Wooden train sets are great for any curious child. Children can build train sets from scratch and then role play with the various characters. Children have to use problem solving skills to build their set and will act out real world situations with the pieces. its fun and enjoyable for kids and parents alike. This Train Set includes 40 pieces of track, 8 vehicles, 10 people/signs, 22 trees and houses, and of course the table. train sets use single piece construction train track. Many of our competitors use pegs for all of their track as the connecting piece. We use it on only a few select custom pieces. But our standard track pieces are all single pieces. Single piece construction track also results in a snug fit which ensures trains do not hop off the track. train set and tracks are compatible with other popular wooden railway systems like Thomas the tank engine sets as well as Brio train sets. Feel free to mix and match between the two sets to arrive at grand scale train cities.
