Classic Wooden Toy Cargo Train
Item # 705
All aboard for some hands-on choo-choo train fun! This four-car wheeled wooden train includes an engine, coal car, box car, and tanker that easily link and unlink with sturdy coupler. Removable cargo boxes fit in the box car and there's a reversible cargo piece so the train can carry coal or gold! The water tank comes apart and fits on the train in different ways, and the box car doors slide open and shut, helping kids three and older to develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Sturdy wooden construction means this train will be rolling through years of creative playtime.

Help the child to identify the function of each train car - what the engine does and what sounds it makes, and what the other three cars are carrying. Be sure to add lots of fun train noises!
Ask the child to identify the colors on each train car.
Help the child count train cars, wheels, and other details until he or she is able to do so independently.
Conduct an experiment to see which combination of engine and cars can roll farthest when pushed: the engine with three, two, or one car attached.
Link the train cars and ask the child to tell you the order (for example: engine, coal car, water tanker, box car). Have the child close his or her eyes while you unhook and scramble the train cars. Ask the child to open his or her eyes and then to re-connect the train car in the original order.
Ask the child to tell a story about the train car he or she is playing with. For example: Where is the water in the tanker car going to be delivered? Or, what is in the cargo box and who put it on the train?
