.This Wooden Play Farm Series Silo is handcrafted of Ponderosa White Pine, finished with non-toxic paint and rubbing oil. It is heat and water resistant washable and funtastic.
Our wooden play farm silo is a fully playable variety of the real thing. The glass marbles are inserted into the round hole near the top in the canope roof, but before doing so you must first have the flat “Slat” ( a thin piece of wood, black in color), inserted into the slot below the hole. After loading the grain (glass marbles), the slat can be withdrawn slowly or pulled out quickly. The grain (glass marbles) will be heard “(clickity clacking” all the way down thru the maze inside the silo until they exit out the spout near the bottom.
This unseen, but heard sound tickles the imagination of the young and the old alike. Youngsters will get their head right down eye level with the bottom of the spout to look to see if they can view what is happening. It will mesmerize both old and young whereas they repeat the process over and over and over again because they just can’t see what really happens inside, but they can hear it. The silo is blue with a black canopy roof.
Our wooden toys are created for the safety and education of all. While having fun, learning skills are very apparent. These wooden toys help develop dexterity, hand and eye coordination, color, shape, size identification problem solving and reasoning skills plus’many more.
