Looking at the Smyths catalogue to see what children want of Santa for Christmas is a tradition in many houses across the country.

Tractors and farm sets are among the most popular items for farming children at this time of year.

Five farming toys to look at getting for Christmas from the Smyths catalogue:

1.Radio-controlled New Holland tractor

Who doesn’t want a radio controlled tractor for Christmas?

This New Holland is suitable for children over the age of five and there’s no assembly required.

5. Mega Bloks Lil Vehicles John Deere Tractor

A John Deere and building blocks; perfect for any young budding farmer!

This is a sturdy, John Deere branded tractor with pronged building base, big wheels and six blocks.

It has a removable pronged roof that lets the little farmer build on top, or reveal a driver’s space for his included little tractor buddy.
