on it!

I really adore the Farm Adventure Playset (suitable for 18months to 3 years)! We were sent the horse playset, but they also have a pig and a cow to choose from. The horse on wheels is just so cute! Each part of the playset is easy for toddlers and preschoolers to hold as well. The hay bale fits snugly on the trailer, which can be easily hooked onto the mini tractor. The playset also comes with 6 hookable fences to enhance role-play fun! This will certainly make a lovely first time farm playset.

- 20 piece playset, including 2 farmers, horse, cow, goat and chicken, a crate of tomatoes, 2 hale bales, 4 fences, Spinning harvester with rocking hopper, harvester with movable claw, a tractor with hoppable seat, a tractor with hood that can be opened, 2 pull along wagons and a tilting dump box; suitable for 18 months to 3 years

Now this is the farm set to buy for little farm play fans! With 4 farm vehicles, each with their own movable parts, they can pretend that they have a massive farm with each vehicle doing different things! As soon as I saw the set I thought of CBeebies Big Barn Farm! I think the only thing missing is the barn and the farm house for a complete farm experience! With 20 pieces it's definitely value for money, and it would make a fantastic birthday or Christmas gift.

Clay really enjoyed playing with his new farm set. I left him playing while working on the blog, and heard the occasional role-play noises, proven that he was having fun! When I turned around I found that he's ordered the vehicles by size, and placed all the animals in the fenced area! Kids can really surprise us sometimes!

The TOMY John Deere pre-school range has other lovely toys as well, including a remote control vehicle and animal sounds hayride, you can check out their full range here, which are available online as well as in good toy stores.
