If you are like us, you have big huge Thomas the Train fans in your house! From awesome motorized sets that allow for some super fun challenges (and a few crashes, ha!), to fold us sets you can carry to a friends house and even good old fashioned wooden tracks and table.
Benefits of Train Play
In my house, the kids never stop moving! They require something to do, touch, move and play with all the time and our Thomas the Train sets help keep Charlotte and Phoenyx engaged alone and with one another. I also love that train play is fun for adults as well! I find myself often sitting there adjusting tracks and running trains in different directions along side the kids. While trains are not necessarily a high tech toy, its absolutely one of the more fun and engaging toys.
Playing with train tracks and trains is a real brain workout! You can work on tracks and engineering your layout, combine old and new sets to create new worlds, and solve logical problems like which way a track lays, adjusting the direction of the train and more! In addition Thomas’ bright colors lends a lot of reorganization tools for younger kids like P learning colors and counting.
If you have a big train set up or a train set up, you already know there is a ton of movement involved. From going to one track from the other, stepping over and under and even moving the trains around, you have to balance the train on the tracks and move yourself while playing.
We meet more kids at the Thomas set at the book store than any other place! Phoenyx started his very first “time to share” moment at a train table!
