We Play: Trains

Hey, girls can play trains, too! 

I try to rotate E's toys regularly so that she doesn't have too much out at once.  I had her train set put away for quite a while.  I even had picked up some more track and extra pieces and had never put them out.  Today, we pulled out everything train we had and set up a huge city!


E had fun figuring out how the magnets worked to hook up the trains, then running them over and under the bridges.
not sure why this picture is showing up sideways . . . hmmm . . . .anyways . . . .

Usually, in our house at least, the simpler toys are the best!  No batteries, noise, or flashing lights.  Just some imaginations and good old "chugga chugga choo choo!" noises.  Happy playing!

That's looks great! So much to set up, figure out, play with and just enjoy. We went shopping for my nephew's 2nd b'day today and being a mummy of two girls, I felt a little bamboozled by all the train stuff.

The simple toys, or even non-toys, are always the things that they keep going back for, aren't they? :)

And magnets are so much fun! We spent a good 20 minutes one day just playing with the magnets on our toy train to, turning them over and over to connect and repel. Funny how something so simple can amuse and interest for so long ...

Neat post. We love trains here too, both the wooden variety and the motorized ones.
Thanks for sharing,
