Put a Melissa & Doug Wooden Train in front of them and watch what happens. Kids roll into inspiring creative play and logical thinking!
Children guide colorful engines, coal cars, freight cars, and caboose around great lengths of curves & straight track, whizzing by workers, trees and traffic signs. They steer engines in to fill the expansive roundhouse engine shed. Concentrating intently, they lift and carry railroad cars and freight with magnetic tipped cranes. Watch closely and you'll see decision-making in action as they change an engine's course at switch tracks and pass boxcars at T-junctions. Eyes light up as they rise above the lower train track and then journey across a suspension bridge or trestle bridge. Finished?...no, it's time to spin the turntable and send another colorful train engine cruising down the track.
Well-designed action pieces take your child's imagination great distances. This extensive railway set will absolutely captivate young minds and keep little engineers occupied for hours! (See below for a complete list of included pieces.)

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 3 years of age.
We just build tracks flat on the ground. The towers fall very easily and my 2 and 4 year olds knock it down within seconds of trying to play. They do great with non elevated tracks and play for quite a lot of time making the track into different shapes and paths. They like the road signs as well.
Love these trains!

My daughter got interested in trains while visiting her 6yo cousin; she was only 20 mos at the time, and couldn't really put the trains together herself, but she loved moving them around the tracks. Now, at 2, she has her own set and adores them. Her cousin's set was made up of many different brands, including M&D and the much more expensive wooden "Thomas." I have to say, aside from the faces on the Thomas trains, I saw no difference in quality. M&D is the best value for the money. If my daughter gets into the Thomas characters later on, I may buy her the trains, but I'll always stick with M&D for track. I wish Fat Brain sold the "filler" tracks -- those odd little pieces like male/male and female/female connectors that help to make a large set work more seamlessly. Other than that, this set will get your child started with everything they need for hours/days/months/years of conductor fun!
Wooden Melissa & Doug railway set

Our local library has a Melissa & Doug railroad train track set that my 19 month son loves to play with each week when we visit the library. So my husband and I decided that would make the perfect Christmas gift for him. I was confident getting a Melissa & Doug product because we have others and liked the quality of them. I was not disappointed in the quality of the train set. There are lots of different pieces and it comes with 4 different photos of configurations however you can certainly make your own up too. I had too because my son kept knocking over the track when it was in a configuration that was lifted up with support blocks under it - so his set is all at ground level. Which speaking of the train tracks when they are set up to be up hill or lifted up - the support blocks are not very sturdy at all and easily tip over. I think Melissa & Doug need to make sturdier or bigger/wider support blocks or have a way to clip the track onto them so the whole thing doesnt easily fall over and pieces fall apart when tipped over. That is my only complaint.
My girls, 2 and 4, have played with it for hours, and my husband and I even enjoy building the tracks. Only drawback is that the supports are a little difficult for the girls to assemble and maintain. (They knock them over when pushing the trains), but it's a great set...especially since we have no room or need for one of those bulky train tables.
