On the FarmThis farm set with characters, vehicles and animals is a delightful introduction to toddlers on how to remove pieces in a puzzle, construct a barn, name words within a play scheme and try a first game! Thoughtful instruction tips guide parents on how to use the set most effectively for building vocabulary, asking age appropriate questions, encouraging free play and playing a game. Start by opening the barn like a book, identifying all the animals and objects from pigs, chicks and bunnies to tools and bales of hay. Talk through the illustrations on the outside of the barn with the fruit stand, conveyor with bales of hay and parked tractor. Kids love to snap out the windows and door as a puzzle experience so they can peer inside. Add the base and roof and you have a perfect house for your barnyard friends. Practice your animal sounds as you match and place your cut-out figures next to corresponding pictures on the barn. Take the play up a notch with a matching game as you switch game figures and others have to guess who moved!
