With Christmas 2010 just a few short months away, the search is on for the best toys for Christmas to give that special child in your life. The lists of the hot toys of the season were released highlighting the top Christmas toys and at least one toy is guaranteed to sell out fast. When it does, people will frantically search retails stores and online sites to find the toys and will end up paying more than the recommended retail price.
Instead of competing with everyone else and looking for the hottest toys of the season, give the gift of starting a new family tradition that will be enjoyed for many years. Setting up Christmas train sets each holiday is a tradition many families enjoy and it is one in which every member of the family can participate.
The tradition begins by giving the gift of a small starter train set. The set includes tracks, an engine and caboose, and a few cars. You can add onto the set and expand it each year by adding more track, specialty train cars, and scenery and town settings, all of the things that give the Christmas tree train an authentic look and feel.
Toys today are all about computerized games and electronic toys, but an electric train set is so much more than just a toy. You can open up an whole new world of imagination for a child when you give the gift of a Christmas train set. Entirely new adventures are waiting for them each year when it comes time to set up their train set.
Two companies that are the well known when it comes to Christmas train sets are Lionel and Bachmann. They have trains that come in various scales sizes with the N Scale being the smallest, up to the G Scale, which is the largest. HO scale and O scale trains scales are the most popular sizes since these are perfect sizes when you want to add onto the set. The G Scale works better for an outdoor display since the size is much bigger than the other scale sizes.
The HO, O and G Scale sized trains are are the perfect gift for children around the ages of four and up. Avoid giving N Scale sized trains to younger children since it is smaller and has smaller parts. You also want to keep in mind that you will want to expand the set each year by adding pieces, so you want to choose a scale size that will allow you to do this.
