  • ELC: Past and present wooden farm sets - Toy Farmers
    in total including the main building in the barn the stables shed and coop This all sits on a baseboard that can be positioned as you like ELC Cobblestone Farm Highly realistic ELC farm with five big farm buildings The release of Cobblestone Farm was always going to let down parents But well this model does show plenty of character is just lacked colour and perhaps just a little to realistic But as normal in the range it came with plenty of buildings with lots of features The main building is the barn or cow shed with the big swinging doors farmhouse stable animal and sheep pen and of course the chicken coop This farm sat on a big square base with a track pond and plenty of space to sit the buildings ELC Rosebud Village Farm Pink toy farm for girls with lots of accessories ELC s long list of toy farm design has always stuck to the same theme which appeal to both boys and girls But what better way to get girls interested more than a specially made farm set for girls finished in pink with light playful colours But where there s a pink toy farm needs matching accessories and add ons and ELC have provided all this for you in the set with farm animals farm people and a few panels of fencing ELC Wooden Farm Play Set ELC farm buildings used as stand alone or grouped together A wooden farm set with lots of character but without the need of a fancy friendly name This ELC Wooden Farm Play Set is very different from the range but really only a few things separates it A few things you ll notice in this set are no baseboard much bigger buildings and the whole set centred around a big red American style barn So with the barn features a swing opening door and a sliding door on the side 2 stall stable shed and set of 4 slot together fencing panels ELC Wooden Farm Minimal effect was put into this early release with both the design and name of the item lacking But this doesn t deprive a very good farm set offering lots of activity and is effective today then it was back then and a cheaper item to buy The slot together method still was going strong then but the unattractive colour of the MDF showed through on the surface and the unpainted edges making a very dull toy farm But well very effective access inside the buildings can be accessed through the roofs thanks to a thick green tape holding the roof panels together The ELC Wooden Farm included three buildings used as a tractor shed barn or animal pen with a chicken coop and pig sty included ELC Classic Farm Playset Product naming back then lacked imagination but as we know today ELC began to give their farm sets friendly names like Cobblestone or Brambledale But it might be a push calling
