Made a toy machine shed for my farm-obsessed tween for Christmas. He has (what feels like) every piece of farm machinery under the sun, and so many other toys seem so baby-ish or boring that we decided to make this for him. You can see more details in my blog posts under the Christmas Gifts series here.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great (and he better appreciate it)!

But watch out in a few years that it doesn’t get trashed. Tweens can do that sometimes, In a decade (or 2), he may have a kid of his own pass it on to or as in the case of my son, a very junior cousin that was entranced with it.

Really nice. I remember playing with my toy machinery when I was young in a barn and farm set my dad made me… oh wait, I STILL enjoy playing farm with my kids!! Keep up the building!

Looks just like the one on my uncles sugar beat farm back in Michigan.

Thanks everyone! :-) So far he has been enjoying it, and has even asked me to paint his plastic barn to match it…we’ll have to see, but the magic 8 ball is currently saying not likely. ;-)
