A Wooden Train Set is Useful for Playing and Learning

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

A wooden train set is an adaptable toy that can start as a small set and be built up over time to become much more substantial system. Wooden train sets also have great play value because of their long-term usage as a child grows. They are also useful as educational toys and are particularly good for developing gross and fine motor skills as well as the ability to communicate.

Children love to play and a wooden train set is the perfect toy to bring them together. Whilst playing with a railway set children can explore new roles, for example, one child might be the driver of the train whilst another can be the station master controlling the flow of trains to and from the platforms. Another child might be in charge of making announcements or be the driver of a different train. There are any number of roles that can be thought up and introduced and is very much up to a child’s imagination to create them.

There are a number of factors that makes a wooden train set so much more appropriate for toddlers and pre-school children over an electric train set for instance. Firstly they tend to be non-motorised, this means that there is nothing mechanical to break, no involvement of electricity and no batteries are required. Secondly the material they are mostly made out of, wood, which is very forgiving, robust and repairable. Connecting the pieces of wooden train track is easy so the creation of new track layout is achievable after a little practice. The wooden track and accessories are also safe to play with, there are no sharp edges or dangerous parts that can break off and become choking hazards. However, if the track does become damaged through overzealous play then it is often the case that a simple repair can be carried out with a little bit of time and some wood glue. Thirdly compatibility, virtually all of the wooden train set manufacturers use the same templates to cut the profiles of the track piece joins and track gauge. Brio, Plan Toys, BigJigs and the like all utilise very similar patterns. What this means is that you can buy a new wooden train set then acquire an old railway set of say twenty years age and, when it comes to placing them together, the two will combine and fit almost seamlessly.

Although invented as a commercial toy over seventy years ago the humble wooden railway set still captivates young children (and some adults) today. With an increase in the awareness and desire to purchase more ecologically sound toys for children. The wooden and sustainable train set is probably set to entertain children for another seventy years as they learn and play.

I write about toys like a wooden train set and other play things.
