National Train Day marks the 143rd anniversary of the creation of the nation’s first transcontinental railroad. On May 10, 1869, in Promontory Summit, Utah, the ‘golden spike’ was driven into the final tie that joined 1,776 miles of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railways, forever transforming the face and character of America.
B. toys and ToyXplosion are celebrating National Train Day by giving away a set of Stackadoos so children can build their own trains! Aren’t they cute?! We love B. toys for their creativity, the colors they use in their toys and their encouragement of pretend play. They just seem to ‘get’ what children want to play with and what parents are looking for when it comes to the toys that fill their homes. And oh how they can fill our homes right?
