my daughter (who is about to turn five) has asked for a train set for her birthday. a friend of hers has quite an elaborate train set up (complete with train table and hundreds of pieces). that's not an option for us right now, but would like to maybe get her some kind of starter set.
i love the plan toys/plan city stuff. would love something i can add to, especially since she also has a younger brother (about to turn one) who will also be able to enjoy it for years to come. would eventually like to get a table to put it all on as well.
just wondering what kinds of set ups people have or what piece i should start with. don't want to spend more than $100.
also, if people have recommendations for other brands, i'd appreciate it. i've seen a couple that give you a lot for your money, but they just look really cheap to me.
