Friendship is a beautiful thing, but when playtime results in chaos, someone needs to tidy up. The animals on the farm have made a mess of things, so the Smart Farmer’s goal is to put away each animal into his own pasture. However, the farmer has only three fences to divide his field into separate meadows for the horses, cows, sheep, and pigs. Please don’t forget, each meadow will need its own source of water. With 60 different challenges, Smart Farmer teaches spatial insight, planning, concentration, problem-solving, and flexible thinking.
Challenges: 60, easy to expert
CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

”I think Timberdoodle is spot on with including this in Kindergarten with the average 5 or 6-year-old being able to complete the challenges, possibly for years to come.”Read the Review

”If you are thinking about a curriculum for building thinking skills, this game might be perfect for your 5-10 year old! It's cute, fun, and very educational.”Read the Review
The puzzles are a great way to fill in gaps. My son who is 5 loves puzzles and gets really excited when we tell him he gets to play the farm game. If we dont stop him he would do all of the puzzles in a day. It starts off easy and then gets harder as time goes on.
My daughter that's in Pre-K finds this to be a bit too hard for her however it's perfect for my 6 yr old (1st grader). As soon as he started getting the hang of it he started flying through some of the more challenging puzzles. Such a great game to keep them thinking, good for independent work, and this is one of our favorite 'Smart Games'. We like how there's many different animals and more challenging puzzles you need to use the water troughs. Highly recommended!!
I love this game! It encouraged critical thinking, planning ahead and organized thought. My son has autism and this game was a great tool for me. The playful farm design caught his attention and made him excited to learn the "rules". From there, he thrived with the tasks and did better with it than I anticipated. This was a good activity for both of us and it boosted our confidence!
I could have done without this game. It is similar in style to the Red Riding Hood so I don't think we necessarily needed both. It is fun, but my son definitely gravitates to his other thinking skills games first.
I bought the kindergarten curriculum when my son was 4.5 and this game was way too hard for him. It really is meant for a 5 year old. He's almost 5 now and we brought it back out. He loves it! I'm glad we waiting for him to be a little older. There are good challenges that make him think.
