Remembering a very cool thing about Spring Valley, Minnesota and my mooing Fisher Price barn.
I want to share something I learned from Mary Jo Dathe at the Spring Valley Historical Society during my last visit. She pointed out something that I never realized. Like many people in my generation, I had a Fisher Price barn. It has a sound effect of a cow mooing when the door opens and closes. Here’s mine outside on the farm. I loved it.
Anyway, what Mary Jo pointed out was that the barn has a poster on the inside for Spring Valley Feed.
They like to think that it must be Spring Valley, Minnesota. Now there are also other towns named Spring Valley in other states, like Illinois, New York, and California. How great to have another reason to love my Fisher Price barn.
UPDATED May 6 2016: I added one sentence, broke a paragraph, and added my current signature block.
