If your child has shown an interest in trains, or if you love trains and you think your little one will too, a train table set is an excellent investment.
We offer a great line-up below of the very best train table sets for toddlers, complete with everything you need to know to buy the set that’s right for your child.
Let’s be honest—train sets are one of the coolest toys around. They give our kids lots of material for pretend play, they teach them some very beginner concepts of engineering (they have to lay the tracks, don’t they?), they offer countless opportunities in terms of language learning, and they help develop coordination, fine motor skills, dexterity, creativity and hand-eye coordination. What’s not to love?
What's also great about train table sets is that they're going to be around for a long time; at least, that's the idea. You want to invest in something well-made and durable, so your little one can play with it for years to come. And it's also something that will grow over time, so you can surprise your kiddo with a bridge, an extra track, a mountain, a hospital—all kinds of accessories.
Several of our suggestions below come with drawers that fit right under the table which, you’ll agree, is great for storage and clean up, and others come with tables that are totally versatile: flip them over you have a regular table that your toddler can use for just about anything!
Other things that are worth considering when picking a train table set are how much space you have for the table, whether you want a plastic or a wooden train set, and the complexity of the set.
With that in mind, check out some of our favorite train table sets for toddlers below:
