The best train sets for kids 2010 include what parents (and their children) most love – classic toys that make creativity fun. Interestingly enough this is a market that has not been affected much by technology – the same types of kids train sets that have been popular over the years still are the top sellers and from names in toys that are some of the most loved and trusted in history.
Based on the top 10 train sets for kids this year, here are the top 3 best sellers:
1. Melissa and Doug Wooden Railway Set (for kids 3 years old and up) – This is one of the more elaborate train sets available these days with a total of 130 pieces. For any parents (or otherwise toy shoppers) who are looking for a great train and tracks set for kids that will get plenty of use for years to come, this is probably the best choice on the market. Included in this set are two different types of bridges, a magnetized crane, a roundhouse train shed, trees, traffic signs, workers and tracks that come in both straight and curve designs. There are enough “fixins” in this particular set to allow kids the full use of their imaginations and create practically any setting they like.
2. Melissa and Doug Figure 8 Train Set (for kids 3 years of age and up) – Another train set from Melissa and Doug hits a high point of the “favorites” list for this year. This set is much simpler than the Wooden Railway set (detailed above), but is also “equipped” with a much lower price. If looking for a starter train set for very little ones this is a great choice and parents can always count on the quality that Melissa and Doug provides with all of their children’s toys.
3. Fisher Price GeoTrax On The Go Train Set (for kids ages 2 to 7 years) – Here is the first train set on the list this year to be made from plastic rather than wood. It is a delightfully cute set with a zoo setting, the general theme based on a train at the zoo, the zoo keeper rides the train and takes care of the animals. One feature that is unique with this set (compared to the two above) is that it is portable – the set itself has storage so that it can be taken anywhere kids go quite easily.
The three best train sets for kids 2010 listed above are always great choices when searching for a great gift for young lads but there most definitely are other sets this year that are rated highly and also quite popular, and can be found online for a price that won’t break the budget.
