Wild Pines Train Set
The Wild Pines Train Set by Tender Leaf Toys
This 30 piece wooden toy train set with accessories allows for creative layouts and endless storytelling. We love the great outdoors and we want to encourage our children to love it too! This set teaches to respect the world and to keep it lovely and green.
The wonderful character of all the different parts make this train set truly charming and it provides hours of fun and learning through play for a little one. A tree nursery shows trees at different stages of growth, and the track part with 3 big firs will block the track unless they are rotated out of the way, making this train set educational as well as fully functional and fun.
Pick up logs and timber magnetically with the rotating loader vehicle and load one of the back carriages, but beware of the bear fishing in the lake for fish!

Trains and schemas
On the face of it, a train set is boring. Round and round, never deviating: the route is laid out in advance. So why are children of a certain age so mesmerised by them? The answer is schemas. Schemas are the mental models children have for various concepts like up, down, over, under and through. These ideas take many years to fully understand and the train set is the perfect way to do it.
A train table
What can you do with a train table? Run your trains around it, of course. But it can also be the setting for small world play, arts and crafts.
Better yet, combine all of the above by making junk model scenery for your railway small world.
