Greetings from Dyersville.

It’s nice to get January behind us and look forward to February being a short month. Even though it goes by quickly, February is always an exciting time for us.

We are busy getting ready for the New York Toy Fair at the Javits Convention Center. We’ll be showing off our 2017 product lines to our customers and retailers. In addition to our farm toy product, we’ll also be showing our latest Pokémon toy product and a new product line called Lightseekers done in conjunction with a company called PlayFusion. Lightseekers is a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). If you want to learn more about this, please visit their website at https://www.lightseekers.com/.

February also means that the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville is not far away. We’re doing a couple1:64 tractors that are ready for the show.

For New Holland we’ve produced a T9.600 with SmartTrax tracks and a beautiful paint scheme. You will also see special “chase” versions that add in some chrome elements.



For Case IH we’re offering a special Case IH 620 Steiger in the vintage Steiger green paint scheme. This tractor celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Steiger tractors.



Both of these tractors are a one-time production run and are available while supplies last.

February also means we’re getting prototypes ready for the Toy Farmer to reveal what their tractors will be for the National Farm Toy Show. More to come!

Thanks,
Bill
