I can remember when I was a little girl that we had a pool table in the basement. But you couldn’t play pool on it because my dad had his model train set all over it. He loved that train set. I had forgotten about that train set till just now. Funny how memories come and go.
Train sets have been around forever and kids of all ages still love them. There are train sets made just for toddlers, the pieces are big so their don’t choke on them, and then there are train sets for older kids with lots of pieces. Depending on where you kids are is what you would want to look at. You will notice that some come with tables for them to set on, while others don’t. So be aware of that. Let’s take a look at a few now.

This is a colorful, real-world environment, the Ride Around Town Train comes with a large landscape board setting. It is a highly detailed board which features lakes, bridges, pastures, and an airport runway. There’s even an area to place a plastic mounting setting with a moveable crane and working winch.
The small wooden track pieces fit together with simple tongue-and-groove connections, allowing for easy, custom assembly. Support beams and bridges make it possible to arrange the track in a raised, crisscrossing configuration for multi-level fun.
