Thomas and Friends - Water Tower Figure 8 Train Set
I know a 2 year old (and you know them too - running from activity to activity like a blender with the top off) who will actually sit and play with this exact set for at least half an hour. Granted, he LOVES trains. And he reads and watches Thomas The Tanks Engine books and shows. Still though, chances are your little boy (or girl) either likes or will like trains. When they do, get them this set. Simple, safe wooden pieces painted with lead free paints. No batteries, no noise. Just the sound of your child having fun.
I've picked out a nice set here, but anything from Brio is bound to please. They're a storied, old European company specializing in wooden toys - particularly train sets. You can buy a whole kit, individual track, different trains... I've picked out a nice set here, but anything from Brio is bound to please. They're a storied, old European company specializing in wooden toys - particularly train sets. You can buy a whole kit, individual track, different trains, bridges and tunnels - the works. And you can rest assured that you're getting the highest quality wooden train toys available. I grew up with Brio sets. Every child's imagination will keep them busy for quite some time - rearranging tracks, building whole stations or creating 'ramps of death' (my specialty) - either way they'll love it. NOTE for Moms and Dads! Thanks to the old-fashioned simplicity of wooden train tracks, Brio sets will ALSO work with Thomas, Maxim and other sets. So if you find better prices or want more options, characters or electric railroad crossing gates, feel free to shop around.
