Kernel Shucks from John Deere Toys is a Great Workout for Jax’s Developing Motor Skills! #Review and #Giveaway @JohnDeere #JohnDeere


Jax is growing like a weed and I’m continually amazed by all of the things that he can do. I think being a third child he definitely does everything earlier than my first two. He wants to do everything that big brother and big sister do, even when he can’t.

I would definitely call our family a little bit country! We love all things in the great outdoors and John Deer is a name I grew up knowing. I didn’t know until recently, however, that they make such a wide variety of toys! We do have a classic John Deere tractor that was Reed’s from when he was little that has stood the test of time. Kernel Shucks just takes it to a whole new level though!


The concept reminds me a bit of Mr Potato Head in that you can build from his 17 included parts to make him whatever you want him to be! Jax was excited the second he saw the box! We opened it and took everything out and he immediately somehow knew that he was supposed to build something from it.


The funny thing about this age is that he likes taking things apart as much as he likes putting them together. That’s why this is the perfect toy for him! It’s designed to be taken apart and put together and has all kinds of fun pieces to mix it up each time and make him a little bit differently.


This toy does say 18m+ on it and Jax is just 16 months. I do play with it with him but I think after using several times that the age recommendation is probably based more on what their motor skills are capable of doing than safety. However, whenever there are parts to something I do supervise his play just to make sure. And maybe a little because I want to play too!

John Deere is a name that is known, trusted and beloved in America. Kernel Shucks is a fun little guy that little ones are sure to adore and a tribute to the name we all love!
