So I got my list and went off to HMR Adriatico Branch. I love spending some time there rummaging through sale items. They are on a holiday sale by the way. So anyway, the hubby got his hands on a Hape toy while searching for some toys and was I the happiest Mom in the place. It was still in good condition and costs only Php349. Of course, I definitely had to get it cause it originally costs Php1,500 online and in shops.
Here's what's inside a Meine Kleine Welt toy from Hape. It is made from Switzerland so the language is in Swiss but they also sell in other countries like Canada and the US. In the Philippines, they are distributed in Toys R Us and Robinson's Department Stores.
It is a five piece toy and a small board book that can be used while playing. It is made of quality wood and painted with non-toxic paint.
The wagon has the sheep on it and can be attached to the back of the Tractor.
Sorry for the little hand and foot photobombing the photo. ;)
The farmboy is also made of wood but its hat and feet are of plastic.
Was not able to take a photo of the sheep because it is the little boy's favorite.
The board book tells about a day in the life of a farmboy. Not sure though if it has writings in it because the one we bought were just pictures. Saw the online version and the language was still in Swiss so was kinda happy it was a picture book instead.

Benefits of playing with Kleine Meine Welt Tractor:
1. It enhances pretend play. Enzo has learned to play by himself while making a story out of his toys.
2. Improves his Fine Motor Skills. The small pieces of the farmboy and the sheep fits perfectly in the slots and Enzo has learned to put it on the right space. Attaching the wagon to the tractor makes him concentrate very well too.
3. It is a great way to start teaching farm life. The lessons has a lot of possible sub topics like farm animals, vegetables, fruits, and so much more. Great material for homeschoolers.
4. It's wood and it durable. Less breakage less waste:)
