Why We Like It: This wooden Melissa and Doug stacking train combines block play with a toddler’s innate love of things that roll. That’s a win-win in toddler world! The solid wood construction makes it sturdy enough to withstand pretty much anything your kids throw at it. This versatile toy allows kids to build, stack, and roll – all actions that help build developmental skills. The stacking train encourages development of color, shape & size recognition, visual-spatial acuity, motor skills, problem solving, creativity and imagination.

Plus the brightly colored wooden blocks are visually appealing and, let’s face it, what toddler doesn’t love trains?

What You Should Know: Holes in the multi-shaped blocks allow kids to stack them in a number of ways. The train cars can also be linked together, or played with individually, giving you even more options. The blocks are designed to be easy for little fingers to grasp. Once the train is complete, your child (or should we say engineer?) can take it out for a spin. Then they can take it apart, and start all over again. The classically designed and well crafted Melissa & Doug Stacking Train is sure to be a toddler favorite.
