Wooden Toy Trains by Community Playthings

They are still a popular gift choice for children and often a collectible among adults. It's nearly impossible to own just one wooden toy train; many people choose to build upon their cherished toy to create their own toy train system. While the wooden toy train is a popular display at Christmas, some people have whole rooms or sections of their house dedicated to displaying their wooden toy trains.

Toy trains are something the family can build on.
