My boys love everything with wheels, which lately has meant trains!  Tadpole enjoys putting things into lines, which is exactly what trains are all about.  He especially likes the magnetic cars that allow him to make really long snakes to drive through my kitchen.  If you have a train-loving son or grandson (or daughter/granddaughter), I'm sure you'll find something for him on this list.

These first two toys are classics.  Every child should have a hat to wear while he runs through the house blowing the train whistle.  If you get one set for every kid, it'll be like living in a train yard!

This is the track set that we own, because it's interchangeable with a bunch of other brands.  It would be great on a train table or or just on the floor.  Builder toys like this allow kids to plan, problem solve, and enjoy the fruits of their labor.  And, imagine how large of a track you could build if you had more than one box of these?

These are Tadpole's favorite trains, because they magnetize together and can be pulled along as a big snake.  A great companion to this train is the letter cars, either as the full alphabet or to spell out a child's name.

Both of my boys have their eyes on this remote control train.  They like to watch Thomas on TV occasionally, and recognized the blue engine instantly.  This would be our first remote control vehicle, but I'm sure it won't be our last.

Skimmer carries a tiny train engine with him everywhere he goes, which means that I frequently have one of these mini cars in my pockets.  Both boys love the minis, and would just die for a pile of tiny trains like these.

Another classic children's toy is a train table.  There are many different designs and sizes available, so finding one that fits your family is possible.  Ones with built in storage is a good idea for keeping all the train stuff together.

This was the first train that we owned.  We love that Green Toys is made from recycled milk jugs and is fully recyclable.  We've also been impressed how well the coloring has lasted, even after the toys have been out of the sun.  This train is more challenging than the magnets, because it has a hook and eye set up.  It's large enough for hauling lots of other toys.

Duplos are a classic toy and have made my list of Tough Toys for Tough Kids two years in a row.  The train sets are very fun, and allow for a lot more play expansion.  Whether the tracks runs through the zoo or the city, the Duplo train is a great addition to your collection.

I couldn't have Duplos without Legos.  I thought this Christmas train and Santa village was very cute and would be adorable on a mantel.  Of course, it would also make a great birthday or Christmas gift, or given piece by piece as part of a holiday countdown.

I had no idea when I started looking for the Polar Express book that there was so many affiliated products.  I just kept adding them, because they helped fill out the picture.  I think the bell ornament would be a neat Christmas Eve gift or a good souvenir for a wintery train ride or movie night.  The family movie night fun could continue with the matching game or a book reading.  And, how amazing would it be to have the official Polar Express train circling your tree?


I hope you enjoyed this train-themed gift guide!  Come back again tomorrow for another installment.
