Caterpillar is Calling All Train Lovers! The CAT Iron Diesel Train

CAT is Calling All Train Lovers! – CAT Iron Diesel Train

By: Ashley

My son Atticus likes pretty much anything that goes – boats, planes, cars, trucks, bikes, tractors, equipment… and trains! When I saw the Caterpillar Iron Diesel Train, all I could think about was how it combined so many of his favorite things all into one set!

The CAT Diesel Train comes with an initial 3 cars, plus the engine. Once you take a closer look though, you see that the flatbed car actually carries 2 snap on Cat mini machines (a dump truck and wheel loader). Having the opportunity to play with not just the train, but the cars that make up the train (and their cargo) make this train EXTREMELY tempting! I can picture Atticus rolling the dump truck over to the train to load it up with whatever the train is hauling to work on a new construction site.

 

The train itself and the tracks are really sturdy. The recommended age for this toy is 5 and up, and it seems it should all hold up to normal toy wear and tear. I also love how easy it is to get this train up and running. It’s not tricky to get the wheels lined up on the clip_image004[1]tracks and getting the train rolling is as simple as the push of a button… literally!

I didn’t let Atticus test this toy out for me. I’m planning to donate this train set to the Capitol City Clauses this holiday season. I want him to understand how important giving is, but getting a 2 year old to understand giving up a train this cool is what you’re supposed to do? Eh, I’ll save that for another day. Some things just need to wait. J
