How do we finish off 2017? Well here at Windy Hill Farm Toys we've had an awesome year and wanted to offer something new to our customers. So here we are, our first ever blog post. Be on the look out for more blogs being released throughout the year featuring new products, toys shows, collections purchased, and farm toys in general.

To round out our year we thought we would do a count down of our top 10 toys with our customers for 2017.


10. 1/16 Gehl 700 Chopper - These were released in October this year by SpecCast. Only 500 units were made of this version of the choppers making it a limited edition. The chopper featured interchangeable corn and hay heads as well as a moveable spout. The high detail and exclusiveness of this piece made it a huge hit with our customers. We sold out of these just one month after receiving them. Units can be found at toy shows across the country fetching prices of upwards of $225-$250.


9. 1/64 Unverferth Seed Pro 410 XL Bulk Box Tender - Another fantastic detailed product by SpecCast. The bulk box tender has been in the SpecCast line for over a year now, but customers still can’t get enough of it. This unit would be used to carry bulk seed to the field to fill the planter. It features an auger that pivots for loading and unloading and seed boxes are removable. We’ve seen lots of these on farm displays at shows and online. With a price of just $28, this items is often purchased by both large and small collectors.


8. 1/64 Kuhn VT 156 Vertical Maxx TMR Mixer - This mixer is produced by 1st Productions. It has fantastic detail which makes it especially popular with our display enthusiasts. We have so many customers who rave over the quality of these products.


7. 1/64 MODEL 42 BIN - This bin is manufactured by Standi Products. Kids and collectors all love these bins because of their versatility. Bins can be made taller by adding extension rings. Out of the multiple bin sizes that we carry, the 42 bin is the most popular due to its size. A cool feature that Standi provides for their products is to put the information of what a real bin this size would be on a farm including measurements and bushel capacity.


6. 1/64 Steiger 620 60th Anniversary - Produced by Ertl this tractor has graphics to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Steiger and Farm Show paw print on cab roof. Detail is crucial for any collector and this piece doesn’t disappoint.


5. 1/16 John Deere 4320 with ROPS Precision Elite #5 - There is no doubt about it that this awesomely detailed piece would make our list. It seemed like each time we got these tractors in stock, they would immediately go back out the door. Manufactured by Tomy’s Ertl line, this tractor features removable side panels, right side console with pivoting hydraulic levers, pivoting gear shift lever, PTO lever, throttle lever, oscillating front axle and a three-point hitch that raises and lowers. Fender and dash lights even illuminate to add a realistic feel.


4. 1/64 Husky 27500L Tri-Axle Liquid Spreader - This product is manufactured by Die Cast Promotions. We’ve seen lots of collectors purchase these products, but a slew of them featured on farm displays across the country. The spreader can be used with the Husky pipe cart as well as the lagoon pump for liquid manure removal.


3. 1/16 Case International Big Farm Corn Head and Header Cart - The Big Farm line by Tomy is a huge hit with any kid and collectors too. This corn head attaches to the Case International 8240 combine. Unlike the John Deere version of this product, this set does not include a truck, only the header cart. With a price of just $32.49, it is an affordable addition to any toy farm.


2. 1/64 Ford L9000 Grain Truck - Produced by Top Shelf these trucks were first released at the National Farm Toy Show in 2016 in three colors white, red and blue. They sold out very quickly and were re-released in this summer, featuring a new black model as well. Since nothing quite like this has been released before it has been popular with so many of our customers.


1. 1/64 John Deere 9570RX Scraper Special with Semi and Lowboy Trailer - These have been a hit from the moment they were released. At $29.99 this product became affordable to desirable to a multitude of our customers. This set is popular for kid play, farm displays and look great on a shelf. Really you can’t go wrong.
