What could be better than a classic rocking horse? That’s easy – how about a DIY John Deere rocking tractor, homemade by your very hands?
We know what you’re thinking – there’s no way anyone with just a few tools and a supply of wood could knock something this cool together at home. And that’s what we thought at first too – until we tried it out for ourselves! If you’re the kind of parent that likes to think outside the box when it comes to kids’ toys, this is for you. And if you happen to be a well-wisher looking to give the most amazing gift no child will ever forget … well, you really couldn’t ask for anything cooler than this!
Rocking Tractors, Surprisingly Simple
You really won’t believe how simple it is to create this work of art until you get started – there’s no time like the present! The plan itself is currently up for grabs for just $15, which when you consider the fact that this would sell for hundreds is a pretty sweet deal to say the least! And of course, there’s nothing to say you have to keep it as a lean, mean green-machine – any color or finish you like will look equally amazing!

So much more than a cool toy or ornament, it’s the kind of one-off gift that will set their imagination free and keep them entertained for hours on end. What’s more, it’s durable enough to be held onto as a keepsake for life, or perhaps be passed on for the enjoyment of future generations. Follow the plan to the letter, ass you own custom touches or let the kids go wild with the paints – unique results are always the best!
For the little farmer in your life, this really is just about as good as it gets.
