Ready to make your train lover happy? The KidKraft Farm Train Set might be just what you are looking for the holidays this year! My sons both love trains. We can see and hear the train from our house, and they are fascinated, but they don’t care whether it’s Thomas or Chuggington or anyone else, as long as it’s a choo choo train! The Farm Train Set is perfect, being durable, affordable, and entertaining for multiple ages.
This set is made of wooden track pieces, small figures and buildings, and train cars – a total of 75 pieces to keep your little ones busy. Kids decide they love Thomas? The KidKraft track is compatible with Thomas & Friends and Brio wooden train sets, too! Our oldest has endless fun with the recognizable landmarks, such as a waterfall, barn, pond, windmill and various animals he identifies for us. None of these pieces are attached to the track, so if your little one is not ready for small pieces yet, you can simply put those away and bring them out as the children grow and are ready for new adventures.
The first time we saw a set like this was at our Toys R Us store, all set up on an activity table with trains and accessories galore. We let our oldest son get down and play with it, and his first tantrum and attempt to run off was when we told him it was time to go. I know, that doesn’t sound like a good thing, and he didn’t get to take any of it home that day. But it did show us that he was incredibly interested in the wooden train sets, since it was the first thing he was so passionate about.
The excitement was even stronger when he finally had his own set at home, and he loves knowing that once in a while, if he is good and helps Mommy and Daddy, he can add to his set with a small and inexpensive train car addition – compatible trains are sold at almost any major retailer! It’s a great way to save money but also teach him about earning rewards and making careful selections.
For a wooden train set, it’s hard to beat the quality and price of the KidKraft line. A gift like this will last your little conductor for years to come, and could be just the start of a fun and educational collection!
