“My Little Farm”

The perfect sensory tool for helping
preemies build early language skills!
By Smart Felt Toys

As the parent of a preemie that was 30 weeks and struggled with both sensory skills and language skills, one look at the Smart Felt Toys “My Little Farm” an interactive felt playset and I am captivated by it. Where the average age-appropriate toys for 3+ are filled with a noise that is overwhelming to sensitive ears, this is a joy for both preemie parent/child and providers of speech and occupational therapies.

With a solid farmhouse structure built thanks to velcro strips, this set is portable and easily set up in less than 30 seconds. The felt farm animals and items are soft and pleasing to little hands and promote a favorite talking point for farm-goers and zoo visitors alike: animals. The result is a plethora of opportunities to engage in speech and imaginative play.

Lest you think that this is a toy that would be used only once or twice, each of the 32 felt pieces, as the company notes, “addresses an early language concept. Every piece has a purpose!” And as noted also on the company website, “My Little Farm promotes:

  • Receptive and expressive language
  • Visual attention and processing
  • Following simple directions
  • Conversation and dialogue
  • Answering who, what, where, when, why, and how questions
  • Vocabulary building
  • Building grammar
  • Matching skills
  • Storytelling”

Whether you are a parent on lockdown struggling to keep developmental milestones moving ahead or you are a provider attempting to do distance learning with your patient, My Little Farm creates a perfect opportunity for lots of play and practice, too.
