Caillou is a typical 4-year-old child. At this age, role playing is as appealing as it is essential. By using their imagination, children can visualize doing things they have never done: they are empowered beyond their years and dare to try and discover new things.

Role-playing teaches children to cope with strong emotions like anger, sadness and jealousy and thereby accomplish feats they would never have thought possible.

Children learn best when they’re active and engaged. While train play may seem simplistic compared to high-tech toys, trains are actually one of the most powerful developmental toys you can give a child. It’s because of the interactive way children play with them, becoming conductors of their own worlds which they control, experiment with and journey through.
