All aboard for some alphabetical fun! Combining music, train sounds and colourful building blocks, the Mega Bloks ABC Musical Train has all the makings of a favourite toy. Though you’ll probably need to snap the three plastic rolling wheel bases together in the order shown on the box, your toddler can independently choo-choo-choose how they want to build the train, using the stackable alphabet blocks—and, as a bonus, any other Mega Bloks they already have at home. It’ll be full steam ahead for kids keen to learn their letters, and they’ll also develop fine motor skills from assembling and reassembling the toy. Plus, with a push of the smokestack, kids are rewarded with train noises and fun tunes. (Although there’s no way to turn off the sounds, parents will appreciate that they’re not super obtrusive—a plus if your kid loves to press buttons repeatedly—and what kid doesn’t?) Great for independent play, this high-quality, sturdy train has great long-term play and hand-me-down potential.

Building blocks are always fun, but with an added plus of train play and alphabet learning, this toy sticks out as a fun and educational activity.” —Carmela, mom of two
