Miranda sent us an email: "Can you recommend a nice, sturdy train set for a young child that's two? I would love to find something that is easy for them to work with, but not too plain and boring."
Great question, Miranda. Wooden train sets are a big item in our home and it's no wonder why. They allow children to build and rebuild tracks over and over again, encouraging problem-solving. Plus, they are just so much fun!
For the young child, about one-and-a-half to two, we love BRIO's Darling set. The set comes with wooden tracks, a red bridge, three trains and a sweet horse which can double as a tunnel. Also by BRIO is My First Train Set. This set comes with wooden tracks (compatible with most wooden train systems), four trains, two ramps and a cool tunnel.
Which wooden train sets can you recommend to Miranda? Are there any you think she should avoid?
