Old toy trains
Little toy tracks
Little toy drums
Coming in a sack
Carried by a man
Dressed in white and red
Little one, don’t you think it’s time you were in bed?
These are the words of the lullaby/Christmas carol sung to me by my grandma every Christmas eve years after I taught it to her as a kindergartener way back in 1982.
Something about it caught her ear and her imagination, and there was something so sweet about seeing someone so old love a song so new.
My grandma has been gone for years now and my littles never got the chance to know her, but that song still gets sung to them as as I remember her singing to me.
This year, I also have a little one who is obsessed with trains, so I’ve incorporated the Playmobil 123 Night Train into Christmas Eve where each child can open one present.
This beautifully thought out play set includes 3 figures, a 3 car train, tracks, luggage and supplies.
With a bright and colourful design and large, oversize pieces, the Playmobil 123 Night Train is the perfect, perfect, perfect gift to give to toddler/preschool age children to entertain their little minds as they wait for Kris Kringle and the jingle bells.
As with all toys Playmobil, the Night Train will be sure to encourage imaginative, cooperative play.
