Classic toys that have been around since the 1840s, model train sets are one of the best-loved toys out there. Not only are they neat all year round, but they’re also perfect for the holiday season. For some reason or another, train sets and the holidays just go hand in hand. When I was a child, my family had a train set that had been handed down through the generations. Whenever we took it out, it was like the holidays had come. In fact, during the holiday season, my dad would set the train up under the tree and we would all just watch it go round and round. It brought many magical hours of joy to my family growing up and is even now still bringing lots of smiles and laughter to my nieces and nephews.
So when Lionel LLC., the leader of the toy train industry, sent 50 train sets to Kids Wish Network, I was absolutely elated. The amazing toy trains will be the perfect gifts for some deserving children this holiday season. Who knows…maybe these little trains will become part of some future treasured holiday traditions, and I can’t thank Lionel LLC. enough for that. We’re so happy that the train sets are here and we can’t wait to send them out!
