For our rather urban children, used to being wheeled around the streets of London, Tractor Ted has been something of a revelation, opening up a world of muck spreading, harvesting, sheep, cows and farm machinery that has provided endless entertainment for our little pavement pounders.
(So much so that a move to the country has been mooted…. Most likely we’ll get round to it when the kids are teenagers and want to be in London, not on a farm, thank you very much, but we’ll see.)

Launched over 10 years ago as a series of DVDs and books, as the popularity of Tractor Ted has grown, so too has the range, which now encompasses, clothing, gifts, farm toys, audio downloads (great for long car journeys) days out, and other Tractor Ted events.
Our kids can’t get enough of it, so we decided to dedicate a whole ‘We Love’ feature to the joys of Tractor Ted and even persuaded them to offer a 15% discount to readers.
Mumfidential’s Tractor Ted offer:
Especially for Mumfidential Readers, Tractor Ted is offering an exclusive 15% off the entire range until 31st December 2015.

Here are some of our top picks:
Meet Les the farmer with his shiny new tractor. Poor Les, his day doesn’t go to well and he ends up getting very wet. With real-life farm footage, fun, adventures and a few songs to join in with too, plus additional reindeer footage, this is a real winner – and something to keep the kids quiet while you sleep off lunch on Christmas Day.
One of our boys’ favourite toys, this tractor trailer combo would make a lovely Christmas present for some lucky little person, offering hours of fun, bundling the wooden animal toys into the trailer and wheeling the tractor around the house, oops, we mean the farm.
Released earlier this year, this DVD includes lots of baby farm animals and plenty of big machine footage to keep everyone happy. Fudge the dog shows Tractor Ted around the farm, introducing him to newborn lambs, calves being fed and piglets snuggled up in bed as JCBs and tractors rumble by and catchy songs abound.
A great Christmas stocking filler to keep those vehicle-lovers happy, this line drawn colouring book comes with four pages of digger and dumper stickers. Heaven.
Part of a new range of Tractor Ted clothing, this Bobble Hat makes a great buy for Tractor Ted fans this winter. Soft and snuggly, it’s been flying off the shelves (apparently).
