Guidecraft Big Red Barn Review


Founded by Fred Fein in 1966 in a woodshop in New York State, Guidecraft was built upon the foundation of smart, beautifully crafted wooden toys for children. In the 1980’s the company was expanded under the ownership and direction of Fred’s son – Jason Fein – to encompass consumer toys and furniture, along with an ever-growing portfolio of toys and furniture for the education market. In the mid 2000’s the company was further enhanced with the mission of providing exclusive toys and furniture to the domestic and international markets, as well as providing private-label supply chain, compliance, and distribution services to a growing roster of international brands in both the consumer and institutional markets.

Today, Guidecraft has an international presence with operations in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. We offer premiere-brand toys such as PowerClix®, Better Builders®, IO Blocks® and Texo®, along with a rich portfolio of manipulatives, construction and block play toys, occasional furniture, arts and storage furniture, household helpers, lofts and furniture systems, in partnership with local, national, and international distributors and retailers.


We pride ourselves on almost fifty years of manufacturing quality products that put children and safety first. To fulfill that mission, we design and test our products to meet or exceed international safety standards including ASTM, EN71, Health Canada and AUS/NZ to provide our customers with a safe, durable, and lasting product that will bring years of meaningful and rewarding use and enjoyment.

Environmental Certification

Environmental certification of materials is key to the development of responsible supply chain practices. To that end we use FSC certified solid wood and wood-based materials such as MDF and plywood. 

Our Big Red Barn’s iconic red structure and playful characters will become the central focus of any playroom. The sturdy wooden construction is topped with a sleek, durable plastic roof, and includes plastic window accents. Featuring a freestanding stable, chunky plastic-snap fence, sliding barn doors, 13 double-sided, wooden play characters, a wooden trough, and plastic staircase, the play possibilities are endless. Adult assembly required. Ages 2+. Barn and stable together measure 21″W x 8.5″D x 16″H.

My Review:
Guidecraft Big Red Barn is an awesome toy for kids! I absolutely love how well this Big Red Barn is made. It's completely made of wood and comes with pretend play characters and animals. My daughter loves farm animals so this was just perfect for her. She's been playing with this Big Red Barn every chance she gets. Guidecraft designs and tests their products to meet or exceed international safety standards which is just fantastic in my opinion. If you're looking for a toy that kids can play with for years to come this is it. It's made to last and provides hours of fun while reinforcing fine motor skills and enhancing imaginative play. 

I highly recommend this Guidecraft Big Red Barn!
