When I was a boy I remember waking up Christmas morning to discover our family Christmas Tree was surrounded by a model train puffing smoke and tooting its whistle. My parents tended to spoil me with lots of nice gifts but it’s that model train for under the Christmas tree I remember with the fondest memories.
Christmas train sets are a great way for kids to learn about one of the most efficient means of transportation ever invented that’s spanned over a 150 years of service. Modern trains are great but it’s the vintage 19th century trains that seem to capture the imagination the most.
Model train sets for kids are much less expensive than they were decades ago when I was a kid. Not only that but their safer and easier to set up around the Christmas tree because the're battery powered. So, there’s no need to run extension cords for someone to trip over and can be a voltage and fire hazard.
The train sets I picked out for around the Christmas tree have lots of detail to make them more interesting. There easy to put together so Dad won’t have to stay up late. And these kid’s model train sets have enough track to go around the tree and additional track can be purchased optionally.
