A hobby can be many things but at Big Boy Toys and Hobbies we define a hobby as a traditional pastime such as plastic model kits, rockets, radio controlled airplanes, cars, trucks and boats, as well as board games, puzzles and more.
From Big Boy Toys and Hobbies:
Every January is National Hobby Month. During National Hobby Month, our goal is to remind consumers about the joy of the hobbies we support. Our hobbies can bring generations together, give people a sense of accomplishment, and instill a life-long love of learning and creativity.
Hobbies have been a part of American culture for decades, from the earliest model train sets to balsa wood airplanes to slot cars. The Wright brothers used their skills from carving flying toys as boys to build their aircraft. Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, honed his engineering skills as boy working on his model trains.
Today, science, technology, engineering and math skills are vitally important for young people to learn to succeed in today’s economy. With hobbies they can learn problem solving and critical thinking skills while they assemble a rocket or tumble rocks into gemstones.
Big Boy Toys and Hobbies will be hosting events all month long promoting National Hobby Month for the people of Acadiana.
