It’s a universal truth that children are often obsessed with trains. Whether it’s Thomas on the TV, playing with a wooden set, or simply watching them go past at the level crossing, trains grasp the imagination of kids. That's why we've pulled together a list of the best wooden trains for toddlers.
My little boy, who’s just turned two, is in love with all sorts of trains. He gets so excited when we have to stop for a train to go past, and the train set is permanently erected in our dining room. He often takes Percy to bed with him, and Thomas has to be on telly before we have breakfast.
Currently he has three wooden train sets – one at our house, one at Grandma’s, and one at Grandad’s.
When were wooden toy trains invented?
Wooden toy trains became a staple for children across the world as early as the 1890s. Fast forward to 2022, and you'll find that these toys have been enjoyed from generation to generation, with some family members passing down their favourite tracks. How cute is that?
