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!
