    I am looking for a farm set for my friend's little girl. Everytime she comes over, she grabs my "barn" as she calls it, and plays with my set. I recieved mine as a child, have no idea where to find one now. My set has small animals, cows, pigs, geese, horses, sheep, etc. I have a few pieces of fencing as well.

    I've looked online at Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, and various other online sites. I haven't found anything like I am looking for. The little girl is old enough not to put things in her mouth, so small items are okay. I know Tractor Supply sells animal figures, but they are so expensive, and that is buying one piece at a time.

    Thank you for any suggestions!!

    I have seen them off and on at Tractor Supply, usually in the fall around fair time here.

    Try EBAY, your set sounds like the one that I had. Mine was a fisher price set, there out there! lol Try also looking at stores that sell used childrens toys and clothing. We have them here that are called Once Upon a child!

    I used to work at a TSC and we had them there all of the time. Esp. during October-December for Christmas...some totally awesome sets. There is a really neat set made of wood with really neat fencing etc. She'll love it! Several sets came with really neat animals too. They also have less expensive ones that are plastic.

    If your store doesn't have one on hand have them check with other stores and see if they'll transfer one to your store. I used to do it for my customers all of the time. Hopefully, they'll still be able to do that for you.

    Thank you. I hadn't thought about Goodwill.
