Toy Train Set in Australian Bush – #35

Our last outback train set was set around a rocky mound and our wooden toy train set was right at home. Hayden and Keira had fun setting up and then seeing the little engines zipping around the track. Indeed Hayden declared he was the security guard and that if there were any issues he would deal with them. Sounded good to us!

Rocky Railway Set – #34

Keira and her cousin Hayden decided where this track would be build and they chose on top of the rocks. It was a bit of a challenge and our little toy trains had a few spills trying to make it around the bends but it was fun scrambling over the rocks and finding ways to prop the train tracks up. This is not a railway set for the fait hearted!

Bush Train bridge crossing fun – #33

Staying with Granny and Grandpa – we are out in the Australian bush – so this weeks toy train track is over a bush bridge crossing in the garden. It’s a smaller track but lots of fun to be outdoors with our toy train sets. Our little Brio engine chugged over the bridge with a little help from Keira and Hayden. Our little ikea train sets have certainly seen a lot of different locations now!

The cubby house – #28

Can we wind the track up over the step and through the cubby house door, the window and then back? Well that was what we asked ourselves and the only way to find out was to give it a try. We even had a little bit of fun with a GoPro on one of the engines – a different perspective from down on the IKEA track. We loved Keira’s expression as it came round the bend . Our IKEA toys were given a serious test with this track.

Oh and yes Keira has a rainbow on her forehead – she got that at a birthday party at Kinder – very cool!

The Chicken Yard – #27

Chickens and dogs aren’t known for building train sets — but this week they were part of the action. We took Aunty Melly up on her offer to use her backyard and had a perfect day to do it. It actually turned out to be very hot! There’s something magical about playing on a well cut lawn (thank you Chad!) and at the end of the build we had a chook feed in the middle!
