My 4 year old son loves trains. Passionately. He inherited all of his big brother’s trains and tracks. But over the years, many tracks and trains have gone missing — so our boy didn’t really have a complete set to drive his trains on. So, you can just imagine the total excitement when we were sent the Childcraft Express Train Set from School Specialty Store ($79).
We opened the box and pulled out the track directions. My 9 year old did a great job of setting up the track.
There were straight and curved tracks, plus bridges, 4-car express train, 4-car circus train, track, bridges/overpasses, signs, trees and animals.
Even though we have loads of trains floating around our home, my kids were still thrilled to see more trains. The circus animals that fit into the trains were a huge hit.
We loved the little traffic signals.
We had the set together really quickly.
And my head engineer was pretty proud that he made this happen (I called out the track name and he put it together).
My 4 year old son, 6 1/2 year old daughter, and 9 year old son were all intrigued with the train set.
They keep coming back to our den to play with the set. Which is great, unless I’m trying to get them ready for school. I love the creativity I see (they make up stories as they drive the trains).
The set contains everything children need to create a fun and detailed train ride.
- An exclusive 4-car express train and a 4-car circus train, track, bridges/overpasses, signs, trees and animals.
- Non-toxic, durable wood construction.
- For Ages 3+. 100 Pieces Classroom tested and ready for home or school. A must-have for early childhood. Specially designed for young children From Childcraft, a leader in early childhood products for over 65 Years
- This train set is non-toxic and made of durable wood. For Ages 3 and up.
- Comes with 100 pieces in the set.
Thank you to the School Specialty Store for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
I like this train set, I think my kids will love this set. 🙂 They are a huge fan of trains.
I love wooden toys! That’s a great set. We have a similar one, but it doesn’t have all the extras, like the animals, signs, and trees. This would be fun to put together under the Christmas tree.

We inherited a similar set years ago and it has really stood the test of time. I never realized it was so affordable. I will keep it in mind because it would make a great Christmas gift for a nephew.
I wish I had little ones! I plan on sharing with my friends with young children.
Looks right up my son’s alley! He loves to play with trains!
omg these are adorable– tiny engineers!
