Eichhorn are a German toy maker, established in the 1800’s and they make the loveliest wooden toys. For some reason they seem to be something of a rarity outside the mainland, but they are of superb quality and always painted in bright glossy colours. We were given one of these little trains when our eldest was teeny and it is still a firm favourite –  it is also in surprisingly good condition considering it has been royally crashed, thrown and gnawed over the last four years!

This particular little engine is from their ‘Collection’ range, where you will also find this cute pull-along snail. If only toddlers had wheels and a string…
