JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The 28th annual Farm Toy Show started at the Hilton Garden Inn in Jonesboro Friday afternoon and continued through the weekend. 

Plenty of farm toys were on display and available for purchase Saturday. 

It is an event many collectors enjoy each year, and one man said the show offers something for the whole family. 

Danny Angotti said he has been coming to the show for over 20 years, and it can be a learning experience for the younger generation. 

"A lot of the younger kids that we saw last night, are probably with their grandparents who still farm, their parents may not farm, but they still have the ties to the farm," Angotti said. 

The expo offers a wide selection of farm and agriculture toys that all ages can collect and enjoy.

The organizers of the show come to Jonesboro every year from Texas to put on the event.

Their goal, to increase interest in the hobby in this region.

“It’s just a hobby that a lot of people in this area enjoy,” organizer Roger Gloe said. “And some of the younger kids now are picking up the hobby that their parents collected toys and now they’re adding to the toys. This year we’ve brought our grandson with us to help with the show, so actually, this is a third generation show for us.”
