Sometimes I will spend hours browsing stores or Amazon searching for something I think my relatives and friends might like for birthdays or Christmas. I want to give them gifts that they will really treasure and love. If you are like me and you are looking at that list of people you need to buy Christmas gifts for, you may be having trouble deciding what to get for everyone.
John Deere Gifts has great toys and gifts for those special people on your list, especially the kids! John Deere is not only a leading company and manufacturer of farm tractors and equipment and lawn mowers, but they also have fun and exciting toys and other gifts.
When our box of John Deere toys arrived on our porch, my oldest son was ecstatic! He was jumping up and down as I opened the box. Our box included five fun John Deere toys:
- John Deere Mega Bloks dump truck
- John Deere 1:16 Big Farm Lights & Sounds Pickup With Skidsteer And Trailer
- John Deere Classic 1953 720 1:16 die-cast replica
- John Deere Mini Farm Projector (This would be a unique and perfect stocking stuffer!)
- John Deere Johnny Tractor and Friends Adventure Set
The John Deere Mega Bloks dump truck is perfect for my little guy (just turned one). I showed him how to stack the Mega-Bloks together and he picked them up and put them together himself – he loves it! The Mega-Bloks toy is a big hit for my little “engineer-minded” son and it will be a favorite for him for many months to come. The dump truck also doubles as a walking toy for him, since he is not yet walking on his own. It is made of sturdy plastic and the dump truck is “heavy” enough for my little guy to balance himself while standing or walking!
- Sturdy, John Deere branded truck with tilting bin and big wheels
- An amazing value of 20 big blocks
- John Deere trucker figurine
- Compatible with all John Deere by Mega Bloks products
My little guy also enjoys his cute characterized Corey Combine tractor. (Fun and stories about these characters can be found in John Deere books.) The 9-piece set is made from soft plastic, so they are safe for the younger kiddos 18 months and up.
My four year old loves his new John Deere Big Farm 1/16th Scale Model Silverado pickup and trailer with the skidsteer. He really likes having a truck and tractor to push around the floor that isn’t matchbox size. This toy comes with real life lights and sounds and a hood that really opens, which, of course, delight and entertain him even more! This toy is made of child-friendly hard plastic and seems to be pretty durable. (There are two moveable parts that fall off occasionally, but they are easy to snap back on.) Plus, it is full of features that your little one will love. (Recommended for ages 3 and up.)
- Pickup features horn and engine sounds (activated by buttons in the toolbox of the pickup) and headlights
- Truck’s hood opens to reveal engine
- Skidsteer comes with detachable and pivoting bucket loader and forks – loader arm raises and lowers
- Skidsteer has horn and 3 different engine sounds (activated by buttons on cab roof) and front cab lights
- Utility trailer features fold down rear ramp for easy loading and a dolly leg to stabilize trailer when not hitched to vehicle
My favorite of the toys is the detailed die cast 1:16 replica. I love the classic, clean and authentic look and the imagination that this tractor can bring. I know this is one of those toys that will be enjoyed by both my boys for many years and even possibly be passed on to future grandkids! The die cast metal (with a few plastic parts) of this toy makes it suitable for collectors and older kids only, as little ones might end up injuring themselves. (Being a collector’s item, it is recommended for Ages 14+.)
Features include: underneath exhaust, front weights, and waffle style rear wheels, three point hitch, throttle and shift levers.
Both of my boys have enjoyed a new addition to our bed-time routine: Looking at the farm animal images projected on the ceiling as we tuck them in to bed. My older one, of course, is very good at naming the animals when we shine them on the ceiling and my little guy will certainly learn them quickly! My oldest also loves to use the projector as his very own flashlight. The flashlight is made of hard plastic and rubber (tire) and is suitable for older children only (the 6 small interchangeable image filters are possibly a choking hazard for younger children).
