Local toy show for charity returns in a big way

The local toy fair is taking place in Zurich on April 16th, and that’s really a big reason you’ll want to see it.

Toy Fair is in support of the Canadian Brain Tumor Foundation, which is something the organizers care deeply about.

“I’ve had a brain tumor for 10 years now,” said Brenda Hallman, one of the event’s organizers. “That charity is run by surgeons and neuro-oncologists, but they don’t get paid. The money is strictly for brain tumor research and finding a cure.”

She hopes the money will play a role in finding a cure for the type of brain tumor she has. This year is the second year of the toy fair.

Plus, Hallman says there’s a big feature before you enter the building.

“It has been confirmed that there will be the largest combine ever built by John Deere, the X9 1100.”

She added that there is hope for other farm equipment, but it depends on whether farmers need tractors on Sunday.

“[Attendees can expect] a lot of toys. It’s mostly farming toys, but there are some other vendors to make the show more appealing to other people,” she said.

One supplier works on custom leather and can make anything you want. This includes custom belts, phone holders, leather fly swatters and more.

In addition to collectibles, there are also toys suitable for children to buy and play.

The event will be held at the Zurich Community Center on Sunday 16 April. On-site admission is $5, and children 12 and under are free. Refreshments will be provided.
