Since the China recalls began, Whittle Shortline Railroad's two-year-old toy, The Little Engine That Could, has become the biggest seller for the company, accounting for 40% of sales, according to owner Mike Whitworth. In second place: the Amtrak train, at $49.99. To meet customer demand for products made in the States, Whitworth has rolled out new offerings, such as the U.S. Postal Service Truck. His company projects a 300% increase in sales of its domestically-made playthings this year. "Every day sales just keep getting bigger and bigger," says Whitworth. "It's going to be a good year for us."
