Britains celebrates centenary with farm fun at The Big Sheep

Families can take part in a special activity trail and win Britains toys in a special social media photograph competition. 

Britains is marking its centenary year by teaming up with farming theme park The Big Sheep to celebrate 100 years of the iconic British farming toys and collectibles brand.

The collaboration with the Devon based attraction follows a similar partnership with the Rural Farm Life Living Museum in Surrey and, like that one, will run for three months. Alongside its thrilling rides and rollercoasters, The Big Sheep is also full of agriculture-filled activities and visitors can enjoy the Britains-inspired toy trail, where seven Britains posters will be hiding around the park for families to find along the way. There is also an activity sheet to keep children entertained throughout the day.

There are plenty of photo opportunities available to capture memories of the day along with a special Britains photo frame. Visitors who upload their best snap with the frame to Facebook or Instagram will be in with a chance of winning one of Britains fantastic prizes of over £100 worth of Britains Farm Toys, including Farm in a Box, JCB 6T Dumper, Land Rover Horse Playset and International Harvester Farmall 1066 Tractor.

Mary Wood, General Manager UK and Ireland at Tomy, said: “This centenary year is an incredible milestone for the Britains brand, which is why we have arranged plenty of exciting partnerships to help us and our wonderful fans celebrate this landmark. While we have many avid collectors of the brand who have added to their vast collection of Britains products over the years, the brand is also iconic with today’s generation, which is why we have teamed up with The Big Sheep to create an experience that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

“The Big Sheep activity trail is filled with ways to keep kids entertained and has created a really exciting day out where children can learn and play – perfect for the summer holidays. We’re so thankful to The Big Sheep team for helping us celebrate our 100-year anniversary, and hope it fills families’ summers with heaps of entertainment.”

Rick Turner of The Big Sheep said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with Britains to help mark its incredible 100-year anniversary. We have created a unique experience for farming friends and families that visit the venue, and the added Britains surprises will provide even more excitement here at The Big Sheep. We can’t wait for everyone to come down and take part in the fun and we’re looking forward to seeing all of the fab pictures as a result of our social media competition.”

The Britains event at The Big Sheep runs for the rest of the attraction’s 2021 season. To find out more visit
