Could the Big Wheel Become the Symbol of Reshoring?

I had a Big Wheel. I remember it well. It was pretty fun to ride and race in the neighborhood.

There hasn't been a Big Wheel made in the US for more than 10 years. Now, it's back! Kids Only is the company set to manufacture them again.

Even better, it's going to be made in the USA. A plant in Michigan used to make automotive components will gain a new purpose.

It may not be the highest tech or most complex product to manufacture, but it's return to US manufacturing is bound to be a hit.

Any one, be it politician or parent, won't soon forget this 40-year American institution being reshored. I think the Big Wheel could become America's greatest symbol for the rebirth of manufacturing.

Here's the CNN story: Big Wheels Are Back
