Tractor Ted is a cartoon green tractor who stars in books and DVDs about farming and the countryside using real life footage to children from two to six years old. He is the creation of two friends, 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.
Ted is now 11 years old and there is 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.
This March Tractor Ted’s Activity Book 2 (£4.99) is released.
Activities include recipes for Krispie Chicks and Easter Nests and working out where chicks, butterflies, daffodils and cheese come from (eggs, caterpillars, bulbs and milk).
We have 5 sets of the Tractor Ted Activity Book 2 and the
Spring Time DVD to giveaway.
