Wooden toys are becoming more and more popular in recent years, and that has a lot to do with with the increase in awareness of the chemicals being used in some plastic toys.  Things like wooden teethers and natural wood rattles are even becoming popular for newborns.  But, the popularity wooden train sets hasn't seemed to have waned for nearly 100 years.

Wooden Train Set History

Many people think that Thomas the train is the original wooden train set, but that would be the wrong assumption.  These retro-modern wooden toys have been going strong since the early 1900's.  1936 to be exact.  And, in 1956 the current train connectors were patented.  That's a long tradition of toddler fun.  Also, in the 50's the current Brio train sets were introduced.  And, it wasn't until the 1990's that the Thomas the train branded wooden train sets were introduced.

  • Tops is that they are hugely fun for tots
  • They encourage imaginative play
  • The Thomas the Train series has also created a base for relational play
  • The combination of tracks and railways is endless
