A farmer from Atlantic, Virginia, has used John Deere tractors to harvest his crops, but the man has now expanded his interest to the toy models of the farm equipment, according to DelmarvaNow.com.
The news source reported that Wayne Revell lost count of the exact number of toy tractors he has in his collection, something that is growing despite pleas from his wife to consolidate and organize the ones that he already has.
"I was thinking we have close to 200 of the big ones and 600 of the small ones," Revell told the news source. Cheryl, his wife, still calls the room the den, but he calls it "the toy room"- due to the fact it is filled top to bottom with toy tractors and other farming memorabilia.
DelmarvaNow.com reported that Revell has even constructed a way of transporting the toy tractors, as he brings the collection to the annual Farm Day sponsored by the Virginia Cooperative Extension.
The Farm Day event is a way for the local children to learn about the agricultural industry, and features a staff of more than 50 volunteers to help the kids understand more about the equipment involved in farming, according to the event's website.
