All aboard! The Touch-It Magnetic Railway Train is pulling into the station, destination Please Touch Museum! Produced by Toycraft Corporation, this six piece wooden train was one of the first train sets to use magnets to connect the train cars to one another. Gone were the days of fumbling to hook your passenger car to the caboose!
Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don’t forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and engaging your child in the conversation. For example: What’s your favorite kind of train? Where would you ride a train to? Or simply pretend you are going on a train ride!

We're all about learning through play.
Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
