Lionel Electric Trains opened a retail pop-up NYC store which features hundreds of different toy trains, accessories and collectibles. I was invited to tour the store during a special parenting bloggers morning event. Of course I took along my my son since he's a fan of trains.

Note: I was invited as media and received a train set. Views expressed are always 100% my own.

As soon as we step into the Lionel store my son ran over to the train sets set up for the children to enjoy. He quickly made friends with the trains "conductors" who first helped him say hello and goodbye to the train, then showed him how to control the train via remote control.

While my son was playing I took a tour of the store with another "conductor". He explained the different types of train available in store. For this holiday season, a variety of starter sets and add-ons are available to help train lovers start or build their collections.

For ages 2½ years old and up, Lionel will offer Lionel Little Lines, the perfect first train set for kids. For ages four and up, Lionel will offer their iconic Polar Express battery-powered set.

Lionel has also entered into several licensing agreements that have led to the Polar Express, the Hogwart's Express, Thomas the Tank Engine and Amtrak trains. All of these and many more will be available.

If you're in the city make sure to stop by the store. There's all sorts of cool train and train related items like books and DVD's that would make a great holiday gift.
