Farm toy show gives collectors a trip down memory lane
Posted by Green Fun Store on 3/22/2011 to Farm Lifestyle
Hundreds of enthusiasts appeared at the 2011 Farm Toy Show at the Christensen Field Main Arena in Fremont, Nebraska, to buy and gawk at pieces of farm memorabilia history. The booths were full of farm collectibles, manuals, toys, agricultural implements and more.
For one youngster, however, the best piece at the show was a replica diecast tractor from John Deere. "It's something fun to do," Ryan Foreman of Iowa, told the news outlet after purchasing the truck. "I like to see the young kids spending money on something other than video games," adds Larry Welch, the vendor that sold Foreman the toy.
Welch started his collection when he began to restore his children's old toy tractors and began selling the pieces not too long after.
Construction collectibles like these are a fun way to get away from the hardships of farm life and to indulge in a bit of fun.
