Imagine my surprise when I rolled up at work one morning to find a Tractor Ted parcel on my desk – much to the delight of my 5yr old son William.
William insisted on taking the DVD, activity book & stickers to our Caravan and believe me “he enjoyed every moment” (Simon and I actually managed to get some “us time”).
The goodies were passed on to a Child Minder friend of mine, gasps of joy and screams of excitement were heard when the package was opened – they had terrific fun playing with the “crayons for little hands” and they played with the bath squirters in the garden. "Childminder Stockport"
Here is a little bit about Tractor Ted in Tractorland : Tractor Ted is the star of the hit series of books and DVDs about farming and the countryside based on real life for preschool children from two to six years old.
Tractor Ted is the creation of mother-of-three, Alexandra Heard and Somerset organic farmer, David Horler, whose children all loved to watch the real machines at work on the farm when they were young.
Tractor Ted is now 11 years old with a series of 17 DVDs and 11 books (including activity books) which take children on a wonderful journey into the British countryside where they can learn about big machines, how to look after animals, where our food comes from and the seasons. Tractor Ted is with them every step of the way, encouraging children and always making sure that everything turns out well. From this incredibly popular series has come an entire Tractor Ted world for pre-school children of books, gifts, clothing and live events.
