This train is really kid powered! The four cars in this train connect easily with a ball and socket hitching system, perfect for little hands. Have your engine pull the train or push it. Crafted from sustainably harvested solid maple with engraved detailing. All cars connected, the train measures over 24" long. Each car is about 5" high. My First Train comes shrink wrapped on a 24" stick that can be slid over the front ball to tow the whole train.
