Does your child love trains? Are you surrounded by the world of Thomas and friends? Or are you a train lover who wants to share this interest with your kids? Are you looking for some train themed gifts and train gift ideas for children?
This post has loads of great train gifts for kids including Thomas the train gifts, train sets for kids and many more train gifts for boys and girls. If you are looking for train gift ideas for young children you will also find train gifts for toddlers in this article.
As a mother and a teacher (of 25 years) I know just how important trains can be to children. Encouraging imaginative play and an early interest in engineering (my husband was a railway engineer) the love of trains can develop from a childhood enjoyment to a lifelong obsession (and even a career)
Bearing all this in mind I have selected my top 15 train gifts for your children. This includes my choice of the best train themed toys and games that your child will absolutely love as well as train books for kids and train story books.
