How to choo-choo-choose the best toy train model for you or your child
When choosing the best toy train or toy train set for yourself or your child, age-appropriateness should be one of the first considerations. Depending on the recipient’s interests and skill level, different types of toy trains may be better suited to different ages. Researching toy train sets and reading reviews can help you decide which toy train best suits your needs. At Myer, our stocked range of toy trains include thorough descriptions, age recommendations and reviews to help you compare toy train sets and discover the one that’s right for you.
You should also consider the size and scale of the toy train set. Some sets are extensive (these are typically designed to be displayed permanently), while others are less elaborate and more appropriate to be given to children. If the toy train set is scaled down to include smaller, ornate details, it may best suit adults and collectors. Toy trains that are larger in scale are best suited to children to prevent lost parts and choking hazards.
How do you store a toy train?
When storing your toy train, you’ll need to consider the size of the set and how many pieces and accessories are included; this will help you know what kind of storage container and shelf space is necessary. If possible, choose a storage container made from a sturdy material (and includes a lid). When deciding where to keep your toy train, we recommend a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or heat. It’s always best to label your box too! This will help when you identify your toy train next time you want to take it out of storage.
