This wooden toy is not only fun but it has several educational and development advantages too. With enthusiasm, children will be able to train their fine motor skills and practise shape recognition whilst playing with the Farm Set. There are 18 farm themed wooden figures which can be threaded onto 2 laces. Threading has many benefits for young children - it is the first step to learning how to write. Threading helps to train fine motor skills, develops hand-eye coordination and improves concentration. The wooden Farmhouse, with six geometric shapes, serves as a shape sorter as well as a crate to store the wooden pieces.
