Just to start the ball (or baubles) rolling in time for Christmas, John Deere has a new festive line-up for 2011.

The popular chocolate Advent calendar from last year has been redesigned, and will be joined for the first time this season by new tractor themed gingerbread and electric Christmas lights, plus green and yellow Christmas tree baubles decorated with the John Deere logo.

The Advent calendar has been redesigned and improved with a snowy tractor scene on the front, and 24 Christmas themed chocolate shapes inside the windows. The 60mm diameter glass baubles feature gold coloured ornamental caps, while the light chain has 20 white filament bulbs inside plastic lamp shapes printed with the new John Deere 8R Series tractor design. The 12cm gingerbread tractors also feature sugar decorations in John Deere’s green and yellow livery.

All these Christmas items can be ordered now, while stocks last, from participating John Deere dealers – look out for the displays at your local dealership, or order online from November at

List prices (including VAT) are: advent calendar £4.16 (€4.88 in Ireland); set of four Christmas baubles £11.72 (€13.75); tractor gingerbread £3.85 (€4.52); and tractor lights £34.68 (€40.66).
