Choo...choo... A train from Bajo, at Oompa.

Linnea had a wonderful time reviewing this four car train from Oompa. The train consists of four flatbeds and pieces that can be arranged and rearranged to make the engine, a log car, a passenger car, a car carrier (with an included car!), or any imaginative combination your child dreams up.

A Train to Build from Bajo ($54.49)



Bajo toys are crafted in Poland out of alder, maple, beech, birch, walnut, cherry and apple wood. They are very sturdy and last for years. We are huge fans of Bajo.



Linnea took out her other Bajo vehicles (also from Oompa, although out of stock right now).


Arielle wants to play, too.



The train is also available in natural wood ($54.49). There is a larger 5 car train available for $71.99.

A few days later, they built a city using their Haba blocks, stick blockd and a silky, and they let the train run through.





This train is recommended for ages three and up. It's built for real kids and is sturdy enough to pass down. Oompa says the trains encourage imaginative play, cooperative play and independent play. That was definitely happening at my house!

Thank you, Oompa!
