Little engine that couldJessicaStrong train, will push a running Thomas train backwards. Climbs up well. Batteries don’t last too long, but it’s a lot of fun while they do. Putting the switch in ‘off’ position a bit of a struggle for toddlers, but they love it.5

Best train for toddlersDestinyMy toddler loves watching this train go around the tracks. It can even pull additional carriages. Unfortunately it seems to go through batteries fairly quickly.5

Super fun for the kidsChrisFun little train that is very universal and sits well on any of those wooden tracks that most people have. And connects passenger trains to pull with ease. Has really rejuvenated my child’s love of those train tracks again.5

Works very well on aDeborahWorks very well on a standard train track. Batteries last a good amount of time.5
Need more than one design.christineWish they made more colour ways. We bought 2 to go around the track to make it more interesting. Waiting for one train to lap a long track is like watching grass grow. Speed of the train is decent on fresh batteries, but reduces significantly shortly after. Still enjoy it though. Just remember to turn it off once the children are done playing with it.5

A train running on imagination

The wooden train in the LILLABO series now has a more modern design and new parts to continue inspiring creative play and limitless imagination. It’s playtime where all ages can play together and create new worlds while they fine-tune their motor skills and learn to solve problems. Simply put, playtime at its finest.

With fully-loaded wagons, the train pulls into the small town and brakes at the station to release some wagons before rolling on towards new adventures ... Generations of children have played the same way: transformed the floor into a landscape where railway tracks wind their way around a fantasy world where anything is possible. The fact that wooden toy trains have survived so long is because it encourages playing in different ways. Bodil Fritjofsson, who has developed and updated the LILLABO toy series, including a new train set, stands behind this. ”It involves both creative play where the child constructs their own train tracks and the surrounding landscape, and classic role playing where they imagine the train in their own world”, says Bodil, who believes that many parents like the fact that a classic train track like LILLABO is made in solid and sustainable wood.

Understanding the needs of children

How can Bodil know that wooden trains and other toys are still relevant for today's children? Some of this knowledge comes from Children's School, a department at IKEA which acts as a knowledge bank and teacher for everything concerning children. Jessica Bondesson works here and explains what Children's School does. ”We want to help our employees to really understand a child's development and needs so that IKEA offers good and safe children's products”. Jessica is convinced that the train track and other parts in the robust LILLABO series have a place in our technically advanced time. Toys stimulate the imagination, develop a child's logical thinking, and encourage socialising – something which children really appreciate. ”In 2015 we carried out a large survey about playing, Play Report, which shows that children have similar needs around the world and that they like playing with their parents”. Parents tend to agree, the survey shows that most parents think everyone should play more and work less.

New trains for a new time

LILLABO has been in our range since the 1990s, but with the new parts the series jumps into the modern era where high-speed trains have replaced steam locomotives and where wagons carry loads in colourful containers. It's a train set which every child can recognise from their own surroundings – even if it's in wood. How much candy can fit in a container and how heavy a load can the locomotive pull up the viaduct? By adding new parts to the series, Bodil and her colleagues hope they help to increase play and creativity. ”And with a battery and lighting on the train, I also think that older children will play with LILLABO. You're never too old to build fantasy worlds”.

Material

What is ABS plastic?

ABS plastic is a strong and stable material with a glossy surface – making it perfect for especially used everyday objects like cutlery drawers, kitchen utensils, toothbrush mugs and bathroom hooks. Like most plastic materials, ABS is mainly made from oil-based, non-renewable raw materials. But development is progressing and we are using more and more recycled ABS. It is an important step towards our goal of only using plastic that is recycled or from renewable sources.
