My husband works in the train industry, so trains and choo choo is a common word in our household. In fact “Choo Choo” was not only Adam’s first word besides Mom and Dad, but it was also Henry’s. When I saw this adorable Elf and train on the Elf Workshoppe website I knew we had to have it! What I didn’t expect was that the quality would be so amazing. It is perfectly detailed and not a blemish in sight, and it came well packaged. I always worry about getting items like this in the mail because you never know. I told Adam, “Make sure you are a good boy because he is a special elf that makes sure you are a good boy and reports back to Santa!”
Please note: This is not a toy. We put it high up on a self for display only because I know my if my boys got a hold of it; they would break it.

Another train item that I just loved was from Deco-Plate.com I have been having the hardest time with my toddler’s lately and as strange as it may seem this plate did get them to eat most of what was on their plate. I made my son lunch and put it on this plate and said; “Lunch time” Adam came in the kitchen and wasn’t too excited for his Turkey Sandwich, and then he saw the plate and exclaimed, “Oooooh Train plate?” Followed by his 1 year old brother Henry, “Choo?” Choo?” I am going to have to order a second plate…I can see lots of fights over who gets the “Choo Choo” plate. You might not be a train fan like our family, but that is okay. Deco-Plate has a ton of designs to choose from, and you can even custom make your own! I also love that we can use the plate in the microwave, and it is dishwasher safe! Update: We have found from experience that the plate is not dishwasher safe even though it says it is. The paint also comes off in the sink with hand-washing. I would recommend only displaying these plates. The company did replace ours and the same thing happened.
