Give a Lego Cargo Train Set for Years of Active Play

Updated on May 22, 2013

Kids Get In Action With Lego Cargo Train Set

Ever since my mom flagged down an old train, back in the 1940s, to catch a ride for our little family to go to the nearest big city, I've been attracted to trains.

The toy trains in my family belonged to my brothers, each having his own set of Lionel engine and attached cars, but I got to play with them too. I loved the look, the little metal parts, the parts that moved and opened, the steam coming from the engine - yes, it was a long time ago.

I understand why even in today's world of high tech trains, they still hold fascination for modern kids. This jam-packed remote-control train set keeps kids engaged in creative active play for hours each day.

Includes multiple play stations so each child can play a leadership role. Battery or kid operated, with a remote control.

Colorful pieces actually move and open and lift! Great way to play with the kids, and since everything has a place in the set it's easy to keep parts together.

Be the engineer, be the truck driver, be the yard worker, be the car driver, be the hoist operator, be the consultant or traffic overseer. Compact fun that grows with the kids.

Fun for children to manipulate the semi-truck that carries the gas tank. Lots of lessons can accompany the toy for years of play and learning.
