Top 3 Train Sets for Kids 2011-2012

Train sets absolutely are a family classic for the Christmas holiday and kids absolutely love playing with them. The Top 3 Train Sets for kids 2011 for this holiday season and also for early 2012 highlight the best train sets according to parents and kids that have them as well as the sets which are rated top in product sales reports.

Deciding on the best set will depend on its usage and age of the children who will be playing with them. Listed below here are 3 of the top ranked sets in the marketplace and I've included the suitable age group for every set:


Imaginarium City Central Train Table:  The Imaginarium City Central Train Table - for children 3-5 years is a perfect set that allows for a lasting set up and/or storage for your child's train and accessories. Included components are a station, train wash, fuel station, tunnel, light-up bridge, an operable crane together with grapple and 3-door roundhouse with working turntable. The built-in sound effects and lights can trigger with any wooden train with magnets like Brio or Thomas & Friends. The table is roughly 49" x 33" and stands 17" high and has two large compartments that will hold train cars and accessories. Table wipes clean using a damp cloth. You will find a total of 100+ pieces on this set including over 23' of track. The batteries required are 6 button cell and 7 AAA which are not contained in this set.


Lionel Polar Express G-Gauge Train Set:  All aboard for a real life re-enactment of the much loved childrens' movie. This Lionel Polar Express G-Gauge Train Set - for children age 4 and above is a larger scale, battery powered train set, that is made particularly for children. The train consists of a Berkshire Steam Locomotive and tender, Passenger Car with opening doors and an Observation Car which has a "disappearing hobo" detail, much like in the movie scene. Authentic train sounds will be heard just like a bell, whistle and an "All Aboard..." alert at the push of the button. Three miniature Polar Express figures also come in the set: conductor, boy and hobo. The remote controller is easy for children to use in making the train move forward or backward. This set is ready to use right out of the box together with the train cars, track and all the appropriate batteries. The whole family's imagination could be empowered using this train set.


Lionel Polar Express O-Gauge Train Set:  Beautiful craftsmanship, type and durability make the Lionel Polar Express O-Gauge Train Set - for kids age 8 or older a favorite for the entire family. The set is easily assembled from the smooth linking together of the cars to putting the track together. The 40" x 60" oval track could be increased in size with extra track pieces purchased individually. The die-cast metal locomotive has an operating headlight, will puff smoke and has a realistic sounding air whistle in the tender. Passenger cars contain interior lighting and silhouettes in the windows. The transformer that powers the train is significant and durable yet kids will simply learn to operate it with a little help. As soon as set up, the train needs to be charged before it can run. What's in the box? The locomotive and four additional train cars, transformer, Santa's Bell, 4 articulated movie characters, bottle of smoke fluid, oval track pieces and guide book.


Whether a child asks for a train set or not, it's the perfect holiday gift which will turn into a favorite throughout the year and also for holidays to come. Any of these picks from the Best Train Sets for children 2011 into 2012 would make any child happily surprised.
