    I posted else where it is dangerous, they will chock on an N ga car, toddlers will break off peices like coplers and horns on HO and choke.

    If you must give a train to an 18 month old, make it a Brio.

    I am not saying parents are neglagent, some are though, but kids are just to quick.

    Amen to that Gil. Safety concerns aside, kids are quick and destructive - our 2 1/2 year-old's nickname is "Hurricane" ;) :D sign1

    Interesting you post this. I caught my three year old opening my tool box. At first I just said, "Please stay out of Daddy's stuff." But later started to think what he could get into.

    Glue
    Paint
    Knife
    Skewers
    Charged Cordless Dremel
    Tons of little pieces.

    :( My son is Bray Bray (Brady) the Freight Train.

    And then there was the time I caught my 5 year old grandson in the garage with my skill saw in hand, looking for a place to plug it in.
