The Field from Class Grass - Imaginative Toy Review And Giveaway (age 3+)

The Field is an amazing toy product from Ireland that really is a game-changer. Your figures, animals and vehicles can have a really impressive backdrop instantly, and that's incredibly satisfying - even to a grown up. Well-made and impressively realistic, I can honestly say this has been far more of a hit here than I expected.


You're allowed to be sceptical, I was sceptical, but genuinely since I put The Compound and The Field out, our living room table has never seen so much use.


When your kids are playing, whatever world they are creating, it's on the floor or the table. Imagination and creativity are great, a carpet can become anything, but adding grass means your imagination is free to create the story. It's also a great starting point, this is instant outdoors.


We've been sent The Field and The Compound to review. Both are the same size, 63cm (24") x 44cm (17") and both are solid hardboard backed with the plastic grassy covering. The Compound is a straightforward grassy meadow.


The Field has a hedge around all sides and an incredibly cute opening wooden gate.


The toys are really well made. I like the quality and the attention to detail. The corners are really tight and the wooden gate is fixed by nails. This is a classic wooden toy upgraded and updated.


The length of hedging and grass is perfect because cars can wheel across it and figures can stand up, but it is still lush. It has a very tactile finish and spring, and you can't see the backing at all. These are a great base board for storing your toys between play - tuck it under the sofa out of the way.


Every The Field Toy product comes with a Title Deed that your child can fill out to prove ownership of their land. It's a nice touch. This is a toy that was developed entirely with play and children in mind, not to suit a fad, and any of your child's current imaginative or small world toys can be played with on it.



The Field and The Compound are both great for any imaginative 'outdoor' play that you can think of. We've already had farms, parks, gardens, a crime scene, a campsite and a village fair, and a lot of Jurassic Park. My boys are 8 and almost 10, so they're towards the top end of the age group for playing with The Field. I'm substantially older and I really like it for photos...


We were so impressed that we even tested the durability of The Compound by altering the weather slightly and introducing some snow. This combo is the most popular thing they've played with this year so far I reckon... (And it does all come off when you are done. You just remove most of it, wait for the rest to dry out and then tip that off).



Here's a quick video review showing more of that snowy logging operation...


The Field is a Class Grass Irish Product suitable for age 3+ and there are lots of different products available, starting at £19.99rrp for The Compound. The Field costs £39.99rrp.
