The Half Acre Field for Imaginative Play

Disclaimer:  We received product to facility this posting.  No monetary compensation was exchanged.  All OPINIONS stated are solely those of the author.

This, my friends, in my humble opinion, is one of the BEST offerings to spark imaginative play.  And that is saying a lot, coming from me…mother of 10 and grandmother of 26.

Yes, kids are “more sophisticated”, for lack of a better term, these days. I routinely see tots at just a year old, engrossed in their parents smart phones. Tablets are as common as balls and jacks were, in my day.  Little ones are glued to screens for hours on end.  Yes, that keeps them busy, but is it really the best thing for them.  In moderation, I see no harm, but I hate that kids must be entertained, instead of entertaining themselves.

Enter, a patch of grass, some hedges and fencing…and let the fun begin. I’m telling you, once they get over the shock, they will spend hours with this.

About The Half Acre Field

Created in Ireland, The Field toy helps inspire real world, screen-free, and imaginative play. This must-have field toy is free of batteries and features lush green grass, hedging, traditional wooden farm gates, farm animals, a tractor, and more! Creative play is proven to have intellectual, emotional and social benefits, and The Field toy is the perfect way to help boys and girls ages 3+ get away from the screens and use their own ingenuity to develop a farm world right in front of their eyes. It is available in two sizes: the original Field, 26” x 17”, as well as a Half Acre Field, 12” x 17”

How often do you hear a whiny voice proclaiming “I’m bored”?  Not in my day (yes, I’m OLD).  If we said we were bored, I can guarantee you that we were given something to do…and it wasn’t fun.  You learned very quickly to remove that phrase from your vocabulary.  Kids are bored now days because they often haven’t been given the chance to learn how to play.

With The Half Acre Field, isn’t just a meadow or pasture…it’s anything they want it to be.  A back yard for their dolls, a rugby field, maybe even a jungle…and yes, at some point {sigh} it will probably end up being a battle ground of some sort.  

Of course, you can buy some farm animals, tractors and the like, but chances are, your kiddos have plenty of things already at hand, that will find their way to the field. Sort of like the baseball field…build it and they will come – buy it and they will find a way to make it their own.

Head on over to Amazon and pick up one or two today…it will be a gift that keeps on giving.  The Nonnie Approves!
