"How did you come up with the name?"

“How did you come up with the name ‘Pufferbellies’?” ranks right up there as one of the top questions we get asked at the store (along with, as we get ready to wrap a gift, “are you going to take the price tag off?” For the record, yes, we always take the price tags off).

So, here you go! It’s from a children’s song. Remember it?

Down by the station
Early in the morning
See the little pufferbellies
All in a row.
See the station master
Pull the little handle
Puff! Puff! Toot! Toot!
Off they go.

Apparently there’s a version from the 50’s or something with all manner of additional lyrics. I’ll see if I can find it.
