This list will open up your child's imagination. Every year for the past twenty years I would purchase some type of train from Thomas the train to Lionel's train sets for my son each Christmas I loved watching his little eyes light up. He would always say thank you mom this what I always wanted. It was so wonderful watching my son grow as a conductor playing wit his choo choo trains. He now collects trains and can pass it down to his baby boy and I can not wait to hear my grand son say thank you daddy this what I always wanted. Let be honest what little boy or girl could ever resist a train.
