The Dark Space Train Station
Have I ever mentioned how much I love Craig’s List? I really love it. I find so many good deals there but you have to be patient and quick. Patient to wait for the good deals and quick to act on them when they come. One way I’ve gotten quicker is with an Craigslist app. It’s faster than the RSS feeds and notifies me when items fitting my keywords are posted. Which came in handy Sunday when I responded to a post for wooden trains.
KidKraft Glow in the dark Space Train Station allows Corbin to ride the rails… into the final frontier! This wooden train set with a Sci-Fi twist includes 100 colorful pieces with dozens of pieces that glow in the dark, including vehicles, buildings, furniture, rockets, aliens and the UFO. Long, winding track takes space travelers from one end of the galaxy to the other. With this exciting space-themed train set, Corbin gets to explore deep space and go on wild adventures without even leaving the house.
We’ll be saving this one for Corbin’s birthday in December but I think he’ll really get a kick out of it. One, he’s expressed more interest in “rockets” and “robots” lately and two, the playboard is foldable which means we can set it up on the floor giving him more layout space when friends come over or if he wants to play somewhere other than the train table. Combine this set with the deal I got a few months back and Corbin has a pretty respectable train collection. Unfortunately we still don’t have enough Switch & Cross Track pieces to give us true flexibility but I keep my eye on craigslist, so there is still hope.
