Farm Toys: A Growing (and Valuable) Trend

For more than 100 years, farm toys have been collected by children and adults alike. While some farm toys don’t hold much value, you may be surprised to find that others are worth $10,000 or more.

In the farm toy collecting world, some brands are more valuable than others. Keep an eye on these names:

  • John Deere
  • Ertl Co.
  • McCormick Farmall

Just the same as many toys — and other collectibles — age, rarity, and condition have a lot to do with value. For example, older toys that were produced in small quantities are generally more valuable than newer toys that were mass-produced.

Let’s take a look at some of the top sellers over the past year:

  • John Deere 1010 Crawler Tractor: $8,800
  • John Deere 7020 Tractor: $990
  • New Holland Starter Set of Farm Toys: $10,400
  • Ford 7710 Tractor: $242
  • John Deere 7B Plow: $1,540

If you have any of these toys, there’s no better time than now to examine them closely. You may realize that you have something that’s worth hundreds or maybe even thousands of dollars.

And for those who want to add to their collection, there are options for doing so. The best deals are often found at estate sales, garage sales, and flea markets. Keep your eyes open!
