I got a copy of Kurtis Foote’s “How to Make Wooden Farm Toys”. I followed the plans. They are very well drawn. The instructions are simple. And the diagrams are completely accurate when it comes time to cut and assemble the toys. I live on a hay and silage farm. Three of my grandsons live on the opposite side of a 10-acre field. They love to play with farm toys. These toys have been a huge hit with my grandsons.
I painted these to look like John Deere farm implements. The majority of the equipment on our farm is John Deere.
My grandson, age 3, really loves playing with the combine. He can change the heads by himself. The bean head rotates as the combine is pushed. It is a fun, fun toy.
If anyone wants to make a batch of toys for the coming holidays, these excellent plans will fill the bill. I cannot rate these plans high enough.
