John Deere Toy Giveaway TIME'S UP!! Winner to be announced soon!

You guys.

I am so excited.

I received a package the other day of the most exciting toys to come to our home in a very long time. One of the reasons they are so exciting?

They are brand new. Like seriously, just out of production, scheduled for a June/July release date. Just try to find them in a store. Just try to Google them. You will be hard-pressed to find them.

But we have them.

And I have some for you.

The other reason they are so exciting?

Finally, finally someone (my bffs at Learning Curve to be exact) got smart and made
John Deere action figures.

Seriously.

Let me introduce you to the John Deere action figure team.

Meet Connor Biltmor. Connor is the Construction and Demolition Expert. He's strong and powerful, with exciting equipment ready to blast through any situation. His action equipment includes a backpack tool box with opening panels, rocket-firing hammer blaster, and Sledge and Saw Zawl tools.

The next member of our team is Eddie Embers. Eddie is the Fire Expert. Raging forest fires are no match for Eddie--he's ready to save the day! His action equipment includes a hover backpack with spring-loaded jet wings, a water blaster with launching water bombs, and a fire ax. Next up is Forrest Farrell. Forrest is the global Rescue Ranger--and there's no terrain too tough for him! Forrest is always ready to scale a mountain or rappel down a cliff to save the day. His action equipment includes a jump jet backpack with retractable grappling hook, and a hand-held power claw.

The final member of our team is J.D. J.D. is the Technology Expert, and is ready and willing to deal with any land emergency at hand! His action equipment includes a tank backpack, hydro-cannon with launching water missiles, and a launching aerial seeder drone.

No team would be complete without a super awesome vehicle, right? Check out the All-Terrain Team Hybrid Hover-Jet! The Gator Hybrid Hover-Jet is ready for the All-Terrain Team to drive or fly into any situation to defend and rescue! It transforms from a utility Gator into a super-charged flying Hover-Jet with a simple, kid-friendly design.
Can't you just imagine how much a little guy (or a big guy!) would LOVE to play with this set?! Just look at the joy on this face!


If you would like to win the entire set of John Deere All-Terrain Action Figures as well as the John Deere Hover-Jet...keep reading!

Oooh...my boys are drooling as I type! They like to have never let me click on the comment section because they wanted to keep looking at them. We bleed green around here! They love the hover jet the most and of the action figures they really dig the fire fighter! Looks like I am comment number one so I probably won't have a good chance of winning but we are sure hoping!!!! Thanks for the chance!

It's a shame the males in our family are all over 25. I remember a time when my nephew would have loved this. Wait, who am I kidding. They would love this now. Too much fun.

♥ Boomer ♥ said...

Woot! Woot! Grandsons would ♥ any of these -- the green vehicle probably would be best. Think I've told you that their room is in total "John Deere" design. :-)

The Royal Family said...

OH my GOSH! My little gal and BIG guy would LOVE LOVE LOVE these! I love the tractor and Conner the best!

Hmm, my last comment didn't show up.
I foundyour blog by searching for a raspberry cobbler recipe - I will be using your recipe this evening! thank you - it looks great.
Then I came across other posts and fell in love with reading your blog.
This entry is awesome! JD figures are gonna rock! My son would love them! We are in the midst of redecorating the boys' room in JD theme and they would both love these toys, especially my 3 yr old. My fave outside of the tractor of course, would be J.D. as he reminds me of my son anyway.
I will be a permanent reader on your blog now.

Oh wow that IS cool! Ok, since I won last time I guess I won't try to win anymore to give someone else a chance. I may have to buy some of these when they do hit the stores, tho!! BTW, I am making your black bean salsa recipe tomorrow for a bbq!

Kristie said...

These are too cool! I think my husband would probably play with them more than the kids, but I would still LOVE to win! :-)

I think Eddie Embers is my favorite being that my husband is a firefighter :-)

Aunt Julie said...

Can I say ALL of them? If I have to narrow it down, I pick Forrest Farrell, from his look as well as his name. A Global Rescue Ranger? So rad...

So Not Mom-a-licious said...

This is so awesome! I think the action figures are cool, but for my son's sake I would have to say the Hover jet is the coolest. Even though it looks more like a tractor then a jet!

Eddie Embers is my favorite. My sons think at Halloween that you always dress up as a Fireman, as that is what my oldest has been for 4 years! Fire Fighters are a great hero for kids - and good action figures to play with and pretend.
