There are still weeks before Christmas, but holiday shopping is already on the minds of some.

Rusty Gatenby talked live with Paul Gilbert of Mills Fleet Farm in Blaine about Toyland, a special section of the store for holiday shoppers looking for toys.

Toyland opens to customers Saturday at 7 a.m. and the first 300 people in the door get a free toy "big rig." The store is open until 9 p.m. on Saturdays.

The first Toyland opened in 1957 in Marshfield, Wis., and now, all locations have the toys during the holiday season.
