Train sets have long been a favorite for kids of all ages, sometimes even inspiring life-long hobbyists. But while kids are small, train sets put little ones on the right track for learning.
When toddlers grasp and push trains across the floor, they experience important physical and cognitive benefits. Handling small objects like trains and track pieces helps develop fine motor skills that are essential for everyday tasks. Your toddler can develop better problem-solving skills and foster creativity by navigating obstacles, keeping trains on course, and creating imaginative scenarios.
Start with simple wooden trains that kids can operate, then gradually expand your collection. With more extensive sets with tracks that can be configured in a variety of ways, kids can move from toddlers to preschoolers and beyond. Add in motorized trains, accessories and more. A timeless toy that’s been around for centuries, even a small wooden train can provide hours of fun.
