Christmas Gift Guide young Railway-Fans (ages 1.5-3)

We usually write about the digitalization of railway infrastructure, but today we are presenting you with a Christmas gift guide for toddlers. As the first Advent has passed, we’re starting to feel the Christmas spirit around the office. Without further ado, great things are in store for those who…love rail! Surprise any young railway enthusiast you know with the latest must haves from our jolly Christmas Gift guide compilation for young railway-fans, aged 1.5 to 3.

Let creativity come to play and swap the traditional Christmas-gift themes with these exciting ideas, guaranteed to wow modern train fans of all ages from 1.5 to 3 years:    

Duplo Train Sets for the youngest

For the youngest amongst us, but all-the-same in awe of moving train models, the Duplo Steam Train set will be the perfect gift. This series’ parts are ideally sized for any small child’s hands, all the while developing their fine motor skills and keeping safe from being ingested. It is another oldie, so it’s safe to say that it will last for generations. A lot of toddlers and preschoolers already have quite some hand-me-down Duplo, so the steam train is a great extension to the building blocks. Another great Duplo option is the Duplo number train, which doesn’t come with tracks, but is fun to build and roam around with for toddlers as young as 1.5 years.

Eco-friendly, wooden Brio Train Sets

This oldie but goodie is recommended as a gift for any age group. In particular, the extensive range of additional parts and expansion pieces make the Brio train sets almost an unbeatable favorite for every true railway fan. Hours of fun building the track network and scenery are guaranteed with an appropriately equipped set. Pssst… my 3-year-old will find this train under the Christmas tree this year, but in my experience, his dad’s eyes will also light up seeing it! If you are just starting out, the Brio classic set or the Brio street and track deluxe sets are a great place to start, depending on your budget. The fun thing with Brio is that you can combine your toddler’s or kids’ interest with the various sets offered – ranging from the Brio rainbow set and the Brio Mickey Mouse set to the Brio firemen sets and the Brio police set.

Playmobil‘s Railway Set

This wonderful Playmobil train set is accompanied by various accessories that will keep your toddler entertained. This gift will have any train devotee’s hearts racing as the small-sized and colorful, easy-to-pack diverse sets have proven perfect for both playing at home and anywhere while on vacation, because they are sturdy and easy to clean and light enough to carry around wherever you go – especially if you’re planning to go on a longer train ride.

We are already plotting out the railway or train fans Christmas gift guide for older children, so watch out for the second part of our gift guide. Wishing everyone very happy holidays and a spectacularly imaginative play time to all our train fans!
