Meet Claire. She’s awesome, has excellent taste, strong opinions and researches everything to the nth degree. Pam and I are thrilled to introduce Claire’s voice on Project Nursery and we are looking to welcome additional contributors as we continue to grow and expand…
Little boys love trains. There seems to be an invisible magnetic force that sucks my son Max in when there’s a train set in his site. He could spend most of an afternoon with a train set pushing the trains along the wooden tracks. When he turned 18 months, I decided it was time to put away the baby toys and bring home a train table for the toddler running around my home.
There are several great activity / train tables available. Websites that list a few good options are Trains 4 Tots and Wooden Tracks. My favorite is the “Thomas The Tank Engine” branded train table with storage carts – so cute. If your little boy loves Thomas, he would probably go nuts over this table.
Another great selection of tables exists at Sensational Beginnings. Due to our space constants, living in old Victorian home in San Francisco with small sized rooms, I picked a reduced size train table. This cool one from Kid Kraft comes with a tabletop that can be flipped over with a LEGO compatible surface serves its purpose well and more – not to mention that it takes up less space than other tables.
With that, Max says “Choo choo!”
