Unassembled Wooden Train Set - STEM Building Project

This is a quality build-it-yourself wooden train kit intended for children 3+ years of age. This STEM building project includes an engine, coal car, tanker car and caboose. Allow your child the satisfaction of building this high-quality train set with parental assistance. The assembly process promotes confidence and fulfillment by allowing the child to learn what it means to assist in building something.

Kit includes 100 solid wood parts, 16 nylon washers, glue, sandpaper and a step-by-step instruction manual with QR codes for animation of each step. Your creativity will shine with your own choice of finish. Products for finish (paint, stain, polyurethane, etc.) are not included. Finished train overall dimensions are approximately 35 1/4" long x 5 3/16" wide x 7 7/8" high. Safety glasses, a file and a clamp (or a weighted item to help hold in place while glue sets) are required to complete the kit.

WARNING: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 years.

This wooden train kit delivers a great opportunity for a child to bond with a special parent, grandparent, or guardian in their life. Since the kits are intended for early grade school children, adult assistance is required to build. But that is exactly the point!

We encourage the family to put down their phones and spend a few evenings to build something that will last a lifetime!  The kits are considered heirloom quality and could be passed on down for multiple generations. 
We truly believe that when you invest time and attention in a child's life, they will feel valued and that makes them feel so seen and loved. 

We like to think of this as the "Little Engine that could".......... Make a difference in the child's life, providing confidence, provoking thought and creating family time at the dinner table.
Build a toy for a generation... create a memory for a lifetime.
