Who is Tractor Ted?

I had never heard of Tractor Ted until I was asked to review some Tractor Ted products with the children in my care. The children I care for hadn’t heard of Tractor Ted either.

So who is Tractor Ted?

Tractor Ted is a little green tractor and children's farming superhero. The adorable little tractor shares real-life farm stories about farming and the countryside.

We were sent two paperback stories see images below;

Digger Time £6.99

Tractor Time £6.99

As you can see the images are beautifully presented with lovely ‘real life’ photographs. I read these books with the children I currently care for and took them along to a local group I run for parents and pre-school children.

The parents loved the educational benefits of these cute fun real-life farm adventures and discovery. The picture storybooks really engaged the younger children and all of the children listened with great interest.

Tractor Ted also brings real farm stories to life through a series of children's films. We have been watching some of these films this week and the children have thoroughly enjoyed them and I will definitely be continuing to share these wonderful ‘real life’ farming films to help educate the children in my care.

We were also sent a magic painting book see below;

Magic painting book £4.99

The magical painting book would make a perfect stocking filler present for little tractor fans. It has 4 super thick farm scenes that can be magically coloured in with the water pen. Each scene reveals something different on each page. Look at the photo below to get an idea;

Once the pages dry they can be used again and again. The pen can be filled with water and emptied. The book is of excellent quality and so is the pen. The pen is the perfect size for encouraging fine motor skills in young children.

I also like the idea of making a Tractor Ted Christmas Eve gift box. I just wish I’d heard about it years ago when my son Zac was younger. He’s always loved tractors and everything farm and was always asking questions that could have been answered in a fun educational way. That’s what Tractor Ted does, it’s been cleverly made with young children in mind.

We were also sent a Tractor Ted drinks bottle £4.99. The design is lovely and the quality and thickness of the bottle are great. It is BPA free but isn’t dishwasher or microwave safe. This bottle would also make a lovely stocking gift or would go great as a Christmas Eve box for little tractor fans.

Tractor Ted is the perfect way to teach your children all about potato harvesting, milking the cows and more. Check out Tractor Ted’s online fun zone with free printable colouring pictures and educational games.

I am a registered childminder and have been working with children for over 25 years. I have grown to understand what most children like throughout my experience. I think that Tractor Ted is a wonderfully fun way of educating younger children about farming.

We were sent these products to review, as always all thoughts and opinions remain our own.
