TOMY is taking a sustainable approach to the current trend for toy unboxing through the latest launch from its Britains brand, Farm in a Box, marking the arrival of a new line the sees the packaging become part of the total play experience.
Toys in the Farm in a Box range arrive in a cardboard box that unfolds and transforms into a farmyard scene itself, allowing children to incorporate the packaging into their imaginative play. Each box will house an authentic 1:32 scale model John Dere tractor, trailer, loader, hay bales, fencing and animals to play with.
Billed as a first of its kind for TOMY and the Britains brand, Farm in a Box also features colour-in scenes for children to get creative with, while the box can also fold out to double up as a trailer attachment, a milking parlour, a series of animal pens, stables, and more. On top of this, each part of Farm in a Box fits back together, making for some handy storage, too.
The specially designed box is also made of recycled card and features durable, precision-molded toys.
