Would you believe there’s a museum dedicated to farm toys? It’s located in Dyersville, Iowa, very near the Field of Dreams movie site. Who doesn’t love toys?

This museum has just about every kind of farm toy you can imagine, from the old-timey miniature farm animal playsets to larger wagons and tractors that kids (or immature adults) can ride around.

There’s a kids play area and shelf after shelf of farm toys, spanning several decades. I’m a fan of the older toys, which were so boring and plain by today’s standards.

Who knew they made a John Deere Barbie?

The National Farm Toy Museum also has a large gift shop with an extensive selection of toys, books and other memorabilia. For five bucks, why not stop in and check out this quirky attraction?
