Tennessee show co-hosted by John Deere toy maker

Posted by Green Fun Store on 11/5/2010 to Farm Lifestyle
John Deere toys and other items will mostly likely play a part during an upcoming show in Jackson, Tennessee.

According to the Jackson Sun, November 19-20 will see the 21st annual West Tennessee Toy Farm Show, which will be held in the city's Fairgrounds Park. Jim Rogier, who has played co-host to the event throughout its tenure, told the paper it always draws a large group of people.

Darryl Cox works along Rogier as the events other co-host. He has taken to creating John Deere toy tractors and other farm implements.

"You just take raw material and carve it out, and try to make each individual piece as close as possible, and hope it comes out looking like the real thing," Cox told the paper. "You try to make them as detailed as possible."

Rogier, 79, said he will eventually step down from co-hosting, and he told the Sun he hopes Cox will continue on leading the toy show.

While not everyone will be able to attend the event in Tennessee, there are other ways consumers can pick up John Deere toys. Similar shows occur across the country, and searching the internet also provides an option.
