Traveling by train avoids the lost baggage, unexpected layovers, and sudden plummets in altitude that have become synonymous with traveling by catapult. Teach kids the smart way to travel with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a Chuggington Wooden Railway Trainee Roundhouse Set from Learning Curve (a $130.99 value, including shipping).
Heralded as the Best Toy in 2011 by the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, the 32-piece Chuggington Trainee Roundhouse Set piques imaginations of children and hobbyless train conductors alike. Koko, Brewster, and Vee trainees skirt down the transformable wooden track, ducking under official signage, speeding into a two-in-one tunnel, and chugging over the one-level roundhouse. Boasting an elevated track and multiple train stops, the set is also compatible with other train systems and can be upgraded with several Chuggington accessories or repurposed Barbie hats.
