My son may have just started in Year Four but he still loves small world play as much as ever and farm machinery features heavily in his imaginative play. These days he’s even more aware of the details in his toys, and the new Massey Ferguson 5612 Tractor Play Set from Britains Farm Toys is no exception.
The Massey Ferguson 5612 Tractor Play Set comes with the Massey Ferguson 5612 tractor, a detachable double bale lifter, two hay bales as well as a collection of cows, pigs, sheep and chickens.
The Massey Ferguson 5612 Tractor Play Set is aimed at those aged 3 years and over and is a 1:32 scale replica set. The tractor itself is a mix of die cast metal and plastic parts, but is made to last and withstand a lot of play.
The front and rear hitches are adjustable and the steering wheel turns when the front wheels move. The rear hitch can be used with the full range of Britains 1:32 accessories.
The double bale lifter fixes to the back hitch. It did take my son and I a while to figure out how this particular attachment worked but we got there in the end.
The hay bales sit nicely on the lifter and when it’s time to unload them you just press the button on the top of the lifter which drops the forks and releases the bales.
My son was soon setting to work delivering hay to his new farm animals.
The Massey Ferguson 5612 Tractor Play Set is a great addition to his collection and would also make a good starting point for any first time young farmer to begin their collection.
We are long-standing fans of the Britains Farm Toys range here. Their vehicles and accessories are made to last and we can confirm their durability. These are toys that you can keep for future generations to enjoy in my opinion. I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link below for the Massey Ferguson 5612 Tractor Play Set for your reference.
