The 9 Best LEGO Trains – Guidebook

LEGO railroads are very popular not among children, but also among adults. They work very reliably and can be extended and enlarged by expansion sets as desired.

To help you decide which LEGO train to buy, we have created a checklist. It contains the most important criteria that you should consider when buying. In addition, we have compiled the best and most exciting LEGO trains in our product recommendation for you.

Checklist For LEGO Trains

  • From the age of 3 years, your child can get a first train set with LEGO Duplo, which is pushed by the child. The short trains are designed in rather round shapes with animals or characters from ‘Disney’s Mickey Mouse’ and consist of 3 – 4 wagons.
  • For 2 – 5-year-olds, railroads with tracks and cranes that are moved by hand on the tracks without electricity are also suitable.
  • If your child is already 6 years old or older, the train can already run electricity (from a battery) and have more technical details that make the assembly more exciting.
  • More mechanically sophisticated LEGO train sets are an exciting technical challenge for teens and adults alike.
Lights, Sounds, Accessories And Exciting Features
  • Even the DUPLO trains for 2 – 5-year-olds have lights and can make sounds. In addition, there are wagons with tilting functions.
  • For children from 6 are suitable railroads with Bluetooth remote control and smaller accessories such as figures, landscapes, material for loading on the trailers.
  • For the ‘big ones’ there are express and freight trains that can run at different speeds and also have accessories such as warning signals and barriers. In addition, the trains can be played on from the inside thanks to removable wagon roofs.
The Play And Learning Effect Grows With Your Child
  • Even with the LEGO DUPLO bricks, children learn about the respective theme world and practice putting the bricks and figures together. This trains the hands and the brain.
  • In the next age group, children learn about the world of trains – with passenger and freight cars.
  • For ages 6 and up, the bricks get smaller and the assembly becomes more extensive. Both train concentration. The battery-powered trains train a first technical understanding.
  • Big kids will be busy with their train for a long time due to the combination of play, self-assembly, and technology and the possibility of using a control app.
  • All LEGO bricks – including DUPLO bricks – can be built together.
