Why Do Kids Love Farm Toys So Much?

It's hard to say exactly why children have what seems like an innate obsession with farm life but it's a good thing that they do.

According to Scholastic Parents, children interacting with farm animals (which extends to farm toys) aids in the development of speech. Scholastic says that as children learn to say what the animals are and the sounds they make, that lays the foundation for using those sounds to pronounce other words. 

Learning to say "moo" isn't just adorable, it's the groundwork for words like "true," "shoe," and "you." 

There's some history to back this up as well. Orbis Sensualium Pictus, published in 1658, is considered to be the first children's picture book. The English translation of the title is The World of Things Obvious to the Senses drawn in Pictures, which is a bit wordy but does describe a lot of kid's books today.

The first chapter of Orbis Sensualium Pictus is about farm animals and all the different sounds they make. It's pretty incredible how much things are so different and yet the same.

Looking For Tractor Toys for Toddlers?

Keep an eye on the age ranges as a lot of tractor toy sets can have small parts that can be swallowing hazards and aren't ideal for toddlers.

Bright Starts makes a John Deere 4-in-1 Activity Walker for kids six months and up which can be transformed from a pre-walker to a walker to a push walker.
