With the enduring allure of the steam engine era, pre-schoolers who love Thomas and Friends can continue their love for trains through other games such as Primary Games’ Park My Train and Railway Valley.
These webpages boast less cutesy graphics and more challenging tasks. In Park My Train, children choose the best paths for their carriages to avoid crashing. Walk with them through the puzzles. Watch as they grow in confidence in their puzzle solving abilities parking trains and move them onto higher levels of difficulty.
Railway Valley allows children to create their own worlds with myriad networks of tracks. This website is a gateway to many other train-themed games. Dads can build on childrens’ interest in trains one step further by planning a train journey with them to Malaysia. It could be a day-trip to famous Kluang Rail Café (since 1938) in Johor for a cup of coffee (they can have Milo) or a road-trip over a few days. Here are some tips on taking a train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.
No matter what, rest assured that taking the train cross border will prove to be a memory filled adventure of precious family time spent together.
(FN: If you are not a seasoned traveller, we suggest you try the day-trip first.)
