Do you know a child looking to get their playtime back on track – or back on tracks? If you’ve got a junior conductor in the making, they’re going to need the best train sets around.

To help you pick out the best railroads, steam engines and train sets for kids, we’ve picked out six of the top LEGO trains – from blocky animal toys on wheels to creative brick sets that let them take control of the design...

LEGO® DUPLO® – Animal Train

Animal Train

Got a train lover with a soft spot for animals? Bring the two worlds together with the LEGO® DUPLO® Animal Train. Featuring an elephant, a tiger, a giraffe and a panda, toddlers will love stacking the animals, building and rebuilding the carriages and making sure the creatures make it to their next stop on time.

Extra features like the giraffe’s wobbling neck and the ability to combine the Animal Train with other wheel-based DUPLO toys means the fun goes on and on. And while your children play, they’ll be building their fine motor skills (and pretty decent engine skills too)!

If your kids need more magic in their train toys, it’s time to board the LEGO® Harry Potter™ Hogwarts™ Express. 

With features from the films like Wanted Posters, the Daily Prophet newspaper and familiar faces like Harry Potter™ himself, Ron Weasley™ and Hermione Granger™, children can recreate their favorite scenes – whether it’s facing down a Dementor™, meeting Remus Lupin or ordering magical sweets from the Trolley Witch.

And the magic isn’t just in the story – with a moving brick wall entrance to Platform 9 ¾™ and a removable side panel and roof that enable children to play inside the train, the wizarding world really will seem to come to life!

LEGO DUPLO – Number Train

The best train sets for toddlers don’t just provide hours of fun – they also teach valuable lessons.

The LEGO DUPLO Number Train provides a chance for young children to play and get an introduction to numbers and counting. The steam engine toy will drive them to learn simple number recognition skills!

It’s not all learning, though: with two child LEGO DUPLO figures and a cat, there’s loads of roleplay scenes your child can act out, and the bright colors are sure to bring out bright ideas in your young one.

All aboard – the LEGO City Passenger Train is one of the best electric train sets around. Use the Bluetooth remote control to set the 10-speed engine going on the 20 track pieces, or pull it to a stop at the buildable platform to play with the removable roofs, seats and tables.

The train comes with accessory elements, such as four minifigures, mugs, muffins, bags and suitcases, so your playtime station manager can act out busy commutes and exciting holidays alike.

Looking to haul some cargo instead? Leave the passengers behind and pick up supplies with the tool-heavy Cargo Train.

Featuring a log wagon, a crane with rotating and extendable boom arm and a container wagon with functional hooks, you’ll be all set to get these construction supplies underway.

Drive the carriages past the control center and have them pick up gold bars, cargo pallets and even a snow scooter – or have the LEGO crook minifigure rob the precious cargo right off the tracks before it reaches its destination!
