Farm toy collectors in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Fargo ND, and Mason City, Iowa, will rejoice tomorrow at 7am when the doors to Toyland open at Mills Fleet Farm locations. In addition to all of the other games and toys, this is the only time of year the stores stock a complete line of farm toys in all scales. Looking for that Ertl Farmall M I reviewed? You’ll see it on the shelves tomorrow.
For those of you not Familiar with Fleet Farm and its Toyland, you can liken it to the toy sections of the Sears stores that you grew up with. Remember when the Sears Wish Book arrived in the mail and you and your siblings scoured each page and circled all of the stuff you wanted? Well, receiving the Fleet Farm Toyland flyer in the mail is a comparable experience, but all of the folks I know who have been pouring over it this week are grown-up collectors.
For more information (and to find a store near you) go to their Web site: www.fleetfarm.com
I’ll see you folks at 7am tomorrow!
