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
