That’s our toy train table above, set up in my daughter’s room. She loves it, and expanding it has been our go-to gift for her lately. Birthday, Christmas, learning to use the potty… all train-centric occasions. And if I’m being honest, I love rearranging the track almost as much as she and her little brother love playing with it.
Most of our engines and accessories are from Thomas the Tank Engine, but did you hear that the license for the entire line has been sold to Mattel? No word on what will change and what will stay the same, but in the meantime, here are the best options for extending your train table (whether officially Thomas branded or otherwise).
