Complete Set for Introducing Children to Stringing

Painted in bright colors with sweet details, the wooden String a Farm pieces include standard farm animals as well as a red barn, a yellow tractor, and a fruit tree. Each piece has a lengthwise hole for stringing.

The set includes a child-sized wooden needle attached to a yellow string. A small silo is attached to the end of the string, acting as a stopper to keep the strung pieces from sliding off the other end.

Colorful Design Encourages Children to Explore Farm Life

The chunky figures included in String a Farm are thick enough to stand up on their own, allowing children to use them to act out farm scenes. The whimsical designs and bright colors will delight the tot-sized crowd. You're sure to hear your child's favorite animal noises as they explore the textures, shapes, and colors of the String a Farm.

Ideal for Teaching Counting and Improving Dexterity

Stringing the animals improves dexterity and helps children master fine motor skills. String a Farm can also be used to help children follow sequences and introduce basic counting, colors, and vocabulary.

Sturdy Construction Provides Long-Lasting Value

Our testers enjoyed making the animal noises as they threaded each animal with the wooden needle. Even though they also enjoyed letting the strung animals crash to the floor after they were finished stringing them, the sturdily constructed pieces did not show any signs of damage after several rounds of rough play.

What's in the Box

Twelve wooden beads and cotton lace with needle and stopper.

Great for fine motor skills development!!

We also use these animals without the string, so she can play with all the farm pieces.

I bought this String a Farm for my handicapped daughter, not knowing whether she could string the blocks or not, but to my amazement she figured it out immediately! This toy is very easy for her to handle and manuever and she was so pleased with her success! Highly recommend this sturdy toy.

This toy is terrific for two-year-olds. My daughter loves stringing the animals and other farm related beads. She especially likes the tractor and the chickens. The farm pieces do make quite a noise when dumped off the string, but that doesn't bother us. This toy is durable, colorful, and fun.

My two year old loves this product, I love it because the "needle" is quite long and allows her to (relatively) easily slide the "beads" on. My twelve month old also loves this product! The animals are all smooth, no rough edges, so no safety concerns. You can do so much with this product aside from physical manipulation with the hands, but you can also teach about animals, colors, etc. I highly recommend this product and will be purchasing this product as a birthday gift for other two year olds! Well worth the money!!!!

My daughter received this as a gift for her 2nd birthday. We didn't think she'd quite be able to string the pieces on by herself, but within 15 minutes of trying it she got the hang of it and could do it with no help. It really keeps her busy as she's stringing the farm pieces, but she also loves to stand all the pieces up and play with them without the string. An excellent toy!

I love the great shapes and illustrations on the beads for this stringing toy. I think it is superior to most stringing sets because each bead is different and that can encourage imaginative play. My main issue is that once my daughter learned how to string the beads once (didn't take long), she was done. She has only stringed the beads a total of 5 times in the time we have owned it. Maybe other children enjoy these toys more but it wasn't a huge hit at my house. The bonus was that the beads are large, high quality wood and can be used to act out farm scenes.

My 16 month old granddaughter loves it. Very easy for her to string animals and learn the different type's.
The only negative thing is, it's made in China. Little kids put the blocks in their mouth. I hope the paint on the blocks is safe.

Too bad, we can't manufacture it in the U.S.A.

This is really cute. If you are going to decorate with it, perfect! If you are purchasing it for a toy, don't! After literally the first hour, the paint was coming off of the animals and they were trash. Very disappointing. My little boy loves farm animals and I thought this would be perfect for him. Very poor quality.
