Custom Farm Toys – Ev Weber

Ev Weber crafted custom farm toys that were precisely designed and so exact that toy manufacturers used his models to create new products.

Using clear plastic to build some models, the interior working parts could be seen.  He set up large displays of different, clear plastic toys at toy shows with a Do not Touch, Not for Sale sign.

Quoting from “The National Farm Toy Museum,” he was called the Builder with “The Golden Hands” and The Michelangelo of Model Crafting”.

Ev and Myra Weber with help from their family built farm displays that almost seemed to come alive.

He passed away the summer of 2010 and we will all miss him.  One toy dealer said, “It’s the end of an era”.
