In the early 20th century, zoo animals were transported by train. The introduction of the toy train dating to the century prior, ushered in a new era in play.
Inspired by the early modern development of the urban landscape with its zoos and freight train systems, the Melissa & Doug Zoo Animal Train Set brings these two important events together. The railway sets the stage for the young train conductor. Carriage of zoo animals to their final destination, this wooden train is entertainment in a box.
Designed for durable and creative play, the train’s engine and two animal freight cars roll down a circular track constructed of eight parts. Perfect for children 3 years of age or older, the toy railway serves to enhance motor skill dexterity and hand-eye coordination during play.
