A robust traditionally styled set of chunky wooden picture blocks, colour printed on both sides with real images of farm animals, farmers, scenery and a tractor. Perfect for young children to engage in imaginative play and develop their descriptive language skills.
The 20mm birch plywood blocks are smooth to touch and easy for young children to handle. They are free-standing and can be used in creative themed play or for learning about animals, food and crops.
Having realistic images will enable younger children to make comparisons with real animals and items commonly found around a farm, and encourage older children to visualise characters in story-telling and creative writing.

What the PPS testers said:
“These blocks provide a great prompt for developing imagination and small world play. They are strong, durable and practical. The pictures are visually appealing for all ages and they can be added to other toys or played with on their own. They are great for increasing vocabulary, talking about people who help us and learning about the world."
"A lovely product. The chunky pieces are suitable for little hands with no choking hazard. Each block is double sided with real images to promote language skills in very young children, through small world play. The blocks are hard-wearing and could easily withstand rough play. Good value for money as we believe they will last for many years. The perfect resource for any early years setting."
