Gifts For Little Boys 4 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

Do you have a little locomotive lover in your life? If so, we’ve got the perfect gift for them this holiday season – the Touch ‘N’ Go Bullet Train! Watch your little one’s face light up when they activate this small, electric train with just a gentle touch to one of the marked areas on the train’s engine. They can make it speed along tracks or on the floor, bring it to a halting stop, or listen to one of the fun train sounds, like the revving engine or blow of the horn.

Gifts For Little Boys 5 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

The Touch ‘N’ Go Bullet Train comes with 4 connectable train cars and 10 pieces of snap-together track that can be configured in a number of ways. Unlike other toy train sets, the track in this set is soft and bendable allowing your little one to create curves in the track or even bumpy arches for the train to cruise over! The Touch ‘N’ Go Bullet Train is perfect for ages 2+ and we’ve found that both girls and boys love this toy! Not to mention, this isn’t a toy that will break the bank, making it an affordable gift for any kid on your list.

The base also fills with sand for extra stability and safety–you can feel good knowing that it won’t tip over on smaller children.

Kidcraft Bucket Top Construction Train Set from  PishPosh Baby


If your construction-obsessed little dude is underwhelmed with traditional train sets (because they don’t have any construction equipment!), the Kidcraft Bucket Top Construction Train Set from PishPosh Baby will have him putting on his hard hat and saying, “Let’s get to work!” in no time flat!

Gifts For Little Boys 10 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

The Bucket Top Construction Train set is smartly made of wooden tracks that accommodate popular train sets like Thomas & Brio, and comes equipped with wooden construction vehicles, a working crane that can pick up and move various piles of stones and beams, wooden construction workers, cones, trees, and more. There’s even a pint-sized quarry!  From a parent perspective, we love the fact that the entire 61-piece train set fits inside the included storage box (the mountain section of the train track is the lid to the bucket!), and, assembling the tracks is simple enough that you won’t spend hours putting it together.
